    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.

    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.
