Re: My 500C 1.2 esseesse

What LEDs did you use ? The new Osram legal LEDs ? And is the light any good?

Re: My 500C 1.2 esseesse

No, I went for Auxito.

For the Low beams I took the C7 series: https://auxito.com/products/dd-c7-h7
Advantage is, you can rotate them step-less and so find the optimum light output / pattern. Due to the lens-design the cut-off stays constant. And they are so small that the rear covers of the lamp can be still used without modifications.

For the high beams I decided for the M3 series: https://auxito.com/products/dd-m3-h7 I liked them as they are all silver und so fit good into the reflektor no causing dark spots when switched off. The canīt be adjusted stepless and they are little bigger.

The light output of both is very good (far better than the standard halogens) and the price is reasonable.

A friend bought for his Abarth the Gen2 Osram LEDs and he was not so happy. One thing is, you can install them only in one position and so you can not find the optimum position for lens lamps. Another problem, they are so big, that you need to cut the rear lamp cover. And they are not permitted for the Fiat 500 / 595, too, even they are so expensive.

Re: My 500C 1.2 esseesse

I ordered the C7 and will check them out. Your description and pics sound promising. Thanks for sharing the details.
For the high beams I won't bother at the moment. I can hardly use them most of the time anyway.

That winter set of tires looks great. Are those from a Barchetta?
