Jaguar S-Type 1964
 Hi Gil, Just to let you know I found the legend strip lights, replaced them with your bulbs, and now have a very clearly light legend strip. When I investigated, following your e-mail, the centre bulb was missing, and the outer two had failed! So, thanks for your clear instructions on how to find the difficult to spot bulbs. I attended a Classic Car show last Sunday, and got chatting to a fellow “S” type owner, and he didn’t know about the legend strip bulbs either! Regards, Richard Hinds Morgan Hi Gil, As predicted the run home from the club meeting was on very dark roads,the latest version of LED bulbs you sent me are truly fantastic! Dipped beam cut-off was really sharp,but still with plenty of right hand kerb illumination,and the main beam is like a searchlight flooding the road ahead. The other important advantage is the instant change from dip to main and back again,with no light-up time lag that you get with filament bulbs.

Hi Gil,

Just wanted to let you know that the installation of the LED bulbs and electronic flasher went swimmingly! Also the diode bridge worked 1st time out so still have the dash display.

Very impressed with the brightness of both the front and rear lights and the ability to have orange indicators at the front!

Thanks again for your help. 

Regards,  Laurence

Jaguar XJS

Hi Gil

 Just a quick note to let you know that the replacement LEDS for our XJ-S have arrived today.

 I have installed the DRLs and they are working a treat, they certainly save having to have the main lights on all the time.

The dashboard has never looked better. Best Regards Carl Sweden Gil, I finally managed to install the kit on my MGA (not that it was all that difficult) and it seems to be a winner! I especially like the fact that the difference between the running and brake light is significantly greater than the 1157 incandescent bulbs. Also the larger lit area of the led makes them more noticeable. Regards, Jerry Jesion

Jaguar XJS 1988 Gil, Thank you for the excellent products, service and really fast shipping to the States. I installed the green LED kit in my '88 XJS and I could not believe what a tremendous difference it makes. I can actually see the directional flashers in daylight...and read all of the instruments at night very vividly. We have owned this XJS since 1994 and we were never happy with the standard instrument lighting levels. Thanks for the great effort to help improve our classics!!!

1973 MGB GT Having the daytime running lights fitted on the car for the past year now I have to admit that driving without them is really not an option - quite truthfully if I drive the car without them I feel quite vulnerable! – small, dark green cars on today’s roads don’t seem to stand a chance and I’m sure more than once they have prevented a potential collision with other vehicles leaping out of junctions etc. in front of the MG. Sakina, Stowmarket. Pete Gerity, (USA) Triumph TR3

Hello Gil, just fitted your new LED upgrade kit to all 3 rear lights
Yes very pleased with the result. John Guernsey Lanchester Hi Gil, Those BA9ES dash bulbs are good - they have transformed the visibility of the instruments after dark! Philip 22nd June 2016.

Hello Gil
Just to let you know that I have successfully installed the DLR and other bulbs on my TR.

The DLR lightS are very bright and will make driving safer.

1973 Triumph Stag

Dear Gil, Ive added the resistor to my Stag warning light cluster that we discussed and I took the car out in both daylight and dark and the fitting of Led;s is a great improvement. I;ll be back shortly for some more Led;s for the running lights.Thank you for your service and the detail given me over the phone. Duncan Mac< Skye>

Classic Mini Hi Gil, a name from the past!! Sorry for this "late" email. It has taken me a long time to get around to fitting the sounder not least because my flasher unit was buried deep behind a non standard (but very nice) dash and which had to come out!! However now fitted and does the job brilliantly, many thanks. Regards Cliff Ayre Triumph TR3A.
I've fitted the upgrade to the rear lights and the LED bulbs into the instrument panel. The increase in brightness is incredible. Thank you for the prompt delivery too.
Alan Jone, Twickenham.

Jaguar XK120

I must tell you how pleased I am with the LED upgrade bulbs you sent. I fitted one, and the difference between it and the old yellow-toned incandescent bulb was like night and day! With them both installed the light emitted is a really brilliant white, and interestingly, does not suffer at all from the flickering I got with the old bulbs at low revs.

Rolls Royce Silver Shadow


Gil,


Last Saturday the LED stop/tail lights, blade marker lights and 2 interior lights were fitted to my 1975 Silver Shadow.

I am so pleased with the results.  I will gradually be updating the rest of the car when the opportunities arise.

Thank you so much for supplying some excellent products.

You have embraced the philosophy of Sir Frederick Henry Royce to the letter and it is therefore appropriate to fit your products to my car.

As the great man said "Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, design it".

Kind regards

Hello Gil,  All installed and working tickety-boo. The brake lights are really quite startling - that should keep the tail-gaters at bay.  Many thanks,  Robert

Hi Gil,
I have installed the stop/brake light units in my TR3A, easy and a fantastic kit, I can now reverse into my garage with just the side lights on!
Mike,

1936 Riley Lynx

Gil,  I have fitted your BA15D headlight bulbs in my 1936 Riley Lynx and they have surpassed my expectations.  They give a really white, bright light and best of all, my dynamo is more than up to the task of feeding them.  I would unreservedly recommend them to anyone who wants to drive at night safely  Many Thanks  John Healey

 Hi Gil,
The white opticell lamp unit you sent is absolutely brilliant - in both senses! Perfect solution - well done.

Classic Mini Cooper
Hi Gil-
Just wanted to let you know I received the new sounder earlier this week, and just installed it into the Cooper, and it works awesomely.
I just wired it into the signal indicator lamp in the center binnacle, since I had already wired the diodes into that, then stuck it to the inner wall of the plastic binnacle, and it resonates into the interior perfectly. Haven't had her out on the road yet, but I'm sure the audible will be very obvious as I can tell its much louder than the original flasher relay.
Since you said you had re-designed these, just wanted to let you know how it worked out, two thumbs up!

Much thanks again for all your help!

Regards,
Lou

Hi Gil

 Just to let you know, I fitted the new headlights and sidelights to my R107 SL on Christmas eve and they are just brilliant.  They have transformed my night time driving and I find myself being less dazzled by the oncoming headlights of modern cars.  Wish I had bought some sooner!  I will spread the word.

Hi Gil
 
The lights arrived yesterday.  I am very pleased with them.
 
The festoon bulbs have replaced the interior lights (which had earlier versions of cool white LED’s in them)
The warm white bulbs are terrific.  They look original while providing a much brighter light.

Triumph Stag

Dear Mr. Keane, I have fitted the Stag dashboard lights and the tail/stop lights and they really are brilliant in every way. The instruments are transformed. Getting the old green covers out (most of which were actually OK) was a bit of a game but with the right type of pliers and a firm hand it is not too difficult. The clock is not as bright as the others but I suspect that there is something inside which is diffusing the light. It is a Kienzle (orig. equipt.) and not Lucas. I will have a crack at it with said pliers when I get a moment. I am sure it isn't your bulb! 	Rather stupidly I asked you for the wrong sidelight bulbs: mine are the smaller, pencil diameter, type which I see in your Stag brochure are 233 High Power COB. Please could you send me a couple? I will ring you to give you my card number. I will keep the 207 Warm white bulbs as I see that they do for the numberplate lights (of which I have two). I actually tried one in a front indicator and it worked well but your brochure suggests I need to change/add a relay and I don't want to do any damage. Perhaps we can discuss this when I ring.     With best wishes and thanks for something that really does do what it says on the tin, Simon

I can now see my instruments. Thanks very much!

Jaguar E Type

Hi Gil

Finally got my E-Type home to France and just about to start finishing her off for the summer season.
I love the lightning improvement, especially the headlights.. Much brighter than before...
The dashboard lights stand out a lot better too, as does the interior light.

Nick M-D, France.

Citroen 2CV

Hi Gil,

I bought your 233 dashlight bulbs for my ancient Citroen 2CV and in bright sunlight installed just one to compare. In the sunlight the original bulb only just looked as if it was on with nothing more than a glow whilst on the other side of the car the LED bulb was showing a bright, clear, white light. I'm very pleased, now to order 2 for the rear position lights just need to find the correct type then order.

Bond Minicar

Good morning, Gil,
You may remember me:  I turned up unannounced last month, to return some BPF LED bulbs which gave too high a main beam, and I then bought instead a pair of LED upgrades that fit H4 housings - and therefore a pair of Wipac 7” lamps, to take them.

The combination is excellent:  a brilliant and well-focused spread of light, both on dip and on main beam. I have now succeeded in improving the lighting, within the 90W output of the Dynastart on my 1965 Bond Minicar.

The lights arrived very quickly and even an incompetent of my calibre, three quarters of a century old and with a right wrist held together with titanium, managed to fit them without too much difficulty. They are very much brighter as you can see from the photographs taken after doing one side.

Hello Gil,
I finally finished installing the bulbs in my Jag. As you can see they look wonderful!

Please feel free to use these pictures as you wish.
I'm sure I'll be in touch in the future, and I'll tell my friends about your products.

Good news on all fronts, Gil, in that not only did the under-noted replacement bulb arrive safely today but all the other lights and bulbs were duly installed by my engineer and the desired improvement in all lights both external and internal has been achieved!

Fantastic! The quickest and easiest upgrade I made in a long time! Specially like the side lights, now daytime running lights, and the tail/brake lights, amazing. And I now have a car alarm/immobiliser for around £20.00.
Thanks again, I'll have another look at the website and leaflet and will probably be back soon for more!
Kind regards,
Mark.

Bristol 410
Hi Gil,
Thanks for the time you gave me last week, and also for remembering to send me the tape.  In the meantime, all the lighting mods have been completed, and I must say they are a great success.  If anything, the daylight running lights rather show up the inadequacy of the headlamps in general, but then, at my age, I prefer to do most of my driving during daylight hours.
I will spread the word.......
Regards,
Tim

Triumph TR7
Hi Gil.

 Lamps arrived , in the car & working well.  They should easily get me through scrutineering when I compete @ the Philip Island track here in Victoria on the 25th  of this month  and warn those behind me on the track when I am braking.


Thanks & regards

Hello Gil,   have just some experience with fitting HID conversions to E Types, perhaps should be helpfull for you.  It´s no problem with E Types S2 and S3. Unfortunately for S1 E Types is too short the wiring from bulb -  when correct should be approx 1 feet long-see attached pictures.  Is possible to supply in this correct lenght ?    Best regards  Vladimir

Hello Vladimir. Some time ago the factory made some extension leads for me to solve this problem. They are on their long holiday until the end of February, but I will put some pressure on them to make some more of these as I have none left. Meanwhile, as long as you use good quality wire and waterproof heat shrink, the performance of the lighting will not be affected by extending these cables.
    I will send the email to the factory today and it will be waiting for them on their return. Assuming they say "yes" will order a quantity and send you some as soon as I ge them.
    Best regards,
    Gil.

N.B. HID Extension leads now on the website in the Classic Cars section.


Jaguar E Type
Hej Gil.
I have finally installed the LEDs in my instruments. It took really a lot of fiddeling to get to the lampholders in the Speedometer.
I could only reach the left lampholder in the Revcounter, the steeringcolumn fauled the accsess.
However it looks real good when I tested them in tonights evening driving.
The picture is not so good.
Best Regards

Morgan
Hi Gil,

        Thank you very much for the latest version of sidelight/running light LED's.

You're right,they're very impressive,I'm going to wire them so they come on with the ignition on/engine running,but no headlights on for daylight driving.

Then,off when the engine's off.But on again when the headlights are on and the engine is running.

I think I've just confused myself,so apologies if the proposed mods don't add up!(Need to do a logic ladder for that!)

Please see attached photo of the front running lights in action,in the gloom of the barn.

Also the recent additions of your reversing light blaster beam,plus another with your red stop light bulb in a clear glass lamp to act as a rear foglight.

Best regards,

                  Mike

Morris Minor Traveller

Hi Gil, Many thanks for sending the stop/tail light bulbs for my wife's Morris Minor Traveller, excellent service. I fitted them today and I'm impressed by the extra brightness although I have yet see what they look like at night, I've only checked them in the garage. Although not exactly cheap you get what you pay for and I wanted extra brightness without adding extra lights. I will most likely be getting another pair for my Traveller.  Would you kind enough to inform me which would be the best side light bulbs to use for  brightness in the later type Traveller with separate side light directly underneath the indicator, stock bulb is BA9s I think.  Many thanks in advance,  Regards,  Martyn

E Type Replica
Dear Gil,
a few weeks ago I spoke to you about the dashboards lights on my replica 'E' Type Jaguar.
The dash panel came from a Series 1 Jaguar XJ6, and the lights were poor. You asked me to send a photo.
Easier said than done!
I have taken some pictures, not very good I am afraid, but at present they are the best I can do. I will try and take some better ones later.
The first one shows both the centre console and Speedo and Tacho. The steering wheel got in the way, but you can see that the tacho has not got the better lights.
The other 2 show the centre console only.
I hope that they are of some use to you.
Brilliant product (excuse the pun).
Best wishes
Trevor


Sunbeam Alpine
Good afternoon Gil.
 
I trust you've been enjoying yourself in the garden today..........
 
I took some pics of the car last night and have enclosed a few for you. I'm sorry that the car had to be in the garage in view of the weather but even there I think that the photos without flash show up the difference very clearly between the original sidelights and the LEDs.
 
There's also one with the hazard lights but unfortunately it's not possible to show a comparison for them as you know.
 
I hope they will be of some use to you. 
 
I can only thank you again for all your help. I'm absolutely delighted with the new lighting.
 
Kind regards.

Triumph TR6

Hi Gil,

I eventually got around to fitting your bulbs in my TR6 and they made an amazing improvement. I changed the speedo but not the rev counter to show the difference and have attached the photos. The speedo looks fantastic!!!!

I did have one LED which didn’t work. I don’t know why - it looks OK and undamaged. Could you please check it out if I return it?

I also want to order some more from you and will do that in a couple of days.

Thanks again from a well impressed customer!!

     Kind Regards,

Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II
 Just to say The bulbs arrived last Monday. Fitted on the same day.  They are great the tail light is as bright as the old brake and the brake much brighter.  If its ok with you I will inform the RREC  Rolls Royce club.
 Do you do front side lights for the Rolls.
 I also have a 1998 XJ8.  Do you do front side lights for that ?   I am guessing no as they are made by Jaguar or so it says in the book.

Re dash lighting -
Brilliant! (pardon the pun).  So much brighter than the old ones.

1966 S Type Jaguar
Hello Gil,

The bulb package was received yesterday. I couldn't wait to start the replacement, so even though it was barely above freezing, this morning I changed the three interior lights on the 3.8S with the 36mm LEDs. They look great. I'll wait until we get a warm spell before tackling the instrument lights. 

Thank you and best wishes for the holiday season,
-Robert Silvestri Connecticut, USA.

Rolls Royce Silver Shadow

Hi Gil,

 I’ve attached photos of the dash before and after the new bulbs were put in.  Not the greatest pics sorry- the before pic you can hardly see the gauges, which was pretty true in reality as well!  Much better with the new bulbs.

 

Thanks and kind regards,
