Interior LED conversion

Post by Uncle_Gravy » Sun Aug 09, 2015 9:23 pm

Hi,

Just wondering what LED bulbs are required for the interior and boot.

Used this website to buy all the stuff LED's for my Accord and hugely impressed with their services http://www.horizonleds.co.uk/

Cheers.

I have now LED in every place of my Z4 - except the lights for the registration plate.

The great panel is in the boot.

All mine were t10 on 04 roadster. Although the one lamp in the middle of cluster above rear view has to be short in depth. I believe some Have the Feston type.

Just to update this, The place I normally shop for LED's updated their page after i inquired about lights for the Zed, and they built up the kit - http://www.horizonleds.co.uk/oem-led-ap ... or-led-kit

Huge transformation over the stock dull yellow bulbs, the only pain was the light unit on the roof, you have three lights (two spot lights and one dome) The dome one was a pain I had to completely dissemble the light unit as the LED wouldn't fit through the hole, but if you push the connector up from below through the hole it is the right width and height to go through and fit in the bulb holder.

As they are different fittings does this kit match up colour wise? What's the quality like and do they last?

Horizon LEDs have not responded to a query I sent them, so won't be getting anything from them in future.

I found the same thing and managed to do the map reading lights on either side of the center one as there's no cover, but the center one is behind the big clear plastic. Does the clear plastic clip off of the electronic part? I gave it a little lever and the bits near the buttons looked like it wasn't moving so I stopped?
