    Hi Stef,
    Hope you are well.

    Hey StefVan, I am a new owner of a 2008 F430 in Australia. Just wondering if you could help me out with a bit of information regarding the Texa software as I own a mechanical business here and specialise in all types of mechanical repairs and performance work. I want to know if you think the Texa software is worth it and can do all the things i will need ie clutch replacement, E-diff bleeding etc or if you think there is something better, as i have been reading your post with interest and value your opinion.
    Any information would be much appreciated as we are 1200 miles from nears Ferrari Dealer.
    Thanks

    --- Continued from previous message ---

    But I'm always looking for something better :) Considering equal supply currents of "6W" and "7.5W" LED bulbs, it's evident that epistar leds cannot be forced to emit more light and stay in their safe temperature margins. So I'm now looking to get bulbs with cree leds on top, just as these you mentioned.



    I found a seller in UK who offers such bulbs:

    Pair Red 1156 380 BA15D 21W 5W 16W CREE Q5 12V 24V High Power LED Bulbs | eBay

    Please, can you tell me if these are the same you designed, or, if not, can you give directions where (ebay, for instance) I can buy them from?
    Thanks in advance!

    Kind Regards,
    Julian Lilov

    Hello, StefVan,

    My name is Julian Lilov. While searching the net for info of real-life performance of LED bulbs, I came across your project. I'm very impressed! I appreciate you are sharing the results! I followed the ebay links you supplied and bought samples of so-called "6W" and "7.5W" 1157 RED Epistar Bulbs (both with lenses) from Alan (AC-RC). I'm pleased with their quality and brightness. Interesting fact: the bulbs I bought have the same supply current of 188mA at 12.5V and almost equal brightness despite the different number of leds. They also heat up to same temperatures (max. 61degC measured with IR thermometer after 30min, ambient temp. was 13degC).
    These bulbs are practically identical in brightness to (new!) 21/5W filament bulbs when placed in BMW rear light clusters and are brighter, of course, when compared with used filament bulbs (several months of duty).

    Hi StefVan,

    My name is David Crandon. I came across your thread in Ferrarilife.com about your LED bulb testing and production. I can't begin to tell you how impressed I am with what you have done.

    As an optometrist, I am always interested in anything lighting related, so your comprehensive testing of all the specs of these bulbs is very interesting to me.

    I would like to know if the new LED's you are producing would be applicable to my use.


    I sent an email to your webpage, but I decided to contact you hear as well since I wasn't sure if you'd get the email since the webpage is still in construction.

    I sent the email to [email protected]

    Can you pick it up there? Or is there another email I should send it to? I can't put it hear because it includes a couple of pictures.

    Sincerely,

    David Crandon

    StefVan-

    I was hoping you could help me with two F430 issues, since you seem to be an F430 expert! I have purchased an iPod connection for my 2006 F430 and connected it- but I want to run it into the glove compartment. Any advice on where I should drill the hole?

    Second, the glove compartment door on my F430 needs to be adjusted. When closed, the right side is about 1.25 cm lower than the left. Very noticeable obviously. Do you know how to make the adjustment? Thanks!
