Thanks for all that, i was about to ask if anyone had any other good suggestions.

seems these dont need a canbus and are cheap and are philips? Seems too good to be true at 36W too? From altona in Vic. I shall give them a shot.

They seem to need the socket adaptors which i have but i dont know how to attach the adaptors without doing a diy job, i was hoping it was a simple plug and play.

They do require the Canbus adaptors I linked earlier, I also mentioned that these type would be extremely bright which you might get away with using on the high beams if they were H7 :undecided: but would think they are way too bright for the low's.

Ok so the search continues, i guess buying the philips for 200 bux would be my best option? Pricey but the safest option. Is there room for the canbus in the headlight?

What about the Narva ones I linked to the Roland eBay store, seem like a good design and price is right :goodjob2:

The canbus adapters are quite small and should fit inside the light housing...they would on my GD anyway.


You could go to your local Supercheap store and check them out first.

Depends on how the bulbs are secured on your vehicle, if secured with the spring clip thatís fine, if secured by the power plug youíll require adaptors :link: 2pcs H7 LED Headlight Bulb Holder Adapter For KIA K3/4/5 Hyundai Sonata 9 | eBay

Hi all, I was following this topic even before I got my own i30. Just got an SR and couldn't really stand the halogen bulbs so swapped them for $30 LEDs from eBay. Much better colour consistency and brightness is okay. Only issue is that I get an error message on the dash now telling me to check my low beams. Even though they were meant to be error-free the result is quite acceptable for $30!

You'll need Canbus decoders to eliminate the error on dash :link: 2x H7 Car LED Load Resistor CAN Bus CANBus Decoder Error Free Canceller Adapter 730052890211 | eBay

Without the decoders the LED bulbs you have installed wont last long as the extra current will burn them out in time.

They're obviously for the high beams at 6000Lm per bulb, why not the obviously better quality Narva kit at a cheaper price :confused: :link: Narva H7 12/24 Volt LED Conversion Kit (18008) 9350156004683 | eBay they have the correct focusing tip to replicate the proper cut off line without light spray.

I didn't swap to LEDs but when I upgraded my globes I must say the PD is one of the easiest cars I've ever owned to swap headlight globes in..  :goodjob:

Autobarn sell the JW brand in Australia, last time I checked them out they were a triangular shape bulb with only 180 degree light throw.

They provide 2 versions (1 for reflector headlights, 1 for projector headlights). The one with triangular shape bulbs is specified for projector headlights. Will the 180 degrees light throw-out be better to avoid dazzling other drivers? Searching around but I can't find any review abt it

Well the bulb that is used within the projector is a 360 degrees light throw Halogen so typically you would be looking for an LED that best replicates the halogen design like these Narva units :link: Narva LED Headlight Kit - H7 | Supercheap Auto

That's not to say the JW bulbs wont work as I've never physically tested their new design but as with all the previous design types out there the only ones that have proven to function best were the LED's that best replicated the halogen as that was what the OEM housings were made to accommodate.

Not wanting to 'threadjack' nor start another thread for a pretty dull question but RE: the HB3 high beam bulbs that are in the PD's. Firstly, they're pretty poor - so thinking replacing the halogen bulbs in them with one of the cheapo-ish LED ones. We live rural, my wife does a lot of night drives home in winter and well I think the high beams aren't up to the task .

Now I know these are technically illegal - but IMHO you run the main risk with those in your low beams - you'll be dipping your high beams anyway, so far less likely you'll draw attention to yourself.  Plus I'd be looking for something looking more normal e.g 4300K-5000K colour range. 

I have to say I find it really stupid that I could potentially get in trouble for putting LED bulbs in my high beams and yet I can mount a massive LED light bar or spotlights on my car and apparently use those completely legall!   Haha what is the difference really between them?

I don't know if anyone has found any cheapies they were reasonably happy with?

Also wondering if the PD needs CANBUS capable LEDs for it's high beams?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Hi mate

Which LEDs did you buy for it? The colours seem to match well!

Bought on eBay. Item number 223525972595. Correction, about $20.
I don't do any night driving, just the occasional tunnel and carpark. I realise now that these are a bit dimmer than the original halogens. I don't think it'd be suitable for a lot of night driving.

On the FD front (literally), my combo DRL blinkers glow a nice modern bluish every time the ignition is on. When I switch to parkers, they look sickly yellow in comparison, so I've finally ordered a bag of W5W LEDs, just be be consistent with the fresh look.

Sorry, not meaning to hijack.
