Alfa 159 TI Full LED Conversion – Exterior Guide

Category: Cars

This post covers the exterior lighting made to my 2008 Romeo TI. If you are interested in the interior guide, click here. This modification can be completed as a single project or as a series of smaller projects as the cost of components is still quite high due to some of the LED types in use. If you do choose to split the project I would suggest separating the turn signals / Indicators, Numberplate lights, sidelights and rear clusters into stand alone projects.

For an alternative approach to upgrade the “Third Brake Light” at position 9, click here to see the Cylon Project.

The complete/finished product is better displayed as a video and as such you can watch this one I made of the complete conversion:

    Hi Rattan (and Jay).
    I would live to get a set of your amazing alfa Halos for my 2009 Brera even if as part of your development testing.
    You were guessing at £450-500 a set. I’m happy with that and can pay instant PayPal for a set.
    If this is not possible I would appreciate details on how to get and fit the parts. I can source new lights Ok.
    Hope to hear from you soon,

    If you would like to purchase a set of controllers I am planning a second production run on them once I get 10 people interested. To get your name added to the list send an email to halo@jabawoki.com with name, alfaowner.com forum name, + address etc.

    thanks for all your advice so freely shared. I may have found a simple solution to the 3rd brake light issue. I have found some T5 led 12v lights. 10 for about $5, and they seem to include a resistor inside the glass with the led. I found them on Ebay Australia http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/10pcs-T5-Clear-LED-Xenon-White-Dash-Wedge-Bulbs-/381116462948?pt=AU_Car_Parts_Accessories&hash=item58bc4fb764

    I’m awaiting mine to arrive. let me know if you want a report.
