Upgrade on Headlights By clearcorners

Hey Guys,

I found something very interesting, It's upgraded F430 lights.
It uses LED and they can come with matte black and even factory color code.

Pair costs 3 grand. FAddict and somebody in Fchat did it themselves. so you can know what you've done worth 3grand.

LED PARK > 66 White LEDs :


Signal Light > 225 Amber LEDs :


Parking & Signal Lights >


Low beam :

F430 F1

Their principle is a "Core Exchange" and "Core Conversion" what means that you have to provide them your stock headlights in exchange for upgraded headlights or also they will upgrade directly your headlights : Tech Info > Core Exchange & Core Conversions

OOps! That makes it even more expensive then!

I liked the signal with flash and dim light of the lens on parking light.

I feel the car so out dated with it's yellowish parking light. can the H6W be changed to something white? only a bulb change not the LED. so that makes it a bit cured.

Best fix so far is the LED Strip solution that you guys have done.

I think I published on FC the latest version of my LED Strip which is based now on HyperFlux LED's and is very bright. So far, after many months, they still work very well. They can really be used as DRL's. But as HyperFlux LED's heat quite a bit, I had to glue an aluminium strip on the back to dissipate the heat. Also, it is vital to use a current driver providing the exact current needed by the strip whatever the battery voltage is. I will repost the entire thing back here with some updates

And when I see what you've posted here, there is still a margin of improvement on my LED Strip

Wow, this is so insanely cool, but 3k?!
I once had to open the headlights of a 575 SuperAmerica and that was a PIA but 3k seems a bit steep for a led conversion.
I'm still planning on opening them to get rid of the amber turn signal lens but I haven't found a clear lens yet (or someone to produce it).

Stef,

In case you are touching it again, don't forget signal light too. it is so cool to have LED signal light.

google some reviews on clearcorners. You'll find some product and customer service issues... they do look good, though.
