    Smile Light Upgrade (T8UPS)

    This is for T8UPS but I cannot PM.
    I have a 2008 58 Plate Pre-Facelift Ibis White S3.
    I've seen a few cars around with the white number plate lights and fancied giving it a go. I would also consider the interior lights.
    I have a few questions.
    - Are the led No. plate lights legal?
    - Are they easy to fit? Straight replacement?
    - Are the interior lights easy to fit?

    If the answer is yes to the above can you tell me how much I would be and what I would need. I don't have footwell lights if that tells you anything. I have lights on the end of the doors but I can't say I've ever seen them working.

    Thanks in advance.

    Those 'lights' on the end of the doors are likely to be reflectors which is why you have not seen them lit up !

    Ah, Never really looked that closely. Could be.

    Seen some kits on ebay that show them as lights. Will take a closer look tonight.

    I think I misled a bit with the door light / reflector bit.

    I'm only looking to replace my existing bulbs and if the ones in the door are reflectors then that's fine.

    Cheers:-)

    Yeah t8ups will sort all bulbs out ,I have all led interior bulbs (+number plate) and it is so much better (bright) and if you want puddle lights , footwell lights and reflector lights it finishes the car off ,, lovely...

    Hi,

    the number plate lights are not illegal as they are a white colour, and alot of new cars have these in there.

    All the bulbs are easy to fit and they replace your existing bulbs, if you dont have the footwell lights then you dont have the optional light pack, not a bad thing as i can supply you some brighter LED's to bring it to life.

    front and rear dome lights £17 - 6 led
    sunvisors - £6 - 2 led
    numberplate £6 - 2 led
    boot and glove pack - £8.50 - 8 led and 4 led custom bulb - Audi Footwell/Puddle/Boot and Glove box 501 LED upgrade
    postage is £1.52 1st class recorded.

    Just pick out what you want and i can sort it out for you, all is in stock.

    Thanks
    Trups

    Hi,

    Thanks for that.

    Do you have any example photo's of how bright / white the lights are?

    Will have a think about it. I'll post again on how to go about getting them once I've decided.

    what part of the car are the bulbs in that have bought up an error?

    They will bring up an error if they are used in you number plate lights on the car in your sig.

    the bulbs i supply you for the inside wont bring up an error.

    Hi Trups,

    I've had a think about it and I would definately like to buy the interior lights. Can you let me know how I go about doing this and paying for them.

    For the numberplate LED's I'm just a bit concerned they will be too bright. I've read some comments about lighting up the car behind etc. I'm looking for a nice white light but not too bright. Do the ones you have fall into this catagory?

    Thanks in Advance.

    hi kayemill, i have replied to the other thread about payment.

    do it dont light up the floor angle the bulbs 45 degree's away from the number plate and it will reflect back onto the plate, i will get some pictures up on how to mount the plate lights tomo as they make a massive differance on light spread on the number plate.

    Thanks

    Hi Trups,

    Just to let you know I received my order yesterday when I got home. Everything in good condition. Kids won't let me fit them until Christmas though as they are a present from them.

    Will let you know how I get on and post some pics when finished.

    Thankyou very much.
