Maybe a few rounds of Kumbaya while we all hold hands?  ;D

Here is a list of LED bulbs that went into my 2010 C5.....http://www.enfieldmotorcycles.com/forum/index.php/topic,10412.msg120600.html#msg120600

With regards to the H3 halogen, why wouldn't you simply stay with the H4 style for the C5?  Is there any advantage of going with the H3?

I almost threw in a link to 16V automotive batteries, but that might lead to critical mass in your thread ;)

Don't worry.....Bare and Gremlin are good guys.....a spin around the block in their thumpers and the brotherly love will be back  ;D

H3 were to be for spotlights which I posted about on another thread, but it was suggested that 2x55w halogen spots may be a bit too much for the C5, so I was enquiring as to H3 LEDs and the possibility of H4 LED and use perhaps H3 Halogen........confused? .......I am!

What's wrong with a well-intentioned flame war ?

I acknowledge 12 and 14 volt electrics are somewhat interchangeable. 

by that, I mean to say 14 volt bulbs on a 12 volt system are OK.  However, I would caution against placing a 14 volt battery in your 12 volt vehicle.

.......   it's fun to nit-pick & have differences of opinion !

an H4 LED will lower the demand, but, it won't be enough to account for the increase that a pair of 55watt H3's will add.

there are a variety of H3 style LED implementations available, some are totally worthless, and, others have varying sizes depending on the number of LED segments in their design.

If you can define your maximum size parameters I think a trip around eBay will be "enlightening"......
