I think most of it is good alignment on the max height allowed to see up the road , it doesn't matter how bright the bulbs are if they're pointing down you aren't going to see Jack...
Abzy did fit HID but didn't follow up with any product links or pics .
H7 LED are probably the way forward but there are so many out there I wouldn't know where to begin .
Both the above HID and LED are technically illegal to fit in place of halogen but often pass MOT anyway if not too blue .
Consider an 'E' marked performance halogen with a high pressure Xenon gas fill such as Ring Xenon 130%.
They will always be yellow @ 3700K , father is using some E13 marked 5000K , probably the whitest E marked H7's .
I wish people would use a lower suitable viscosity oil to cure these poor cold gear changes .
Have the firmware updates ceased to be available now? I checked my car and I am on Firmware version 5.5.1 I think. When I go to the links on this thread all I get when I click on the i40 tourer is a message saying I need to go to a dealer. Bit of a bummer as the nearest one is 20 miles away.
Hi Newbie here. I know there has been discussion on the poor headlamps on the i40 before and I am afraid this has been a long standing complaint I have with the car.
My car is fitted with the standard headlamp (halogen) and I wondered if it is possible to buy a couple of used Xenon units from an auction site or breakers. They expensive even used so I thought I would come on here first and check that it is possible to fit a Xenon unit in place of a standard unit. Is there more to it than this?
In summary regarding my i40 (13 plate bought in 14) the dealer has been useless in finding a solution for me. Things are so bad I am reluctant to drive the car in the dark as the dipped beam is non existent and I barely get a dull yellowish glow from the front. There's no beam pattern and I generally have to drive on full beam which I don't like doing for obvious reasons. If I can't use full beam I have to use the front fogs which offer a bit better illumination.
If anyone has found a solution to the headlamp situation I would love to hear. It's a shame as apart from the 1st gear change in the cold I love the car.
Yes no problem , iv disconnected many times without an issue.
where did you source yours , I couldn't find anywhere other than main dealer unless I was prepared to wait at least a couple of days.
needed urgently so paid the price. Although once your original 2 yr warrenty is out Hyundai supply with a 3 yr warrenty.
