  • Halogen headlamp options

    I see that the Roadster Factory sells Cibie-like and Lucas halogen headlight kits for $60 - $70, including bulbs. Daniel Stern sells actual Cibie headlamps for about $250, including bulbs. I have read that the actual Cibies are the best because of the light spread from those units.

    Anyone have TRF H4 lamps installed?

    Can anyone confirm the Daniel Stern Cibie lamps are worth the extra cost?

    According to Daniel Stern they are..plus some one planted the idea that unless they come from him, they might be counterfeit
    I bought one off Amazon and comparing it to one that was on the car before the cow encounter, my eyes could not tell a difference...so either they were both counterfeit or both real Cibie...
    If you have H4 headlight, you might consider these...it gets a little crowded in the housing, but it fits and man, do they throw out the light.

      I got my Cibie's from Amazon, $54 each. Search Cibie 82440 Headlight

      They arrived in Valeo boxes, and since Valeo owns the Cibie brand, I believe they are genuine. Genuine or not, you can tell they are very well-made units, and work very well in combination with either good halogen bulbs or LEDs. I wouldn't hesitate to get these from Amazon again.

        Somehow I missed all of the discussions about LED headlights. Last year I bought the headlight relays and halogen bulbs and they put out a lot of light. But my understanding is LEDs are plug and play. If I did it again it would be LEDS and no relays.

          Skootch - I think you are still better off with the relays than without. The LED bulbs I used are rated at 30W on full beam. That is about half the power consumption of a street-legal incandescent halogen bulb at full beam - so, the LED's are drawing about half the current, or around 5A total.

          That is still a fair amount to put through the aging stock harness and switch (assuming that's what you've got), so that's why I left the relays in place.
