Two options

1. Spend cash/time on a bespoke loom/relays and then debug and with due respect few people on here have decent practical skills plus you're still left with a filament bulb that that takes significant current .............or

2. Spend 30 on bulbs and plug them in.

Horse, water, lead
It was just to get an idea of what they looked like fitted and running to weigh up options of going the wiring route or fitting led bulbs. Fear not I will Google

Just an update I went for a set of LED lights on my car in the end, probably a bit over exposed in the picture but my god they were bright! Only moved the car about as not yet registered but they certainly do the job and if driving in the night they should provide good visibility.

Don't throw your old bulbs away tho, a pernickety MOT inspector may fail the car if you cant prove the lights are CE marked, which most of the cheaper ebay from china stuff isnt!

Unlikely to happen but possible

Great to see this on a Z and much needed!!

I was considering the same but two things are stopping me: 1. Will they be too bright for oncoming traffic? (Some HiDs on stock motors are already too bright sometimes) and 2. I haven't found any that say they are road legal on the packet!

Which did you buy?

I would love to have them not just from the brightness perspective but also from reducing load on the alternator etc.

Interesting Rob, thanks. Wouldn't they look a bit odd on a Z? Or were you showing me the type approvals?

They would look odd on a Z but perhaps hide them behind covers.

Anyway just showing that they reckon these are legal?
