    Is it worth upgrading to Led

    Hi, new owner of a 2010 Touran 1.9 Bluemotion Match, I thought that the match models would have xenon lights but they seem like standard H7's I think, I was thinking of going down the route of H7 Leds with built in canbus and the same for front indicators, rear indicators, brake light and reverse light. On my previous 2001 car I had philips extreme vision installed on dipped and main and found them to be quite decent they were still working fine when I sold the car bulbs were over 5 years old. Looking for a good bright white light around 4000k, whilst coming back home from the sellers house on single lane country road the normal dipped lights seemed poor.

    Thanks in advance.

    Stick to incandescent bulbs, LED’s dazzle and don’t help driving, something is wrong with modern light design, how can blinding oncoming traffic be a good thing?

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
