    LED Headlight Bulbs

    my reading of the regs apply that only to manufacturers and OEM retailers..I am not a lawyer.. but my wife is.. so I will take advice.. strange that I can find no evidence of prosecutions.. there is a regulation for wire and gas discharge bulbs..there is no mention of led.. presumably because there were none ..there have been prosecutions for dazzling oncoming vehicles.. but not for some years time..seems the CPS have no interest.. Defence would rely on the use of the word equivalent..which is allowed.. so as long as it maintains the correct beam pattern and is a acceptable colour not blue red green etc then it should pass. the regs state the wattage limit but LED is about light not candle power..I don't think the MOT station that fails the car on having bulbs that are bright white is going to do well in court... considering Merc Audi VW etc have them.. but I will go and talk to Simon my local mot guru.. and see what he can add..

    LED Headlight Bulbs

    looked at the regulations regarding dipped beam lights.. strange thing is .. there is no standard except upper limit of wattage.. however will tiptoe about until I am sure what the situation is..Halogen is so outdated..and the colour is not good..the range is pathetic..i just need to see further when driving at night..

  10. you could have used the Toyota OBD software to modify your settings.. might have been a little more subtel..but it is nice you get to I..D the pins on the dash..
