Product Description

After a whole year of research, development and testing the CampervanCulture.com LED headlight kits are now available to buy.

Research – This one has been an interesting one for sure. After finding the headlights on the CVC Westy from factory are just dam dangerous and trying out the various relay upgrades and related bulbs just not quite good enough for our personal requirements. The round factory headlights are bad enough but we found the square ones even worse and night time driving with no street lights is just ridiculous. When you have to slow down because you cant see at night that’s when we decided to do smoothing about this.

Development – We work very closely with an electronics company. They have all ready made loads of things for us to our requirements and the quality is aways spot on. Of course there are always development glitches before you hit the final product and that is why we like to test things thoroughly before we sell them.

Testing – This kit for example has been fitted to the CVC Westy for well over a year now and it has covered many miles in a good few countries. Two other independent vans were also used during testing. One has just driven all the way down to the southern tip of Portugal and back so we are now happy with the quality and durability. We have taken the vans with our upgrade kits to seporate UK MOT centres around the country and asked them to take extra attention to the headlights and they have passed. Please feel free to check out actual UK MOT requirements regarding headlight converter kits here in the ‘information’ column.

Fitting – Fitting couldn’t be easier. Our kit involves no wiring what so ever, if you can drill a hole and change a light bulb then you can fit our kit in no time. A link on a helpful info sheet will direct you to a step by step fitting guide is included with every headlight upgrade kit sold. You are required to drill just one small hole in the Hella headlight holder at the back that does not effect it’s operation on the unlikely event you decide to swap back to factory bulbs. Factory VW Hella square and round headlights require this on UK and European vans but the aftermarket round headlights we have seen do not require any hole. On square headlight vans the inner spot light bulb holder at the back requires a small amount of filing and again this does not effect the operation of the Hella bulb holder in the unlikely chance you want to go back to standard factory bulbs. All connectors on our upgrade kit use the same size connectors as the factory ones fitted to UK and European spec VW T25/T3 vans.

Fitting customer tip: “The main lamp bulbs can be screwed in and out, their position is critical. If you screw them in too far the main and dip beams will diverge vertically and you will get a dark area between them. I found that they only need to be screwed in just enough for the run screw to do it’s job.
Keep up the good work guys.”

Please note our Headlight kits are for UK and European spec vans only, they do not fit Vanagon models but don’t worry we are working on that right now! There is also a very early round headlight that uses a bulb that does not use the Hella H4 housing that uses the three tabs and our kits will not fit those less common ones. Basically our kits replace the standard Hella bulb that looks like the picture below, so please check before you buy.

Please check the legality status of using after market lighting upgrades in the countries you plan to drive your vehicle in. Campervan Culture LTD can accept no responsibility resulting in not pre checking and will effect your returning of any kits in these circumstances. FM radio interference may occur on cheaper radio sets and although we haven’t found this to be the case on the sets we have personally fitted we thought it best to point this out just so you are aware before you buy. If interference does occur on a cheaper radio it can often be cured with a ferrite core clipped over one of the feed wires.

    These are probably the best upgrade you can do to your van. Mine has the twin square lights and is LHD, the performance particularly on dip was terrible even with NightBreaker bulbs and relays. These are fairly easy to fit and make night driving much more comfortable.
    TIP: the main lamp bulbs can be screwed in and out, their position is critical. If you screw them in too far the main and dip beams will diverge vertically and you will get a dark area between them. I found that they only need to be screwed in just enough for the run screw to do it’s job.
    Keep up the good work guys.

    Oh, forgot to say that these bulbs don’t appear to cause a ‘kick’ up on the kerbside so I have removed the beam deflectors I needed as it’s LHD.

    These lights are an excellent addition to the van, I have the South African grill with middle spots, this upgrade has improved the visibility no end. The were easy to fit with excellent video to follow if needed.

    I have just bought the round LED Headlight Upgrade Kit for @BertieVWT25 My T25
    I of course did not remove the lights to see what bulb I had in my lights,
    This was a mistake as my light where the older type and not the H4 headlights.
    I email campervanculture to ask if there was a different part to make the LED bulbs fit,
    The reply was no, (Please refer to the bottom of the product description)
    But was offed refund. (thank you)
    I did not want to send back as I had changed all the rest of my bulbs to LED from Campervan Culture and they where amazing
    So what I did was to Buy two new round headlights from VW Heritage parts center ltd,
    They are H4 Headlights & Genuine VW Hella lights although this cost me another £97.
    I also wish I had also bought Two front grille retaining clips because they broke trying to remove them,
    Now fitted I can only say they are amazing,
    I would recommend them to anyone that has a T25 to buy them.
    I can now see as i drive along with ease,
    Thank you so much Campervan Culture keep up the good work
