  1. No worries at all! And Yes, there replaceable from what I remember. Think the sensors are about £20 each depending on where you source them from. Don’t need the full sensor and cable, just the sensor... :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Probably an abs sensor, I m pretty sure hill assist uses the abs to hold the car from rolling back. I’d be checking the connections to the abs sensors and cleaning them if needed. Worst case, replace them :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Let me check through my eBay account and other accounts. Honestly cannot remember, I’ll get back to you on that one matey! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. The link posted is based on led bulbs in a projector style housing with a lense to project the light in the form of a clean cut off. Now, if we’re looking at replacing halogen bulbs with LED’s in a reflector housing, this is a different kettle of fish. The length, position of the led chips themselves, and the diameter play a key part of of producing a decent cut off line in the reflector bowl. As long as the placement of the LEDs match where the filament sits and the length from the base of the H7 bulb to the led match, 9/10 you should be fine. At this point it’s a matter off rotating the LED bulb until you match the cut off line of a halogen. Usually you would face the LEDs left to right if using a double sided bulb. As long as you meet the above criteria. You will not blind anyone. I’ve taken my car to an mot testing station and had them check the cut off and alignment and no issues were apparent. On top of this the cat passed its MOT. This is a using H7 dipped beam LEDs in a reflector housing and not projector. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. No worries, just make sure they are like this in your headlight. Angle is not the best when the photo was taken :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. Sorry, I mean make sure the LEDs are facing left to right and are dead center. Not up and down :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. As long as you’ve aligned them and they’re secure, you’ll pass no issues. Just make sure they are left to right and if you can align them at dusk using a wall or car park. LED tech has come on leaps and bounds in a year or so. Quite impressive really :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Hahah I’m terrible on eBay and AliExpress. The adaptor a are a fiver on eBay mate. If anything like mine, these are the adaptors: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/143651585804 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Should look exactly like this - here’s mine at the moment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Make sure the bulbs are aligned left to right (if a double sided led variant) and you need a special h7 led adaptor to hold them in place if this is for your dipped beams. I’ve got some in place at the moment and the beam pattern is exactly the same as your halogen one on the left except a lot brighter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. It’s normal, mine has done this since day one. If you’ve give it some beans and got the engine bay nice and warm. It tends to do this to cool it down one last time. Honestly, nothing to worry about. It will hardly ever do it in winter, more so in summer or clammy weather :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Stick sync 3 in, buy a un-made harness and swap the pins over on the harness and then it’s 90% plug and play. Well worth it. Familiarise yourself with the guide already on the forum. You may have to splice or route about 5 cables. So easy :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Bleeding hell! Sounds like you’ve had fun and games with that! I remember when I used to work on an industrial estate and I’d be getting nails in my tyres at least once or twice a month. Was a nightmare! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. I’ve got them in hand, powered them briefly outside of the headlamp and the cutoff is indeed bang on. Was really impressed. Couldn’t see any light spillage on the wall at all. Just need to find the time to remove my old LEDS and pop these in lol! At the moment, I’m really struggling to find the time to do anything car related. With the local lockdown in greater Manchester getting worse each day and the lack of child care for my daughter and with my partner being a key worker. We’re all struggling for time and what not. I’m an IT infrastructure engineer and with the increased demand in infra and anything networking related due to COVID, I’m ran off my feet and constantly shattered. And the fact half my colleagues are furloughed or now jobless... it’s mental. Just got a lot on at the moment like everyone else probably has, sorry for gibbering on!

  15. No way, I always forget about doing it that way! Jeeze. Thanks for reminding me :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
