    Hey all,

    Having not found anything online about this, I'm hoping this isn't a dumb question that everyone already knows the answer to!

    Next week I'm off in my 90D to Barcelona, so am looking at headlamp deflectors.
    As per the subject I've got a facelift model with the full LED lamps.
    Does anyone have any recommendations?
    This is the first car I've had with LED lamps.

    Or, as per a thread about a year ago regarding the older style xenon lights, do I actually need any at all?

    Many thanks
    Mike

    It's the same as before, deflectors or adjustment is not required.

    On a slight tangent, a few new owners have complained that compared to their previous cars (Jag and Volvo in particular) the LED lights are poor. How are you finding them?

    Awesome, that'll save putting those stupid things on!
    Thanks!


    Hmm, well, I didn't exactly have an ideal comparison, this is my first car with LEDs.
    The main beam is distinctly underwhelming though even from an 'old' Audi with HIDs.

    The way high-vis stuff (traffic cones, jackets, etc) and road signs are picked up is amazing, but I'd imagine that's purely an LED thing.
