DirectInjection:
Very roughly speaking you can see a considerable increase in the light from LED vis a vis light from same wattage halogen.

Halogens are about 15 Lumens/watt. 60 W would give 900 lumens.
LEDs are more than 50 Lumens/watt. Same 60 W would give 3000 lumens.

Much brighter than your tubelight.

even the delhi metro is using led lights as the main front lights in some of the metro trains. anyone in delhi can check it out on the underground central secretariat - vishwavidyalya route. i have seen it on 2 trains only, rest are still on halogens.

Thumbs up

Hello BHPians,

Nice to read that people are waking-up to newer possibilities in the Automotive Lighting sphere.

In fact after my project of converting my Yezdi Roadking to a "FULL LED LIGHTING SYSTEM BIKE (posted in the related catagory on this forum) i have converted my Matiz to almost a FULL LED LIGHTING CAR (except for the headlights which i intend to complete shortly).

If interested you may e-mail me for the pictures of my conversion on my Matiz, and by the way i have also converted my HOME LIGHTING TO LED (70% conversion done already saving around 700 Rupees on Electricity Bills per Month !)

Thanks
Pradeep S Sulladmath

Question

hey pradeep,

how did you take care of heat extraction?

is there space for heatsinks in the headlights?

also, as LEDs do not project heat in the forward direction (direction of light output), how do you take care of fogging problems?
