Retrofit LED headlights or daytime running lights

Post by dizzyheights » Sat Mar 18, 2017 7:50 pm

Hi All

Hope everyone is enjoying their Q2's - I've seen quite a few of them out on the road now.

I have a Q2 Sport and now wish I had specced LED lights. I didn't fully appreciate that the daylight running lights were halogen and not LED as per the A3 S-Line I had previously. Anyway, has anyone replaced the halogen headlights with aftermarket LED headlights or can you easily replace the halogen DLR with a LED? It would make it look so much better.

Cheers all,

Rich

Yes, it's easy to change to LED DRL's - I've done it on both our Q2's. Just search for PW24W LED lights. I bought the more expensive COB (circuit on board) ones for £20 per pair and have no errors showing. You can buy cheaper though.

Thanks for the quick response. Do you have any pictures of the new lights you could show me?

Cheers

The camera has somewhat exaggerated the spread of light. In real life, the light doesn't actually run the entire length of the headlight glass, but it gives you a rough idea.

This is our other Q2. Lights appear to be hardly visible in this shot but, again, my phone isn't actually able to pick up the real effect. They appear brighter from a distance. Imagine a balance between the red car and the orange one :D

Hi

I can't actually see the pictures - all I see is a minus sign in a circle. Not sure if it's my settings or a problem with uploading images to the forum?

Cheers

Sadly I can't seem to see them either. Would love to see what the LED lights look like.

Any chance the photos could be re-uploaded?
