Thanks chaps. Just made them out of some old aluminium book ends that were about 4mm thick so bit of a pain cutting with 2 hole saws. Just used nuts and washers then to fix and space them of the the clip in plastic covers. It's really solid and better then hanging them off 2 fixings with negative spacers but then again took ages. I did enquire back then with a company to fabricate some for me but by the time they replied I had already made a set up. Thumbs Up

Here's a thread I recently added of my fitting process for these lights. It may help someone a little!

Thinking of getting a set of these, how have they been for those that gave them fitted? I'm a bit worried about the 5000 hours LED life.

Oh... condensation, that's worrying. My fog lights have this and I was hoping by replacing them I'd get rid of this problem.

Disco_Mikey - not good.

Presumably they are still under warrantee & should/will be replaced f.o.c ?

Please tell me these are worth buying. I want them but are put off by the condensation issue.

Fitted these to my MY10 D4 (inc. connecting up the cornering lights) - perfect physical fit - no dremelling / hacking / brackets required - direct fit as if specifically designed for the Discovery 4.

Also did the "LED Sidelighs as DRL's" mod (thanks to Discoteca Thumbs Up )

http://www.disco3.co.uk/forum/topic121169.html

Pic attached - somewhat over-exposed but you get the idea...



They're excellent - and cornering lights slowly fade out when they go off and then return back to DRL's - very OEM look & feel indeed.


No modification - fit perfect...

After Bezel replaced - excuse the mess (salt residue from road grr!)
