Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t already.
‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’.

We’d like you to post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already. http://www.slkworld.com/new-members-introduce-yourself-here/


Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.

Welcome from NE England.

Apart from the obvious risk of dazzling other road users and running the risk of them colliding with you, or even worse, running over and killing to death innocent pedestrians - especially when wet (due to specular reflections ), you will stand a real risk of melting the headlamp housing or wiring due to the extra current flowing.

Laws for maximum light output are there for a good reason, the design of the housing and wiring is costed down to these regulations.
