    Hi paul, there's a load of threads. Look up maz's though.

    He posted a great one a while Back with all sizes, bulbs, what he bought with links from where. It included internal and external.

    It was great. I actually did an identical upgrade as a result and the number plate lighting is great. At night my plate just lights S3 JG in crystal white. It was happy days. Set me back about £100 in bulbs though...they certainly add up.
