    Default Second boot light and leds

    Think I'm going to run wiring and fit a second boot light tonight as It does my head in how badly lit the boot is. Cost me 50p from scrappy for a second light and going to get two led bulbs for them aswell. Anyone else found this to be an issue for them?

    Is the bootlight not controlled by canbus? IE if you wire anything more into it itll cause problems?

    I wouldn't bother with the second boot light - just wire some LED strips into the existing circuit - doesn't cause any issues with the canbus if you tap straight off the existing bulbs

    My first lot of boot LEDs



    Now to match the rest of the car (footwells, sub etc)

    fair enough fella - however, you will probably find the 2nd boot light will make no difference at all! the mod in my pics above cost less than £5 for the bits plus my time wiring it in, so still a very cheap but very effective mod tbh!lol

    Edit: oh btw - here are my footwells at the moment - again, sub £5 mod


    Front



    Rear
