    Crap boot light!

    Anyone else notice that the boot light is REALLY dim?

    Anyone changed theirs for a brighter bulb? If so what kinda bulb did you get? I can see that you can get LED ones but i aint too keen on those.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    Would be interesting to see if they work. Looks like it could be perfect for the boot.

    i did this last year in a 2000 mk4golf.

    iirc the interior headlining bulbs should use the same housing.

    1x festoon led case (small)
    2x festoon led case (large)
    2x 501 sidelight leds.

    Made a massive difference and would reccommend it.

    Not too sure about the glovebox light as this was a **** to get out.

    For a few quid they could have put one light on each side of the boot, called it the 'Rear Lighting Pack' and charged you 75!!!!

    1 brighter lamp or 2 of the same would have been better.
