Is there anywhere we can pick up the finished product (for those of us who can't wire or solder without burning down the house/garage)?

I am interested in replacing all bulbs (except may be headlight and reverse light) to LEDs. Are these direct replacement types available in Bangalore? Can somebody suggest good brands to look for, place to buy and indicative prices?

It should be reliable in long run, directly fit into stock holders of baleno, bright (at least same as stock bulbs), preferably white in color, and last but not least- they should offer significant power savings (of course!)

I'd be really interested in finding out more about that too.... Gigy any chance you could throw more light on Santhosh's query. It'd be interesting for us, the recent Baleno modifiers!

i have seen blueraven316 do lighting changes in few cars here in forum, the dashboard. i think he can help you in getting the lamp change. there is direct replacement available in international markets. may be he can source them.
LED are highly reliable when installed with the proper resistance or number of them in series as per its voltage. there are high intensity ones now much cheaper than before

Hi,
The most powerful LED on date is about 2 watts and you may need 10 of them to replace each of the head lights. These High power LEDs are manufactured by Philips and cost about $2 each in US. I don't think it is possible now to replace head lights with LEDs. Of course you can replace most of other the lamps with Hi-power LEDs. Bright white LEDs are not the same as Hi-power LEDs.

Hi,

I tried a DIY install of LEDs in cabin light of my Santro last week-end. They are better/brighter than the 'stock' bulb.

1 Watt LEDs were sources from Om Electronics at SP Road.

Name:  IMG033.jpg
Views: 6312
Size:  34.6 KB

All three LEDs are wired in series. (One with white base board costed 65 and green board Rs.80) I used a parallelly connected 56 and 33 ohms 1 Watt resistors as current limiter. I used the resistors, what I had with me. Ideally 22 Ohms 2 Watt would have been okay.

I have wrapped the stock bulb with insulation tape and kept installed in the holder as it is. So it doesn't glow but used for connecting the wires from LED circuit to holder for power.

LEDs are stuck to panel using double sided adhesive tapes.

This thread is useful. Thanks to you guys.
