    I've now fitted the classic car LEDs in my standard h4 headlamp units... works a treat. Makes a massive difference to night driving confidence - the lower current draw is nice to have too. Personally I really wouldnt bother with the 'dalek' looking dedicated LED lamps - a normal headlamp with the LED conversion is all you'll ever need.

    Mind you. I do still love the look of the cibie spotlights I put on mine - shame they are redundant now!

    Going slightly of the original thread,
    does anyone no if there is any difference between the P700 and the PL700's apart from the
    badge ?
    Is there any difference in light performance with the H4 bulbs in place,
    cheers,
    Chris.

    May look at the led replacements if they are considered to perform well.
    Not bothered about saving current draw in my case.
    At one time you could get 100 w H4's for use of road and were quite good as
    long as you kept moving otherwise the lenses would melt .
    They were available to buy but illegal for road use.

    I am 100% confident once you have seen the classic led’s performance you won’t want anything else!!

    I think the current Wipac set-up I have is fine. You are not going to want to go as fast on an unlit country road compared to a lit motorway, so not sure what the problem is?
    You have lit motorways???

    Yes, its a tarmac moat that's used to keep the city people in where they belong.

    I live outside the great moat toward the east coast, a lot of the roads around my neck of the woods are fairly
    well lit so you could get away with the old tungsten stuff .
    The only problem, if you can call it that is a few years ago some local mp decided to have the lights switched
    off at midnight to save energy (he was then called the prince of darkness).
    You definitely need decent lights around our roads at these times, I then adopted led's for my push bike as my shifts
    at work finished at midnight and you couldn't see a damn thing with crap lights.
    By the way I'm not usually out in the cob after midnight.
    Thanks to the above for further advice .
    Chris.

    I live in the rural Cotswolds. Not even street lights in the village and deer frequently appear from the hedgerows. The muntjac are the worse. They just amble even when you’re bearing down on them. Good lights essential
