Just giving you some pictures here. Here's my current set-up with a pair of 80 Series Lamps:

This is what they can achieve (one spot, one drive). These photos are completely unaltered and with identical settings. For comparison, my D3 has the full xenon adaptive lighting system which already produces a total of ~9400 raw lumens:

Nearly as bright!? Shocked I don't have specific figures but they'll be brighter than that, and far higher candela. Thumbs Up Freelander 2 2007 TD4 Manual HSE Tambora Flame

If anyone wants any bulbs it's best to sign up now to ensure it would be cost effective (re numbers and postage).

Nearly got the 10 for the horns, so one more and we'd be there.

Last call for horns is today (or tomorrow morning in practice, but please be ready to pay ASAP if so). Bulbs and wipers best done now also.

Lamps are waiting in case we can get 5 so plenty of time for them.

Still waiting on a few payments and communications at present, so there's still time for last minute sign-ups so long as you're ready to pay swiftly, guys. Thumbs Up Freelander 2 2007 TD4 Manual HSE Tambora Flame

Final deadline for any remaining payments and corresponence is now 12 noon tomorrow. After that time I'll have to move on with what we've got. If you still want to participate please, please do get in touch because I don't want anyone to miss out. Sad

Anyone wishing to join until then is welcome as long as they can pay in that timescale also. Thumbs Up Freelander 2 2007 TD4 Manual HSE Tambora Flame

Hi all,

Order now placed and I'm expecting it to arrive here by Friday if not tomorrow. Then I shall get it all on its way to you as quickly as I can.

The group buy is currently still open; I'll be doing a second batch with lamps when it ends on Sunday 3rd April, so can still take more orders for bullbs, wipers and horns for then (horns @ 32.50 unless we can get another 10 pairs+). Above all, it would be great if we could reach the 5 pairs of lamps.

Ive just seen this and Im probably too late - Im interested in the bulbs what exactly is on offer here are the bulbs i pairs?
Ive a face lifted 2011 spec on halogens, what do i need to improve the woeful performance?
I've not come across PIAA before, whats the longevity of the bulbs like?

No, you're in plenty of time for the second lot. Smile

These PIAA bulbs have the marks of performance bulbs, but unlike others they don't suffer such awful life (cheap, bright, long lasting - you can pick any two when it comes to bulbs). I recommend the Xtreme White Plus bulbs as the best offering, and they offer the highest colour temperature if that is important to you. All prices are for pairs. Thumbs Up

When you say face lifted 2011 spec, do you mean facelifted from 2011 to 2013, or just standard 2011? 2011 spec is H11s and H7s; 2013 is just a single pair of HB3s. Wink

Of course, I would recommend driving lamps for the best possible lighting upgrade because beam pattern is everything!

my cars Nov 2010 - the one with the face lifted grill unfortunately with halogens
so what are you recommending? the extreme white plus?
how much is 2 sets?
As regards Driving lamps I agree but need to look at what can be achieved as the Freelander front end isn't driving lamp friendly

The Xreme White Plus are the best offering, yes. The Night Techs are a good compromise if you don't want to spend as much, but the Xtreme Whites are the best performing ones in H7 and H11 fitment.

Two pairs in H7 and H11 fitment would be 92.05 plus 8 P&P.

The XT lamps are fairly mounting friendly if you want to look into that.

Had another sign-up for lamps, so another two pairs would be all that's needed to get the lower price. Anyone sitting on the fence that I can persuade? Bow down

Last chance to sign-up for any items this weekend. Thumbs Up Freelander 2 2007 TD4 Manual HSE Tambora Flame
