Hi here, I'm new to the Cayman forum, picking up my 987.2 Cayman S next saturday.

 

I used to have an 97 Boxster S and fitted a Hids4u kit - has anyone tried these recently?

 

They were excellent on the boxster for the 3 years I had it, so am looking to do dip and main at the same time.

Pretty simple to fit, no error codes and could actually see where I was going! No issues at MOT time either.

 

Any experiences on here?

LATEST UPDATE,  Over the last couple of weeks, I've spent some time experimenting with various IED bulb options. here are my conclusions. these , I emphasise are my own findings are these maybe d

Received my LED dip beams this morning... UK supplier so only took 3 days delivery.   Doddle to fit & much brighter white look.   Will test them out properly when it's dark!

Exact same as mine, very very good - considerably better than standard halogens. You will be impressed!   Tom

Welcome! :welcome:

I am looking at doing a conversion my 996, quite a few people have recommended the RetroFitSource, they sell the Morimoto kits which are supposed to be pretty good quality.

I read on one of the novsight website pages that aftermarket LED's are not legal in the UK either, similar to HID's.

 

Wonder if thats accurate?

 

These look good if they are legal (and fit).

Might as well fit HID's in that case!

They fit. Getting the retaining clips on is a bit tricky, otherwise no fitting problems and no codes.

 

I wouldn't worry about the legality.

I have bitten the 'dodgy' bullet and fitted the 5500 lumens stealth Hids4U kit. Pretty straightforward to filt, plenty of space in the headlight assembly.

 

Very sharp beam cut off, nobody has flashed me yet (oo-er) so all good. Its a 10 minute job to pop the standard bulbs back in once a year for MOT time.

 

Just seemed like a bit too much of a faff fitting questionable quality LED's and as I already had had a good experience of Hids4U, the rebel in me thought just go for it!

 

In the meantime I can see where I am going and can always swap to LED's once they have a better and more predictable track record.

Going to do the same as these LEDs aren’t cutting it! Are the 5500 lumens stealth kits the 450% brighter ones?

Allegedly 450%.

 

Definately a lot brighter, especially when viewed against a halogen unit.

 

They have a really sharp beam cutoff. I'm sure there are thousands of people running round with these Hid's so not too worried about a pull. :)

Thanks Andy, I think I’ll give them a try 👌

The units are pretty easy to fit inside the lamp pod. I used some chunky self adnesive velcro to hold the various bit and pieces of hardware tidily in place.

 

I purchased mine from Auto Bulbs Direct as Hids4U didn't have stock.
