I've been looking at some Crees. They are the 25w ones. Are these legal?

Hi Shonzyd,if they are legal or not is debatable normal cree's run between 1w to 5w.I sell 7w cree,and being front facing are only good for reversing that is my opinion. that is why i have the 7.5w plasma which is forward facing and with 360 illumination,and they are very bright.I have had a look at these 25w cree and one website can't make up his mine what he is selling one minute quoting 5w next 16w,watch the video across the top quotes 25w and by the side of it 11w and to be honest don't look any brighter than mine.so you are left with a dilemma,pay £17 bulb plus postage and take the risk of being acquainted with pc plod like we all do.I live in an area saturated with plain and stripy police cars.i have been followed i have even faced them but never been stopped with the bulbs i have fitted.would i put in 25w sidelight leds more than likely not,the juke sits high and if they are that bright as they state you would probably blind the on coming driver

So in terms of matching the "bright white" colour from LEDs - has anyone got a good headlight solution they can recommend for me to try?

Just replaced my headlights bulbs with osram night breaker unlimited and the side lights with osram cool blues in my Nismo.. They are a real nice combo and compliment each other nicely .. I'm not sure i actually like the look of the blue side light bulb when its not lit but on I love it . It's rated no higher than standard but appears much brighter due to whiteness . If I decide to try anything else it will be LED option .
Is it just my car, the side lights were extremely hard to twist n remove , got there in the end lol

Hi, after reading numerous posts on LED's I bought a set from a guy on this site, sorry I can't remember the name. They were excellent but came with a recommendation that you may have use a drop of silicon to keep them in place. Well I tried that and other things but one or both flickered on occasions in my opinion due to the length. I then bought the ones on the right which are bright but not as much as the longer ones. These have proved ok, no flickering and bright.

IT SOUNDS VERY MUCH LIKE THESE WERE NOT INSTALLED CORRECTLY you need to bend the wires out first make sure they are a tight fit switch your lights on to make sure they are working then put a dab of silicone either side over the back of the bulb and the holder before fitting it in to the holder.In life you always get the odd bulb which goes faulty. if you had sent me a pm i would have changed them no problem.which would have saved you the extra cost and i am 100% certain they are not as bright(which you state).out of the 100's i have sold i may of had 3 or 4 that have gone faulty.they have not just been fitted to jukes but to other vehicles as well.they have even been supplied to a customer in Canada with no problems.they have been that poplar i'm waiting for a new shipment (should be in next week)..IN fact i have the same shape bulb is in mine and they have been in at least 6 months or even longer and as in the pdf on the juke and nismo website.so i am very sorry for the problems you have encountered.Gadget2014-06-11 19:54:54
