Not sure what's involved with the 'G'

I know there are a couple of guys on here that do them on the 'H' but not sure about the 'G'.

I'm sure someone will be along to help!

Very difficult to get a good result on G's as they are all twist-fit bulbs :(

I wouldn't bother, personally.

oh right, what if i was to get some super bright leds and solder them in?
Hi mate welcome to the site :wave:

it is possible to do it that way but its not just as easy as just soldering in leds i think you need to solder in resistors too but does look amazing when its done like that il try and find a link to ladvxl's pics of her conversion that her hubby did for her (Y)

Nice one mate... and by the way, I'm not taking anything away from whoever did that job, getting it to look that good is a real achievement on an Astra G...

Like said it looks much better than the bulb upgrade, but just a little the other way; bright.

The big SMD’s used in the Astra H / Zafiy B steering wheel are a little too bright, these full size LED’s must be touching on Blackpool Illuminations.

(No there fine in my Zafiy Adam before you ask :thumbs:)
