    Interior LED Conversion

    Ok this basically was started in the number plate thread but was getting confusing so better in a thread of its own. Things have moved on since the interior LED's were first done last year and now with more bulbs available with built in resistors i want to do a plug & play version of it

    So basically these are the main lights for the conversion:

    Festoons:
    2x Vanity lights
    2x Rear courtesy lights
    2x Front courtesy lights

    Wedge:
    2x Front map lights
    1x Glovebox light
    1x Boot light

    So anybody got any links to the bulbs they used for any of the above?

    Thinking these would be suitable for the vanity/courtesy festoons listed above as i am running them in the number plate with no issues:

    As long as the heat-sink on the back doesn't stop them from fitting into the light units (not alot of space in there) what you guys think?

    I would stay away from bulbs from Ebay mate, all the ones ive got have failed months down the line as they are rated to 12v and sometimes surges can go to 13-14v which will blow it.

    Ultraled's bulbs are rated to 14v and out of all the scores ive purchased over the years, not 1 ever failed.
