Dim Sidelights
« on: September 13, 2021, 03:50:11 PM »
2007 jazz 1.4 when i first  got this car i noticed the front sidelights although covered with the plastic cowel were very  dim.. but even after changing all the bulbs pre winter measure and replaced the front sidelight bulbs with LED bulbs they still appear even with a white light quiet dim compared to other cars.. anyone else noticed this

Absolutely. The original filament bulbs were useless. When I had one go I replaced both with LEDs, a lot whiter but still pretty dim. I'm on a second, brighter set of LEDs now and they're... adequate.
These are they https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/393103798767 for what it's worth. I see it doesn't actually quote the power.

Or is it? What do you think?

I had bought the very same one year ago but they are not bright enough in my opinion..

I have LED sidelights from Classic Car LED's and find them bright enough & their H4's are fantastic.
