( PIC ) LED Front Parking Lights installed

Huge Difference vs the old IMHO. Feels like the car is 10 years younger lol...

Here's a before & after picture:

Jimmy, What a difference and is something I should also do. What LED did you replace it with & did you need to flip the battery switch for ECU protection?

No need to flip the battery switch. Best to make the change with the lights and ignition in the off position.

Hey BluNart. The installation was surprisingly easy. I did shut down the battery during the process (though you don't really have to). The parking light bulb (Dipper) is inside your front fender, simply turn your wheel inwards and you can access to the cover panel, remove the panel; locate/remove the bulb, then a straight bulb swap and you are good to go.

You can also look into your owner's manual. I received these 2 LED bulbs from a company from Italy, they saw my website and sent me these samples just to try it out, and I am happy with the color / glare (Bright white with a tiny hint of blue). You might be able to find similar LED bulbs in the US. Just make sure the color is what you like and the right wattage.

Here's what the bulbs look like (OEM vs LED):


This IS a MUST-DO mod for any 360 in my opinion. I also LEDed my Dome Lights & License Plate Lights. Day & Night difference. Now still waiting for LED reverse bulbs, I will post them here later on.

Cheers!

Thanks! I had the 'dipper' in my hand last year to size it for a replacement but never swapped as I couldn't find a local supplier for the LED to compare. I'll have to search & order on-line as the yellowing is not preferred; any posts here or on another site that have the same or comparable bulb are welcomed...

The LED manufacture might have sent me an extra set, let me look for it. If I can find it, I will send them to you

Thanks Jimmy! If their good in your 360 they'll work out great in mine. The before/after photos show how much a change this simple mod makes to the 360 appearance.

Take note. LED bulbs are polarity sensitive. If it does not work on the first try. Remove the bulb and position in the opposite direction.

Blu, I found the extra set of LEDs, I tired to PM you via this forum but somehow I can't get the PM to work. Can you PM me your e-mail (hope it works on your end) or you can shoot me 1 to: [email protected]

Cheers and I am sure you will love it on your 360 as much as I do.

I believe that these are the bulbs for the front marker lights. BTW the manual says that the bulb holder pulls out -- it doesn't -- it needs a quarter turn first.

I replaced my LED parking lights this evening and I must say it is a huge improvement. It really updates the car giving it a more modern feel. It took all of 20 minutes working quite slow. I only ran into one problem, when this huge beetle flew into my garage and landed right where I was working. It is about as big as my hand and yes it fly's. It will make you run for your life and scream like a girl.

Thanks English Rebel for the ebay link. I bought them and they worked out quite well.

Jimmy,
I'm embarrassed how long it took for me to make the change after you generously provided the bulbs; my apology for also not posting sooner. It's obvious which bulb is changed in the photo and wow does it remove the yellow tint of the OEM bulbs and 'modernizes' the front parking lights. Such a simple change and what a difference.

Now only if a LED bulb had some magic to clean up the foggy headlamps...

Thanks again Jimmy!
