Afternoon,

 

I'm looking at ordering replacement LED's for my 2017 370z Nismo, and was wandering which ones I can replace, where to buy from and which bulbs to buy?

 

Also can I get different colours?

 

I don't want to re-invent the wheel, so if any of of the club members have done this - then hopefully it will make my job easier.

 

Cheers,

 

Paul

Can you be specific about where you want these LEDs for? Interior? Exterior? Etc...

Sorry for the delay in replying.

 

The only lights I have changed on my car so far are the side lights and the trunk light. I have used the same cheap LED's for all 3 lights and they seem to work fine, giving a nice cool white. They're not blindingly bright, but I have DRLs so it's not an issue. The best thing about the side lights is that they match the colour of the headlamps. The trunk light is brighter than the useless stock bulb and a much better colour.

 

Here's the ebay link - CLICK HERE

 

I've noticed at the bottom of the ebay page that you may be able to get them even cheaper.

Looks good! Let us know what you think of them.

I don't think they need to be CANBUS compatible but it won't do any harm.

Come to think of it, I've replaced the interior bulbs with LEDs too - it's much nicer to have a slightly brighter, cool white interior, instead of the dull old-fashioned yellow stock bulbs. I think I may have used the same ones as in my post above.

I'd like someone else to spend £11.98 on a pair of these and tell me if they're any good...

 

http://www.ebay.co.u...sd=201729996084

 

ps - for the sake of transparency, at the end of the advert it says they're not actually Osram bulbs, but the LED on the tip of the bulb is maunfactured by Osram!

It'll be interesting to see what you get. Although the advert tries to be informative, I'd have liked to see images of the bulbs.

Hi CWM370z, I received the 7 LED's and fitted 5 so far... just waiting for decent weather to fit the reversing lights and I ordered two LED side lights aswell.  I'm sure it was a mistake mate...

 

The ones I have swapped looked really good though and very bright...

 

I Also bought a trim removal kit from halfords as I didn't want to damage any parts while removing the panels...

 

Pic attached of kit and was about £24...

 

:D

looks like they have not picked my order correctly then will have to wait till they see my email , glad your order was ok .

 

had you not looked on ebay for trim removal  tool kits much cheaper than Halfrauds and some with lifetime guarantee.

Yes mate, but me "Can't wait for anything" :rolleyes:

 

I did pay over the odds... but they seem really durable.

 

Hope you get your lights sorted soon.

You do get what you pay for to a certain extent when it comes to trim removal tools.  The cheaper ones are more likely to mark your trim and bend or snap.

 

But, that said, they must be very cheap to make and some companies are more greedy with their profit than others so the most expensive ones aren't always the best.

I recognise that card. I think I must have used these people before (must be with Sarah's Juke as I've not put any LEDs in the Zed).

The discount code looks handy! ;)

Good news on the delivery!  ;)

 

Reverse lights were a bit of a pain... as the trim was pain to remove, trying not to pop anything ;-)

 

Just working up to swapping my sidelights now.... should be fun!!!! NOT
