Very smart simple lines Jon, love the valance thumbs

Cain has already started on mine. Popped over the other day so he could place the brake vents which need to be as far out as cosmetics will allow, as I want overriders retained.

Cooperman, looks very good. Cannot see why this should bother oncoming drivers. Something to consider when my Nightbreakers say goodbye. Or perhaps before....

Just for a comparison I took my modern BMW with factory option LED headlamps to the same spot

This is Dipped



This is Full beam

Here we are, Unfortunately no nice pictures with landscape, it snows, rains and is very salty since a week here. That's why she stays in the basement garage.
But it's all about how the headlights look to her.
Of course, the classic H4 headlight is the best look, or even these old Lucas with the three rods.
But the look could be worse in my view. I post it because it's a deviation from Richard's car, narrow body and chrome rings with the headlights.

The light output is not writable. I am curious how it will be on the road at dusk. But everything has already been said here about that.
The lights probably still have to be adjusted exactly by a professional. I was now defensive in the alignment, so that nobody is dazzled.

BTW the DRL is still running when the dipped beam is switched on. But I don't think it's a problem. With high beam, the small lamps add up with full power.

Looks fine Heinz - maybe better with the chrome rims.

Must admit that the advice I gave you on DRL mode switching off on dipped beam was from sales pictures. In any case you may have noticed that the current draw from DRL alone is just 1 watt (24 watts on full power).

Regarding adjustment I wound the previously fitted ARV6 headlamps one full turn downwards as testing suggested they were too high. With the LED's I put them back to factory setting as a reference point. They seem to be spot on innocent

ETA: for the benefit of others the middle picture Heinz posted is DRL alone.

In combination with your black grill and Le mans overriders the black headlight ring looks very good as well, Richard.
I had thought how black LEDs would look like, but I didn't order it because the small LEDs would only stand out even more.

In the "LED bulbs vs LED headlights" discussion I found the below test quite informative... net net be very careful with H4 LED bulb replacement selection if you want to (risk?) that route...
https://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/blog/are-led-headlight-bulbs-the-brightest/

Main question for those going for the (car*) LED headlight is... what do you do when you travel abroad and need to change the dip direction or mask the headlight? (* AFAIK bike headlights don't do a directional dip, but are not car-legal... )

I'm sure bike headlamps do have directional dips Paul. I was sold a US spec Guzzi back in the 70's and that certainly dipped to the right.

Regarding travelling abroad with halogen or LED headlamps, it should only take a couple of minutes each side to swap to right hand dip units. A good investment if your abroad regularly.

Thaks Richard - not sure where I got that bikes had non-directional dipping (maybe it is in the US? for example these LEDs are inexpensive BUT dont seem to have a directional dip... https://www.amazon.com/Wisamic-Motorcycle-Headlight-Compatible-Fatboy-Black/dp/B01M63N6PJ )

Bike should have directional dips. When I have taken bikes to Europe or brought them back when we lived abroad changing the headlight was required for approval & licensing.
