So has anyone installed these before? I wouldn't even know where to start. As far as the electrical aspect. I'm pretty sure FatalFlash had something similar on his old RRS. But getting him to think pre 2012 RRS might be a lot to ask.
I'm on the road for the next few weeks so I won't be able to take photos, but I will say that the installation is very high quality. These are OEM lights designed specifically for the RRS so there's no comparison with the aftermarket. They are as bright as any LED daytime light on an Audi, Porsche, etc. It's only 4 LEDs per side, which goes well with the RRS aesthetic. Finally, it's integrated completely with the RRS -- they are on all the time except when the headlights kick on, when the DRLs turn off. Post #5 includes a link to the installation directions -- it's not something I would do myself. The dealer charged $375 to install.Looks nice, I've been contemplating getting some myself, but I was thinking of doing the install on my own. Might you have any additional close up pics of how they are mounted/connected etc...? And with that said, do they appear to be of a good quality (for that price they should be) and nice and bright?
I have a 2011 Z06 w/ the Z07 and Carbon Fiber package.I'd be interested in the detailed step by step as I'm sure others would be as well in the years to come.
On a side note, what kind of Z06 do you have? I have a 2007 and a 2008.
I'm also a huge DIY'er so I'm looking forward to getting these lights and putting them on!
Very nice, that's going to be a collectors version one day!I have a 2011 Z06 w/ the Z07 and Carbon Fiber package.
I have a wholesale account with a local land rover dealer. I'll see what I can get them for and let you all know.Very nice, that's going to be a collectors version one day!
On a side note, do we have any members here that are "in" with their parts manager and might work us a deal on these lights? And if someone has the install docs, please send me a PM and I'll reply with my email address to send it to as it might be too large to post here.
Received the LED's. Opened them up and started playing with it so I understand how to defeat the intended usage. They are designed to only light up when the vehicle is running, and when in a DRIVE gear. This is how most of the GM's I've had operated, and LR seems to be duplicating that process.
However, our Audi lights up the LED's during unlock, idling in park, etc. So it must not necessarily be US DOT regulations. Even when driving with the headlights on, the Audi's LED array stays lit, although a bit powered down. They only turn off when signals are applied on the side of the signal, which looks like a malfunction.
Anyway, here is what's in the kit, and a power demo to confirm my wiring theory. LR does NOT tell you what the wires do, just where to splice them. In fact, the yellow sticker on the LED wires say "NEVER CONNECT LIGHT WITHOUT DRIVER TO 12V. 12V SUPPLY WILL DESTROY LIGHT." Sounds omninous.
They are very bright, and have a power draw rating of 8.7 watts per array (stated on the LED). The picture is with my camera flash ON.

So $700 for about $20 worth of parts. Wow!!! now that's a serious return on investment. I can't believe they expect you to "splice" wires for that price. I would expect a better made kit that plugged into factory connectors for that price. What exactly makes these parts better then aftermarket?Anyway, here is what's in the kit, and a power demo to confirm my wiring theory.
