    Bellow is a small editorial of the kit.

    The bulbs themselves house the newest LED tech available in the market by Philips, the lumileds ZE S which are suppose to mimic the lighting output and position of stock Halogen bulbs. This element helps provide a proper beam pattern with minimum glare.

    Installation is quite easy and what makes this particular model great is that the heat sink is unscrewable and therefore enables fitment of the stock dust cap. Some kits out there do not have that feature and require making a custom dust cap to seal the headlamp assembly.

    The drivers are waterproof and quite small so they only require a zip tie to be attached soemwhere in the engine compartment.
    P.S on a side note, because I wanted to have DLR's on my car, it is recommended to buy the H4 CANBUS module which is basically a resistor to dim down the DLR's since they run on the high beams.

    Here's the Low Beam pattern next to the stock Halogens (Osram made).
    The cut-off line line is quite good and mimics the beam pattern of the Halogens.

    High beam bellow, again with proper beam pattern diffusion. Quite satisfied considering the affordable price.

    Installation is quite easy (plug and play) took about 30mins to get the harness properly placed in the engine compartment. Here is the right Side.

    Would you be able to provide me with the item number for both the lights and the drivers?

    Also, did you have any issues with dust or water passing through even if the dust cap seems to fit?

    Thanks!

    Well it seems the exact design you're looking for aren't offered anymore but instead they have what they call the "T2" version which seems to have a larger heat sink, look em up on Amazon. As for the Drivers, they come with it included. You will need a CANBUS module (sold separately) Amazon to have the H4's work for DRL (Daylight Driving lights). The Dust cap fits snug and seals them from dust and water.

    I actually just tried fitting the T2 and they won’t allow the dust cap to be put in place. Kind of sucks because finding a LED conversion kit is not easy for the Micra. I might have to abandon the project.

    Thanks!

    If you can unscrew the heatsink, then you should be able to install them without the heatsink then you just fit the dust cap over the threaded part of the LED shaft after-which you can re-screw the heatsink on.

    The T2 doesn't have the unscrewable heat sink. It has the ability to turn inside the headlight housing to have a different light cut off, that's it...

    Thanks again!

    Seems like they get pretty good reviews on eBay, but who knows for sure...

    You should buy them and let the rest of us know how they are.

    You could also check out the Canadian Philips site or the Canadian Philips store on Amazon.

    The Cougar Moto ones that I've had installed since last March have been awesome - Easily the best LED headlights I've ever used and definitely worth a look IMO.
