Need advice on replacement LED lights for R1200GS Trophy
« on: August 20, 2020, 09:17:44 pm »
I have a R1200GS trophy model, and that means normal Halogen lights, which are not very good.

I would very much like some advice on LED light replacements (H7 bulb I think?) that are suitable for South Africa... Meaning, I don't want the cheap type that is likely to overheat and so on.  Something that is proven, hopefully by WD members.

Thx in advance

If you want the no hassle, no shit option, get the proper LED light from BMW.  You can sell your existing light complete to recover some of the cost.  I can provide you with  the part numbers.

That's a good point - I'll need to go and ask BMW how much those units cost.
