    Default Interior light bulbs

    What are they? Wanting to change mine to LEDs, also do they need to be canbus compliant?

    I used these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-x-8-LED-...item43a92b4781 for the ones in the light panel on the roof. I dont think the interior bulbs are connected to the canbus system anyways tho so no worries!

    The ones in the boot are different tho http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CANBUS-FES...item4ab4930117

    Do LEDS still fade out like the original bulbs in the interior light after the door is closed? And I'm being lazy, as I could check but is it two bulbs I need for the interior front light?

    Yes mate there is 2 for the normal light that comes on when you unlock the car / open door etc and another 2 the same for the map lights. so 4 in total for that cluster.

    And yes, they fade when they go out like the normal bulbs do

    I found if you get the inverted lense LED 501s it spreads the light better and you don't get the spot light effect on the lense...
