Re: Driving Lights opinions


Had the IPF 108s installed last week. After a stuff up at the shop (lights used on another vehicle that morning) Coldys arranged for there mobile installer to come to my place and fix up the lights. I have to say I am very impressed the installer (Dean) he turned up on time and did a great job on the lights. For the stuff up Coldys threw in a set of clear covers and a promotional bucket filled with Mothers car cleaning products. Great!

Haven’t been on the open road yet to test the lights, but they look good. Will post some photos when I get a chance.

For anyone looking for lights, bull/nudge bars, towbars and anything else to do with 4x4 I highly recommend Coldys at McGraths Hill. Very friendly, knowledgeable and professional service.

Coldys:
Unit 21, Calvert Rd
McGraths Hill Business Park
4577 2022

Re: Driving Lights opinions


All I can say is:

LET THERE BE LIGHT !!!

Picked up these 100watt Hella Rallye 1000's pencil beams for dirt cheap and think they compliment my Hella 181 spread beams nicely. Can't wait for the sun to go down to check out the light pattern. As I have always said, you can NEVER have too much light.

With all lights on, this gives me over 550watts of light shining down the road. Just hope the alternator can cope. emoticon

Very nice Brett and good choice of lights.

The alternator will cope just fine mate. I had more lights than that on my exy and it was fine.

Yeah but you never used them! emoticon

Ok Brett, you officially now have more lights than me. I don't know if your setup would be brighter than mine, though emoticon

I hope you ran separate wiring for them (even if they do still come on with the other set) - otherwise you'll be overloading the wiring (I guess the original fuse would've blow as soon as you turned them on to try them out if you had used the original circuit)...

Here are the specs of the alternator from the service manual.
Image

550W @ 13.5V is just short of 41Amps.
Under normal conditions, the alternator will cope, but anything under about 1,500rpm I would say there will not be enough charge to cope and the shortfall will be drained from the battery.

So just be carefull how much low-rev crawling or idling you do with all lights a-blazin'

Re: Driving Lights opinions


Rich - yeah mate. I have run a seperate fused relay system for each set, with an independent switch as well. That now gives me 4 bright red led switches to choose from.

I tried them out last night to align them properly and what can I say, "WOW". They shoot a mile down the road and the lower ones give excellent lighting on the side of the road.

I will post pics tonight.

Re: Driving Lights opinions


 I have finally tested out the new Hellas and although the pictures don't do them justice, the light output is amazing.

Low Beam on bitumen:

The warning barrier at the end of the bitumen road was 650 metres away.

Low Beam on dirt:

The trees at the end of the dirt track were 450 metres away.

Not bad, hey. emoticon

Very impressive Brett.

One question: Do you get much vibration of the spotties when you're driving? Mine used to drive me mad when they'd vibrate and shake all over the place no matter how tight I had them secured in place to the nudge.
