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
I have a 2004 Cayenne S. I just got it recently, interior lights have never worked. I checked the fuse and it was blown. It calls for a 20 amp fuse but the blown one in it was a 25 amp. I had the key in the ignition if I remember correctly and put the new 20 amp fuse in and everything came on. Side note, I noticed a weird glitch with the light above the rear passenger side door and the switch on the main map reading light. The interior lights had gone off and I turned the back on and the backlight above to passenger side door was very dim. I slid the switch on the overhead console for the main map light and the rear light came back to full strength. I found that odd. Everything then worked fine. I took the key out. Next time I put the key in, immediately heard the fuse blow. Any ideas on where to start?
I have recently left the US for France with my 2007 997.1 C4S. One of the (several) slight differences between a US and a FR 997 are the headlights. I have the Litronic Xenon headlights (round xenon lens above, 'regular' lamp below) but they are not marked with the E or e signifying homologation in the EU. So I am on the hunt for a pair of used EU-marked Xenon headlights in order to pass the homologation inspection. I have tried leboncoin.fr, passionauto.fr, jeanbuser.com, cupspirit.com, no luck.
Anyone have a spare pair of used EU 997 headlights laying around? :-) Or better yet, any advice on where to search next? I can get a pair of new ones from my local Porsche dealer but the pair will run me 2500€. A little dear just for an inspection, methinks.
Thanks in advance!
Is anyone familiar with the one-piece LED replacement headlights for the 986 Boxster. There are a number of them available on eBay from a variety of vendors, including xtrememotorcars and MK AUTOWORLD.
They claim to be a simple, no modification, swap.
I'm skeptical, but if it works, it would be an affordable and good-looking replacement solution.
