If you are planning to attend the lit meet week in LA come and say hi. We will be at Scott's independent in Anaheim all day Thursday with 2 tech sessions on lighting. Scott's will provide a free lunch with local grilled brats. When they are gone, they are gone!

Hello Jules,
are you thinking about selling your 356 LEDs in Euope or even Germany?

Hello Jules,
a few seconds ago I placed an Order (No. 10216) with you... Let us hope those Custom people have a soft heart and just charge thes duties and do not make more trouble. I am really looking forward to see my old B T6 Coupe with good lights..

That would be great, Jules, but my old B needs a bit of work before I can drive it. Let us hope the set makes it through customs.

Are you sure they are as good as the ones from Vintage Trader? We've had other suppliers whose lights didn't come close to the ones that Jules supplies.
Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints.....

Olivier, i will gladly accept that that challenge. You do not want any light with 6000k color temp in a 60 year old car, it may look ok in a Prius but not in a 356.

Happy to report that our sets will soon be available in Germany and France through our partner Classic-Parts-France, Albert Haefner.

Here is a quick glance of our 'complete set' which upgrades the entire car (ex headlights, they come in their own box). These are a Vintage Trader exclusive design and we already have some happy customers in France running our warm white headlights.

I've no affilation with the posted link.
It's only the product that I use, with satisfaction, on many cars.
I wish to ad a comment: LED headlight "bulbs" are not permitted in France as they don't pass the tech inspection (mandatory every 2 years). By this way, I don't have a real feedback about headlight bulbs.

Hi Mike,

Yes.... first test failed :(. Color is spot on (more of a yellow hue compared to the headlights to mimic the original yellow chrome reflector). Lots of light but I did not like the beam pattern so I am making some changes so it will have the same beam pattern as stock lights.

Aiming for 7watts per light, vs 35w for the stock bulb. The charging system will be very happy too!

Thanks, Jules. What about a bright white light that would serve as a driving light?
