    Default Front Interior Bulb

    Hey guys

    I want to change the front interior bulbs to LED canbus ones, not sure which ones they are?

    I took the lense of to have a look, they look a bit like 501 bulbs, but not to sure.

    Advice would be appreciated.

    Yes they are 501 bulbs - you also don't need to worry about the 'CANBUS', as you can put normal LED bulbs in there, so don't spend extra money on supposed CANBUS compatible lamps (that don't work anyway), just use the cheapest led bulbs you can find.

    Oh really, so the bulb warning light wont come on then? Would that apply to the boot light aswell?

    Cool.

    They are SMD Canbus LEDs so they wont put the warning light on, but what about just normal LEDs like:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/501-QUAD-W...item51909e931a

    I have some canbus LEDs in my numberplate lights already and they are super bright so might just get some more for the front interior light and a 264 festoon bulb for the bulb. I may even look at installing another light for the boot.

    Well my LEDs are ordered. I went for the board with 48 LEDS for the front interior light and 2 x 12 LEDs for the boot.

    Once I have received and fitted them, I will post some pics.
