The adaptors are flopping around on the bulb itself, not even tried to put them into the housing. Got these adaptors - :link: Pair of H7 Car LED Headlight Bulb LED Adapter Holder LED Adapter Socket Base AZ | eBay

Well they will be loose until they secure into the housing, the problem with the ones you've linked there are that they have no rear upright tabs so you have something to grab onto to twist into place.

These are the type I have, you can clearly see the rear tabs you'll need to be able to lock them in :link: H7 LED Bulb Holder Adapter Base For KIA Sorento Hyundai Veloster Sonata Tucson 9 | eBay

Ah ok, I see the missing tabs. I'll give them a go even though they're loose.

My JW's for the high beams arrived today, only a quick test up the street at the moment so I'll road test them properly next time I'm doing a night run.

They do seem to throw a good distance, the trees at the end of the street are a good 130 meters away.

I put led on my high beams a few weeks ago, needed to modify the light housing a little, remove some plastic so the bulb would give the correct light pattern. Very happy with the change, nice, bright and uniform light colour. And it lights up the roadsides a lot better, reach is about the same but much better illumination.

I used Ledson LED 11G Extreme Focus bulbs.

The Ioniq is sort of a PD i30 with EV or Hybrid drive train, so a lot of shared components. I wonder if one of our Ioniq owners, maybe @xiziz or @Shambles could investigate /compare to see if the headlights are shared.  :cool:

My lamps are single bulb BiXenon with mechanical shutters - the housing is not shareable with the PD series at all.

@Georgevagelas I don't think the light housing or reflector is the same (pd has lens projector high beams I think?) but for the sake of brands that provide a good and legal light pattern it can be helpful to know that the Ledson LED bulbs are the real thing. :)

Housing in Ioniq EV is LED low beams in projector lenses and HB3 9005 Halogens in standard high beam reflectors. (there is a full halogen setup on the base model though).

I found @xiziz led bulbs :link: LEDSON LED headlight bulbs 11G Xtreme Focus (H7) and they look interesting. Lumiled ZES LED with build-in Canbus, 4500 Lumens, 3 years warranty etc for 110 euros. They offer some bulb holders too. :link: Lamphållare H7 för LED Kia & Hyundai (V1) - Lamphållare för LED - LED - Hel- och halvljus - Diod & Xenon till Bil and :link: Lamphållare H7 för LED Kia & Hyundai (V2) - Lamphållare för LED - LED - Hel- och halvljus - Diod & Xenon till Bil. Which one you think fits at i30 PD (low beams) because none of them refers to i30? Also, bulbs' length is 82mm. Will they fit inside headlights or should I buy new dust covers?

Δεν έχει ιδιαίτερη σημασία αν δεν λέει για το i30 pd. Σημασια έχει το βύσμα και το i30 εχει Η7, οπότε τα περισσοτερο θα χωράνε. Σίγουρα θα μπορεις να βρεις κατι στο σκρουτζ .

Doesn't matter that they dont list i30, the PD uses the H7 so almost all of them should fit.

@Georgevagelas I bought the extended dust covers just to be safe, they are rubber ones that fit outside the grooves. Same store I bought from. :)

Might be some 3D printable ones too if you know someone with a printer.

H7 are centered so only depth should be a possible issue, if you take out one of the current bulbs and measure the distance from the holder to the cap, how far is it? Mine had good clearance on all sides except top because the socket is off center with H3.

Also, don't forget to align the bulbs vertically, makes a huge difference to the light pattern.

Hello! I just fit led bulds with external canbus at low beams! I am very satisfied with the result but I have a question. After start/stop the leds are flashing for half second and then back to normal! Is this normal for our car?

I'd guess it's a voltage drop when the engine reignites(as is normal when the load on the 12v rail increases), the Halogens are slow to respond so the slight dimming might not be noticed. LEDs are immidiate so they will turn off if they get to little voltage, if the voltage fluxuates around the minimum voltage of the bulbs they would flash.
