    i got a couple of these 48 led panels and the only thing i would say is that you can clearly see its 48 leds through the frosted panel thing.

    i wasnt so keen on that

    i found the 48 led panels were too bright.. the 12 LED ones were brilliant however, i have 2 in the rear and 1 in the front. the 2 48's were perfect for in the boot however.. which gives an incredible amount of light...

    I find standard 501 LEDs best, get the inverted lense type tho so you don't get the halo on the light lense.

    Where did you get them from? Do they fit in the light holders properly or is there any modding to do?

    These will look good with the blue led conversion and extra light in the boot will be a winner

    Thanks mike. ive used the ones you said in the post above in my vectra and it looks alot better.

    Only thing thats stange is that when i unlock the car the front big light no longer comes on unless i press the button second from the right then unpress it. It sort of flickers on then off when pressed once then when you unpress it it stays on?. i remember reading somewhere on this forum that it is a common thing for smd lights in vectras though so not too much of a biggy.

    Again thanks for the advice mike. Onto the headunit and reverse camera now, then going to try and repair the wing mirror controller as the up down left and right has a mind of its own.

    Cheers

    EDIT: @pompey-pimp mike has put ebay links in the post if you look closely. Also they are T10 so they go staight into original sockets. I had to take my sunglasses bay out though in order to push the bulb board down when inserting them as it was bouncing when i put pressure on to insert.

    no modding, all panels come with the relevant adapters to convert to festoon, soffit or normal metal based bulbs:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1906266441...84.m1497.l2649

    thats the exact kit i used for the boot lights. you cannot fit them inside of the boot light itself, but you can stick on the outside of the boot light, tucking all wires away..
