Wide-body Rear LEDs - Who wants them?

It looks like UrbanHotRod on 6SP has stepped up and fixed this so the thread will be back on 6SO tomorrow. Apparently they are going to move it to a "Group Buy" section. I'm not sure what that will look like, but I'll be looking for it.

That's a good thing! Seemed to have pissed a lot of people off! They may have lost a few members over this!

Hey - 6SO has put the thread back. They are still working on merging the last thread into the new one, but when it is finished, you'll find it here: http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/group-buys/302973-996-l-e-d-rear-tail-lights.html .

I think it would be prudent to keep this one going too, so I'll post updates in both places.

The thread has been re-imported (well. most of it anyway). Chuck made it sound like EBWorks was responsible for the total pooching of the thread because EBWorks isn't a sponsor any more. I wonder if they go back and delete all the threads people ever posted when they stop being sponsors?

I'd like to commit to the LED project please.

Delivery is Great Britain.

If you need anymore info or committment let me know.


Did you or anybody else post this on 911UK? If not I can post it on to see if more interest can be generated. It there is an existing thread I can also post to it to bring it back to the surface.

      Hi All
      Im trying to convert my rear lights on my Boxster S 2000 model to LED's.
      Have bought bulbs from a reputable supplier but they don't work in the stop lights or indicators.
      Reverse lights and tail lights, yes but not the stop or indicators.
      I know I need an LED compatible flasher relay which I havent bought yet.
      Have tested the bulbs and they work fine but are polarity incompatible, negative earth only which should be fine as so is the Boxster.
      Any suggestions?

      I recently bought some replacement halogen assemblies to replace my browned/burned headlights.  I'm going to use the halogens that are currently in the headlights, but am wondering what the best option is these days for HID, LED/Projector replacement.  Above all else, I don't want to melt my lenses, and I want to maintain the stock look of the car, cause ya know, it's gonna be a collectors edition one day ? The most recent topics I've seen are at least 4 years old...
      So far I've seen Pelican's Xenon/HID retrofit kit: https://www.pelicanparts.com/More_Info/STHIDH96000.htm?pn=ST-HID-H9-6000&SVSVSI=1054 and Pedro's Garage TechnoLite HID: http://pedrosgarage.com/Site_2/TechnoLite_HID.html

      Im working on a unique porsche project and as part of it im looking to use the current (>2016) generation 95B Macan LED HeadLights. 
      What im looking for is the Wiring Diagram from the service manual program, so i can trace what needs to be connected to where relative to my 997.1 wiring harness.
      Yes, im aware this will be difficult. Im not looking to just plug and play.
      I already have all the wiring for the 997.1 and 997.2 cars (and a few others)
      Can anyone help

      Hi all,
      I'm in the midst of designing a DRL setup for my 996.2 (which is a topic I recognize has been done to death). That said, I'm not a fan of LED light bars, and while I don't mind halos, this is a Porsche, not a BMW. Therefore, I'm taking inspiration from the Four Point Principle.
      I'm using 8x total Luxeon Star 10mm square LED blocks, neutral white, with 10mm square Carclo 10415 elliptical-pattern lenses, and a 350mA FlexBlock on each side. DRLs should be on the order of 400 lumen per side and 1500Cd at the center, so I'll be using slightly lower currents than the LEDs are made for. As soon as I get dimensions 1,2,3 in the attached image, or even better a damaged 996.2 headlight unit, I'll figure out heat sinking, but it will be relatively unimportant at 4W per side, 150C maximum junction temperature, and 100F approximate steady state temperature insight the HID housing (per Pedro's Garage).
      As far as wiring goes, here are my requirements:
      DRLs turn on with the engine DRLs turn off with the low beams The low beams can be turned on whether the engine is on or not.  
      There are several ways to do this, of course, and I think I've picked the easiest:
      1x Bosch relay with both NC and NO pins, connecting to 1x 928-610-511-00 relay carrier added to an open spot in the relay block Pin 30 connects to a fuse tap at A6 - Seat heater (switched on with ignition) Pin 85 connects to any conveniently-located bolt to chassis, possibly in the fuse box. TBD. Pin 86 connects to a fuse tap at A9 - Low Beam Right (switched on with headlights) Pin 87a is wired to the left and right FlexBlocks in parallel. Pin 87 is not necessary  
      The relays I have take about 150mA to switch, which *shouldn't* noticeably affect the low beams, but does put additional stress on the headlight switch. If that causes problems I might need to do the following instead:
      2x Bosch relays with NC/NO pins Pin 30-1 connects to A6 Pin 30-2 connects to D5 - Cigar lighter (always on) 85-1 splices into 85-2, connected to chassis ground 86-1 splices into 86-2, interrupting the YE/WH wire running from the light selector stalk before it splits to go to A9/A10/Canada DRL block 87A-1 is wired to left and right FlexBlocks as above 87-2 is wired to the other side of the YE/WH split  
      Thoughts? Anyone have input on headlight switch reliability or wiring plans?

      I have to admit that I have been lurking on this site for a couple of years now.  I purchased a 2002 996 a while back and had a lot of general questions.  It turns out a lot of people had similar questions so I never felt the need to post.  I owe lots of thanks to several members (THANKS!).  Fast forward a couple of years and I have enjoyed my 996 so much I went out and found a 987-1 (2005 Boxster Base, 2.7L, Manual, U.S., Silver with Black Top and Black Interior).  This is also a fun car. 
      Now for the question:
      I am considering upgrading the fog light assemblies and the amber side marker assemblies to aftermarket LED's.  I found on ebay a sale for both LED fog lights and both LED side markers from a company called REVi MotorWerks.  They claim that these are simple "plug and play" lights. I am pretty handy and do most of my own maintenance so I'm not afraid to tackle a job with medium difficulty but for what I'm paying I just want to plug them in.  Can anyone comment on whether or not these lights are worth the time, effort, and money.  I have read several posts from members that have done LED conversions and then end up with error codes because of voltage or current discrepancies.  I'm hoping that these newer aftermarket lights account for that in their circuitry.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.
