    The reverse lights on my signum very poor, I can see nothing through the tinted back window, has anyone tried these type of things. http://www.solware.co.uk/customise-c...ht-bulbs.shtml

    I suspect that fitting LEDs to your lights will trigger the bulb failure warning, and the LEDS may also strobe even when they're supposed to be off. You mention that you can't see out the back window - you do know that reversing lights are intended to make your car BE seen as it reverses, not to help YOU see, don't you?

    Thanks for the reply about the LED's, yes i realise that they are a warning for others it's just that on my previous cars they has also lit the way as well especially on my Volvo s60, I live at the far end of a narrow grove "made worse by people parking in it" and have to reverse about 100mtrs then into my drive and dont fancy running any of the small kids over while doing it. even though some seem to deserve it.

    next best option is retrofitting parking sensors and/or a camera system

    They are also meant to light the kerb up. Thats an EU thing, not uk.

    might put some micro ones under the bumper.
    Would love the flame thrower but I can't afford the fuel

    I also have this kind of problem. My rear windows are tinted and at night when going backwards i can't see almost anything if there are no lights in the street... Reverse lights help a bit, but not enough... i'm thinking about installing additional xenon bulbs for parking at the night time, which could be switched on seperately from reverse lights

    Even when, for design reasons, there's only one light rather than two, and it's a tiny slit-like thing?
