    Default LED Lighting

    I noticed the other day that my work have just started advertising "automotive" LEDs, thought i'd get some and see what i could do on the LED hating Vec.

    http://uk.rs-online.com/web/generalD...utomotive_LEDs

    The festoon works fine in the boot and in the glove box, the T3's work for number plate lights and the front courtesy light (though the fade up/down doesn't work quite the same) and with no bulb warnings. I couldn't get into the illumiinated sunvisor to see what type of bulb it uses, nor the rear courtesy light, i would guess they are T1's, so should work fine as well.

    Next project for me is to try and make my own puddle lights, i'm hoping there's a supply in the door i can use, if not i'll have to run cables from the courtesy light all around the car

    Just standard bulbs, i'll wait until they need replacing and then try LEDs.
