    I have an led light strip for a vehicle (12v). I wanna hook it up inside my house, and i want come directly of my computers power supply. the power supply will not be running a computer just the leds by its self. its 250 watts and powers 12v and 5v. What im asking is, will there be too many watts for the leds and burn them out or should it be fine?

    ok, i have a bigger bulb like that, but the fitment is 501, can you measure how large the hole is for the bulb to go through and i may be able to supple a larger one.

    Thanks

    Hi Ste,

    just finished doing the upgrade on my 4F avant, bulbs everywhere. i can offer the kit for the Avant @ 79 posted. it will have the following bulbs:

    front map lights
    rear map lights
    front dome lights
    sunvisor lights
    boot lamps for the roof
    footwell LED upgrade front and rear
    4 x Door puddle lights
    4 x red door warning lights
    2 x boot door lights

    i can throw in the 2 led number plate lamps for you also in this kit.

    i have not tried the reverse lights out as i dont know how to get to them so not sure how they will look.

    Any questions then please ask.

    Thanks

    Ste,

    Take a picture of how to remove them for me, email them to me - trups_27@hotmail.com

    i will take a look and if they work error free i can sell you some, it they error i wont sell them to you.

    i can do they DRL's for you, they may error with the LED but if you can get me the current coding or if you are willing to do a small mod we can trick the system?

    I have a bulb thats an upgrade for the LED's, you will get 4 in the kit for your car, the green one is the DIM OEM one.

    [​IMG]
    Untitled by Ste_Nova, on Flickr

    the pair on the left i don't know where they fit! lol
    the one marked dome smoked when installed, you can see the burn on the label (view the hi res pic)
    the red door marker one is dead, no sign of life

    and i didn't seem to get a glovebox one? all the leds were pairs

    apart from that they are the dogs ********! :D

    What did you put in your roof in the boot? you would of got a 4 led for the boot roof and the 2 led for the SV. and then another 36mm bulb 2 led for the plate lamps.

    mine was the same in regards to the rear doors, i just undid the bottom of the door card and pulled the wires through.

    Let me know how you get on swapping out

    plate lights should say NP on them, if not they look like the ones in your picture of the SV ones but are smaller when put next to each other.

    PM me your address and il get the other 2 sorted for you so you can finish it off.

    Just undo the bottom screw and pull the bottom of the card, you dont need to take the whole card off.

    there the ones in the optional lighting strips in the doors, 3mm 3v leds, and they are pants you can hardly see them in full darkness

    have a look here you can see they have changed them to blue, looks like they have a resistor, i'm thinking bin that and get 12v leds?
