2019
Last year I promised you that I would eventually be able to deliver a new range of radically improved LED upgrade bulbs to replace the old BPF ones. At last I now have them in H4, BA15D, BA15S, P45T, P36T and P36s. I am testing BA21D and BA20D. Some of the improvements are groundbreaking as we have been able to pioneer the use of some rather special LED chips never before used in automotive headlights. An unexpected bonus is that the independent testing has gone so well that we can push the boundaries by giving a 5 yr warranty with these new bulbs. Nobody has ever been able to go beyond 2yrs for this category before, so I am delighted.

Every now and then in this business a clear and important breakthrough is achieved. A few years ago, I succeeded (after 2 years of struggle) in getting electronic flasher relays made which will work with standard or LED bulbs and making a great deal of flexibility possible. Then I was able to develop a nice loud sounder to put back the noise that silent electronic relays take away and to save us all from buzzers. Now, after two years of intense effort, the cars that are difficult to upgrade to the brighter and sharper and far more visible high power LED flasher systems because they have an indicator relay that is not available as an LED-friendly version can be catered for. I now have bulbs with all of the extra electronics built in to allow them to work with these original relays and to not create fault codes or activate warning lights on cars with monitoring systems, even sophisticated canbus systems. Make no mistake, this is real progess, is a world first, and is a transformative change in the status of the industry. 

During this year, I will be announcing another world first. Warning lights are often missed, especially in bright conditions. Missing their message can lead to expensive and tragic consequences. I will be introducing a range of LED upgrades bulbs to cover all of the warning lights types which flash when they come on. The movement guarantees that they will be seen, so those that warn of a failure of a vital function or resource will be seen quickly enough to make a difference.


Good news
Some of you will have read about a certain amount of controversy regarding the use of LED lighting upgrades on classic cars. Now that the revised MOT regulations are out and in force, it is clear that while the powers that be still frown on upgrading to HID Xenon on some cars in the UK, they avoid damning LED upgrades. The expert advice I have been given is that these now have a green light and there is now a new section on the website to offer them.  Regulations which were written decades ago struggle to cope with modern developments and there will always be some  bureaucrat who believes that his interpretation of them is the only version and that he knows better than us. If, like me you believe that common sense should trump ridiculous rulings, then please stand up for your beliefs and shout loudly that in order to keep classic cars alive and not exhibits in a museum, they need to be made safe to use in modern traffic conditions. This means making them more visible and capable of driving with lights on and not running out of battery power. I have been designing and developing my lighting improvements for over 15 years and supply them to customers in 36 countries. I am not intimately familiar with all of the regulations in all of the countries, so I have to rely on customers doing their own research. It seems that in the UK I have to tell you that my safer, brighter and more efficient HID lighting upgrades are officially only for offroad use.  I rely on your common sense and wisdom beyond that. I have always given a money-back guarantee with all of my products and will continue to do so. If anyone who has already upgraded his car feels that he wants to go back to his previous candle power, this applies equally to them during the two year warranty period.

  To those of you who have both supported me and given me invaluable feedback, please don't stop. What I do would simply not be possible without you.
   A small but useful tip for those of you who like to keep up with developments, check out the Classic Cars section starting from the end and working backwards.
