Haz, i have been looking at these and just cant see the difference between normal ones and LED ones when looking at them. any tell tale signs that will clearly show me the difference?


If you look at your existing units
You will see a honycombe diamond formation in the clear lens

But on the led units these lines are square not diamond shape.

Have something to contribute?

This is a video of the OEM LED lights on an ST

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrCbfU02vm0

There are some pics of them on here, they have a straight pattern and double sided LED side lights

http://pumabuild.com...roducts_id=2151

Although the price they charge is double that of Ford Parts :S

These are my standard, single sidelight bulb halogen lights with a honeycombe pattern

Hope that makes it a bit clearer mate. The LED ones are a hell of a lot brighter too :)

Ow i wont be getting any Crimbo presents this year mate,
But when i purchase i will require the ford part number for them,
Because fordpartsuk.com will be my supplier or europeanparts.com in germany.

I also have my eye on a MTX-75 short shifter on ebay, Only 30 pounds but hey, ill get em sometime next year.

I've got the chance off a mate of mine to have a set for £100? Worth it Haz? Also, do I require any mods to fit them? Is it just as easy as swapping them over?

Good question. If there was an option on the titanium, then there might be?

Okay mate :) personally I think they are much better looking than the standard lights. I'm sure you'll be pleased

This is a comparison of the halogen and LED's with HDR off then on to show the different light patterns

And a finished photo and video of the indicators, I have to say though that the brake lights don't really show up over the LED's so I couldn't get a good video of them

Yeah the brake light and indicator are bulbs, but could always be replaced with LEDs

I have a question Haz. Got the lights today. All that there is on the back of them is a blue connector for the LED's. Do I have to use the existing loom in the car?
