    Hello,

    I am also owner of XF X260 that was bought in Germany and only thing I am missing on my beloved Jag are LEDs, so I looking at replacing my Xenons for LED headlights. Can you guys who made similar conversion confirm that replacement is working without any issues now that you had this replacement for a while and that all you did was just "plug and play" new LED headlight.

    I am a bit concerned before making a purchase as dealers that sell those LED headlights don't have consistent answers regarding modifications required (some want to charge additional 200GBP for modifications, others saying it takes lots of drilling and rewiring...). Also, could you share exact part number of LED headlights you have now as I see there are some variations on models available on internet - GX63-13W029-LF, GX63-13W029-LA, GX63-13W029-LB.... all for EU spec headlights and I don't understand what differences are (if any).


    Thanks,
    Andrej

    Hi Andrej
    Yes I have fitted the full LED headlight in my x260 the fitment is straight forward they just bolt in exactly the same you can just plug them in and they function as normal only issue you will have is the indicators inside the car will be fast as if a blub has blown has blown. I got round this with some load resistors it's is all plug and play no wiring mods at all

    Thanks Ian,

    I went forward with purchasing LEDs and as you said they fit perfectly nice and they work as expected. I noticed issue with fast indicators inside car, same as you did. If you can share some more light on how to fix this that would be perfect.

    Another thing I noticed - and just wondering this is also happening in your case - is that after turning car on, even if just day LEDs are turned on for a while, there is hum coming from both headlights, as there was kind of fan inside cooling them off and this goes on for couple of minutes. I assume this is normal, but I haven't noticed this on my previous car (not Jag) with LEDs.


    Thanks,
    Andrej

    Hi Andrej,
    Have you got the answers to your questions ? the hum, you are correct there are fans in the lights you can hear them on all the Jags, If you want some pictures of how I solved the fast indicator problem drop me an email address I will forward some to you.

    Hello Ian (and rest of members),

    I am newbie in this Jaguar Forum. I own a Jaguar XF (X260) with Xenón HIM and I came in this post looking for info about replacing them with LED Headlights.
    As far as I have seen, it seems that installation is not an use, just replace and plug the LED´s headlights. I am confident with this process.
    Glad to read that only a minor modification it is needed. I would appreciatte a lot if you could send me some details.

    Thks

    Juan
