Halogens weren't available on the UK Spider, got the brochure in front of me. Bi-Xenon for the 'normal' glass style headlights, then the Carbon 'Bug Eye' style were LED and £2350 option.
Sorry typo, i meant 35W/65W (Watts). Unless hybrids and BEV's are using D2/5S systems, anything made before 2019 with xenons are 12V circuits lol@OriginalForza I think the D5S Xenon bulbs in our 4Cs are different to most other Xenon bulbs because it works off a 12v circuit (see image below) and there is a step up transformer built into the bulb housing. There are LED replacements which claim to be plug compatible with D5S, but as per my previous post I have not tried it yet. The other alternative is that there are 35W D5S replacements which should be brighter but they are more expensive than the LED replacements.

Good point. Don't know for sure. I am hoping it is at least 5A as they would have to cater for markets where they use 55W halogens. Will check tomorrow as the car is back under its cover now and I have done too much contorting myself to access things for one day!Do we know what the fuse rating is? Those LEDs are 45w so hopefully it's not a 2.5A fuse.
The wiring diagram E2011 I got from the 4C cloud says the headlights are powered off the Body Computer M001 which is on the maxi fuse F01 rated at 70A. This powers all sorts of things so hoping there is enough headroom to accommodate an additional 3.4A. I had forgotten how "creative" Alfa wiring can be!Do we know what the fuse rating is? Those LEDs are 45w so hopefully it's not a 2.5A fuse.
