Oooh, they're rather nice.
How does the £211 compare to the cost of new Suzuki ones.
I struggled to read the reviews :silly:

I've only seen these on ebay:

Jimny Wide Sierra JB23/JB33/JB43/JB53 1998+ R8 HEADLIGHT LED Amber Black SUZUKI
Completed

They don't ship to the Philippines.....don't know about Iceland.

Either way, I think I like yours better.

I started out with nothing & still have most of it left

I've only seen the aliexpress ones but these ones are really nice. Maybe ship to a friend who lives in a country that they ship to and then get your friend to ship it to iceland?

I can't see these being better than a normal bulb for headlamp duties unless they are of the same cree types as light bars etc, then if they are they will be too bright for headlamps and blind any poor beggar coming the other way!

Just get Osram Night Breaker bulbs of similar.

It's sound deadening. In the wrong place though. Needs to be on the fire wall to keep the sound out of the cabin.

Just bought these headlights and although they look great on car, its only chinese crap exactly what I have expected. First of all it comes without instruction manual. It comes only with external CANbus (you dont really need it) and some pair of plastic rings (later on). Finish on the plastic parts is pretty bad. And one headlight has been damaged. Which I already knew from ebay seller. Sadly it was last pair. So he repaired it and he gave me refund 10% (52 bucks). But when package finally came, I have realized the other headlight was damaged too :angry: It was cracked on the side. Nevermind. I have put them on my car. Turn signals are ok (they have load effect, and it looks really cool) and DLR ring aswell. And here comes the worst part. Socket for the LED bulb is complete mess. H4 bulb doesnt fit (they note this type of socket on the upper side), neither H7. Both bulbs are too big for that socket. And there is no wire which holds the bulb in place. Instead you have some stupid plastic ring. After some while I have figured it out and tightened H7 bulbs (yes H7 fits best, but still not how it should be) inside headlights sockets. They hold weird and I dont know if they aim correctly. Upon headlight adjustment we were able to adjust left side, but right beam was complete mess. Then we have realized there is something wrong with that bulb. I dont know what happened on my way to service station, but right bulb is now not so bright as it should be (yes I have tried more than one bulb) and it blocks high beam. Need to figure it out, but right now Im driving with only one bulb and Im really pissed off. So I warn you, stay away from these crappy headlamps from ebay/aliexpress. Sorry for my english. Cheers
