Greetings from Columbus Ohio USA. Proud new owner of an 02, SW. High miles but seems well maintained. Got from a dealership. Coming from an 06 Burg 400. Looking forward to sharing experience, reading posts and chat w everyone. Questions about upgrades to the headlamps. They seem so dim and yellow even with purchasing new bulbs. Would Leds fit?

Greetings!

No doubt those who know will be forthcoming with the information you seek but there are many threads here about changing bulbs and so on so you might like to spend a little time trawling with the use of our Search facility.
Starting from the Home Page often produces Forum-wide results.

No doubt some have fitted LED's as replacements for OE bulbs and they going to say they're brilliant however they perform. Rather like those that were fitting HID kits a few years ago and saying pretty much the same.

I replaced the ageing OE bulbs in my Silver Wing with Osram Nightbreakers a couple of years before I sold it and they were a great improvement. Mainly because I chose bulbs specifically recommended for motorcycle/maxi scooter use. Osram have produced better and improved versions since then, as I get regular emails from the automotive lighting specialists I bought them from.


I have full LED lights in my Forza 300 including the mirrors, and after more than two and a half years of ownership I still don't have an opinion, they're just lights.

Welcome aboard the board grasshopper. There was a recent post (past couple of weeks) from a new member about his LED headlight upgrade modification ... use the "Search" function and read all about it!

I will troll around and look for those. Just concerned about the wire clip clearance with the large base with midst LED Kits.
