Hi All.

Wondering if anyone has upgraded their exterior parking, signalling and license plate lights to LEDs. And where did they purchase from. Was it just a simple plug and play? Also is there a good driving/fog light lens upgrade to our 928s?

Thanks.
Wyman.

I have not done it yet but plenty of people have. However it is not plug and play as I understand it - you need to put resistors in the circuits or the LEDs trigger the central warning system which assumes a certain resistance from the standard bulbs. LEDs have a much lower resistance.

I just found v12s.com. They cater to Jags and other v12 cars, but also some items for Porsches. LED lighting and electric fans. They are in New Hampshire.

The LED kits are guaranteed for life I think. They also come with a relay so I am guessing they take care of the low voltage sensing issue.

Hope this helps.

Also check out Jäger engineering in Canada. I bought some internal LEDs and dash light from him. Worked out great.

I believe that there is a kit that was posted on RL, I don't know if it is through Paul or someone else but if you find it, post the link to the actual kit site in the tips area for us here.
