Caterham LED Rear Lights Upgrades – From Turn 7
- Upgraded LED Backing Plate
- Dual High Level Strip Lights
- Supplied and Fitted for just £399 incl VAT
Caterham tail lights are an area which have been in need of improvement for a good long while.
Caterham are aware of this and have now produced a very stylish new LED rear light cluster which replaces the original units whilst retaining the boxy shape we are all familiar with.
Enter Caterham LED Rear Lights Upgrades.
The new cluster includes running lights which extend around three of the four edges, built-in fog lamps, thin central indicator bars and small brake light elements to the outer edges.
Priced at £436.90, the Caterham LED Rear Lights Upgrades kit is supplied by Caterham for home fitting, along with a new number plate light containing a reversing lamp.
These rear light clusters have the added benefit of enabling you to remove both the fog and reverse lamps from the rear panel, with Caterham supplying reflector bars to cover the holes left behind.
These are, in our opinion, a very nice product which modernises the look of the back of the car, without removing it too far from the simple styling Caterhams are so well known for. There is however still a small question mark over the visibility that these lights provide to the vehicles behind you.
The Problem with Caterham Tail Lights
One of the fundamental issues with Caterham rear lights is their being positioned so low down. With modern cars continuing to get bigger, and the growing popularity of SUVs, it is becoming increasingly difficult for the average motorist to see our lights when they are close behind us. With the new Caterham LED Rear Lights Upgrades being positioned in the same location, this is an issue which hasn’t been addressed.
As for the light units themselves, the running lights around the edges are very bright and dominate a large portion of the cluster. With such small elements left for the brake lights, there isn’t an enormous change in the lighting level when the brake pedal is pressed. This problem then further extends to the indicators, which again are very small but also just add more light to an already very bright and localised area. This can make it difficult for vehicles behind to distinguish exactly what is being indicated to them.
So, What’s the solution?
In true Turn 7 fashion, we have spent a great deal of time experimenting with multiple options to find the best operational solution, whilst providing a nice finish.
Upgraded tail light bulbs
What we have devised is an upgraded LED backing plate, which is designed to sit within the existing light clusters and replaced the bulbs. This significantly improves the brightness of the original rear clusters and the area illuminated.
We then combine these with dual high level LED strip lights on either side of the roll bar/cage. Built into these are running lights, brake lights and indicators, providing a full additional compliment of lighting which is around two feet higher than the standard cluster alone.
Our Caterham LED Rear Lights Upgrades package comes supplied and fitted for £399 including VAT.
