Hi all new here , I said I would throw up a few pictures of my headlights I got from Japan they change the lights to a projector with sequential led indicators and led park lights aswel and really modernize the jimny . These particular headlights are called m-bro thunder and are a plug and play option .
I have also fitted a light bar to the roof using a length of channel bolted to the existing roof bars and then drilled a hole in the aerial to run the wire the least intrusive way I could think of this particular light bar has a dip beam and high beam which allows you to show off essentially with out blinding other drivers.
Please let me know if you like more in-depth pictures .

Welcome to the forum. Those lights are cool, how much were they if you don't mind telling? Also do they have an e11 etc classification stamp for type approval?

The lights are not e marked but here in Ireland we have a road worthiness test every year similar to mot and headlights do not have to be e marked in order to pass they just have to properly aligned I would imagine it is the same for you , see if you can find a test guideline handbook online . They cost 500 euro 150 of that spent on shipping they are available on the global rakuten site , bit expensive but not woefully more than new oem ones

It's not the mot that is going to get you, you can have a 10 minute old mot pass and if a copper or vosa check point pull you they will do you under the construction and use lighting regulations. If they notice and are feeling difficult. Also a loss adjuster for the insurance could well turn round and claim that by not being approved to e mark standard your lights were a contributing factor in your claim and then try to void the policy. It's all a matter of your personal level of acceptable risk. For me it's a pity that they don't have an e mark as they are really cool.

As I disovered in the past - the E rating doesn't neccessarily relate to the beam pattern but also to the materials and/or standards that the unit (lights or any other component for that matter) is built to


IF IT AINT BROKE, KEEP FIXING IT UNTIL IT IS
