The site highly reliable. I bought three products from them before. 7 days sharp for the delivery from UK.

Kindly keep us updated on the progress.
Cheers
Thanks Naveen. I have been reading about the low amp ratings or usage (I am not sure of the term) of the LEDs that it requires a custom repeater circuit since the LEDs tend to blink much faster than the OE repeaters. Any concern around that or its alright to use without the OE repeater circuit?

Kindly confirm it again. I had only used LED repeaters and for the rear no plates and they said it would be fine. I think this would work out fine but to be on the safer side, just confirm it.

Naveen, I checked with AutobulbsDirect over their FB page and this is what they had to say

AutobulbsDirect wrote: "Hi Arun, you shouldn't need any additional components with the PY21W on a Fiesta. It should be a direct replacement."

I guess we are good to place the order now!

Hi Arun,

It's really nice to hear that they are plug-n-play. Any idea about the total costs in INR?

Great to hear that. I had that feeling too since these were just LED's. It's good to place the order. Keep us updated buddy.

It shouldnt be expensive. I had bought few items from them. They are reasonable and have very good collection of lighting products. Best part is that they deliver very quickly.

Great and informative thread but what about those of us who are less technically inclined in these things. Is there anyone who makes Led headlamps, parking lamps, foglamps, rear light clusters and reverse lamps for cars? Say as simple as Jeeps? I would really like to know and get work done for my CJ3B and the MM550. Im not capable enough to do this as a DIY as im not technically inclined with electrics and electronics.

Hi

Check out dealextreme.com - I recently got DRL's - brake light - gear knob from them. At about 1/3rd the price, of accessory shops & decent quality. May not be the best - but VFM

They also sell all kinds of LED "bulbs", for the rear tail lamps, side indicators, parking lights !! Worth checking it out.

Delivery time around 2 weeks



Cheers

Hi,

Can you provide the circuit details including the component values. That would really help in assembling the right components and also if possible, please display the circuit in a document. I am planning to install the lights in the bumper. Awesome work done by you....

I have ordered for 2 LED replacement lights from ebay. Total cost including shipping is Rs.174, each is a 16 LED light. Hoping to get some light inside my old Esteem. The length is 31 mm against the 30 mm of the stock bulbs, I am sure I can squeeze them in. @ gigy, you are the pioneer man (not the stupid stereo), you tried this with your bare hands almost 6 years ago. Hats off.

Got my lights and installed in the car too. NOW the interior looks fresh and bright. Wonder why car manufacturers do not make this standard. Will try to click pics in the night.
