Can anyone recommend upgrades for headlights & sidelights please.

Am thinking LED or has anyone tried CREE?

Saw some on a 928 from Woodypeck on YouTube - have emailed them to see if they supply for 993s

Thanks

Yep I have those as main beam lamps and on the fog lamps, on my 993 and they are a great improvement, my car has litronics , but as you know they are only on the dipped beam, as it was illegal to have HID's on main beam in those days. So over all I am quite happy with my lighting.

David - where did you get your Cree headlights?

Have done the sidelights - much improved. Now need to sort headlights as they are rather yellow & dull in comparison!

Thanks David - the Woodypeck ones sent to me don't seem to fit - must have ordered wrong ones.

Which ones did you order?
