    Number Plate L.E.D's

    I was thinking about buying some rear number plate l.e.d's and was wondering if anyone has done this mod??

    is there any issues with bulb errors or anything like that??

    Thanks in advance

    Martin

    Just did it last weekend.

    These are my special bulbs that i got which don't throw up bulb errors in my ECU they were a little pricey but worth it for piece of mind

    Things you need:
    New Bulbs
    Screwdriver the size of a pin

    1. Remove the screws in the numberplate holders which are in true vag style aimed towards the boot so only a miniscule screwdriver will fit in place making it infinitely hard to unscrew. Although this one seems very easy.

    2. Pop the cover out replace festoon bulb and screw back in.

    3. Find out the bulb is the wrong way round and repeat steps one and 2.

    4. Take compare pic.

    Nice!


    5. Be fooled that cause the right one was easy the left one will be just as easy, Its not.

    6. Soak in WD40 untill loose then replace bulb as per step 2.

    I emailed these guy and asked them if they're bulbs had resistors and they said that if the bulbs throw up the error then they will send out resistors Free of Charge

    I imagine that these will throw an error up because they don't have resistors. I have already tried some without and they throw an error up!

    Depends on what resistors they send you because there isn't much room left to house the bulb and the resistor together.

    Let us know how you get on.

    The footwell light bulbs are "capless" so you would need a different bulb to the numberplate style ones as shown on this thread. Capless LED's are avaliable but you will have to find one with a right angle otherwise the beam won't shine downwards.

    Received mine this morning.. fitted and work OK.
