    Default boot led's

    i am after a couple of led strip lights to improve the illumination in the boot.

    i tried searching on here for boot led but it ignores the led and so i just get every post where anyone has mentioned the boot lol.

    can anyone point me in the direction of some decent ones to go for that wont cause errors with the car please.
    there are billions on ebay and struggling to choose the right ones.

    thanks guys.

    There are plenty on eBay. I bought 2 30 smd led strips and work a charm. The boot light isn't part of the bulb check circuit so you'll be fine

    I've pinched the idea from Lizard and used the LED strips you can get in ikea, just a case of stripping the transformer off it and wiring it straight into the boot light wiring.

    Only costs a tenner and comes with the holding fixtures too

    The image is a bit dark (crap camera), but it is rather bright
