One of our readers sent me a set of LED replacement for the cabin and external lights (2 for the dome lights, 1 for the luggage light, 1 for the map light, and 2 for the rear plate lights). While the car does not need bulb replacement at the moment (no busted bulb yet), I may try swapping the LEDs just to try them out. I will be posting a tutorial and a review about these LEDs soon.
One of the simplest and most cost-effective upgrades to an EcoSport’s headlight would be the replacement of the stock bulb with an LED emitter (some refer to this as “LED bulb” but technically, it is not a “bulb”, but rather, an “emitter”). About a year ago, I’ve upgraded our headlights to an LED, and performed a comparison with the stock halogen bulb.
Clearly, LED emitters illuminate the road far better than stock bulbs. Always install LEDs properly by directing the low beam to the ground, to avoid causing glare to oncoming vehicles.
To watch a video on how I replaced the stock halogen bulbs with a pair of hi-performance LED emitters, head to Installing LED Headlights.
