The headlights on a TR3A (or at least mine) are completely useless. I have thought of replacing the bulbs with LED bulbs. Has any one got any experience of these LED headlight bulbs?

There is a thread about this already - anywhere on the big heap.

I have very cheap ones on my TR4A and I love it. I will see if the TÜV realizes them tomorrow....

This thread might be of interest.

Quite a few of us have upgraded to Cibie/Valeo with Osram night breakers as referenced in this thread also.

I have a pair like these going spare

 

http://www.supertweaks.com/land-rover/land-rover-defender/land-rover-defender-lighting/land-rover-defender-trucklite-led-headlight-kit

 

They are specified as 'off road only' as they do not have an 'E' mark.  

The beam pattern for me is too wide, not perfect flat top that I am used to on H4 halogens.

Were  fitted on my TR 3   for a week only and then I went to Valeo units with LED bulbs. 

You will need to change the plug and wires on the headlamp bucket.  They work with negative earth electric circuits only, so an orig car will need converting.

£90 the pair plus postage  

 Will fit all negative earthed TR2-8

PM me if interested 

cheers

These are what I have, fitted to H4 Valeo lamp units

They are the best I have come across, & cheaper than some.

What I'm looking for my Norton is a main / dipped beam BA15d LED bulb. BA20d is no problem to buy, but "15" is....

I have been asked to test the latest incarnation of BA15D headlamp bulb for these people

I tested an earlier version, but it required some modification.

Hi Bob, 

if they are looking for a second volunteer please send me a PM.

:)

BUT - today I failed the TÜV with my TR4A because of my LED bulbs:

no significant difference from dipped beam to main beam, just lot of light and much more lot of light.

As the TÜV inspector had a closer look through the glas and he realized the LEDs "the wheel was off (the car)" (german saying).

You know what I meen?

Ciao, Marco

Yes, some cheaper headlamp bulbs do not "dip" they just dim.

The ones I have give a very definate dip beam  299846409_LED-LEDdip.thumb.jpg.679728efebc5cfca6f466921e8ae163e.jpg
