Cheers guys. @Crustycottage I've checked my piggy bank and think I can stretch to the extra 5 bucks on this occasion.  :D

I even ordered from Craigs 1st (slightly dearer) link, because they had better approval rating!  :mrgreen:

OK so I replaced the two Reversing light globes with the T15 LED globes as per Craig's link. Very easy task although the passenger side fitting didn't seem to lock back in as tightly as the driver's side so I hope it doesn't work loose. Haven't tested them yet as doesn't get dark here until 9pm. Nearly my bed time! :D

So I stayed up to test them... I probably should have taken a photo. Definitely better vision on reversing camera and much brighter light. Camera is still quite grainy at night, but now quite useable. Before the upgrade on a dark night things looked like shadows whereas now some colour and you can see what things are!  :goodjob: Thanks @Crustycottage  and @CraigB

What Craig said, Dazz. I'm on a mine site 300 clicks north from Hill Billy Hell iwith a Toyota Hilux and the reversing camera is worse than cr*p (average) I had LEDs in my Veloster before and took them for granted. anything that makes reversing safer is a good thing in my humble opinion :faint: :victory:

I wasn't brave enough to go with LED headlight Globes, but did upgrade the reversing globes to LED to improve the reversing camera image at night.

I hardly drive at night so $60 odd to upgrade all four headlight globes was all I decided to do.  :goodjob:

They are a great little car.  :victory:

hi guys I've checked the owners manual and can't find an answer.  just need advice on adjusting the headlight beam height. I think it's a little low. now I know about the screws that needing turning around the headlight but unsure which screws it actually is. I'm thinking I found them but didnt want to start turning screws without being certain.

found the marks that sat U-D and L-R. are the U-D further down into the engine bay while the L-R is right underneath the plastic cover?

Have you a headlight retrostate by the steering wheel?

If so, is it possible that is set at the low.

Also, are you looking at the height with empty boot.

We don't get a height adjuster on the dash except in the tourer and 3 door GD's imported from Europe.  :undecided:

Sorry Jayce, I forgot to check. Yes that is them.  :goodjob:

Left and right should be ok (they throw a nice wide arc.)

You might be able to bring them up a bit but not too much or you will dazzle oncoming traffic. :cool:
