LED headlight bulbs in Halogen unit

Post by ConnorH97 »

Has anyone fit LED bulbs into halogen units? If so is it just plug and play? Thanks for any responses in advance

I did on a 6R (2011)

I had to buy an adaptor to secure the new lights. Something like https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2Pcs-H7-Sock ... SwrjZa6TEp

My new bulbs had a lot of cables, so be sure that you have room inside the headlight.

What I can tell you is that I realised I was blinding other drivers... Everybody was squinting when I crossed them. And I could see the reflection on street signs 50m away... I have normal reflector headlights.
I removed them and Im' in the process of buying projector headlights to install the LED bulbs.
