    Would also be interested in the plug and play method for both interior and exterior LED's. Could someone post some links to bulbs that would work for 59 plate black edition.

    P5SND - please keep us up to date mate.

    Hope they work for you - they didn't for me !

    Actually I bought the Audi ones not the BMW ones - maybe there's a slight difference.

    Cheers

    did you go for different sizes of festoons mate? group buy might be an idea but could take some time to sort and different bulb type may be better from different suppliers, what do we need altogether then for the 3door?

    2x vanity lights
    2x rear courtesy lights
    2x front courtesy lights
    2x front map lights
    1x glovebox light
    1x boot light

    optional:
    2x puddle lights
    2x footwell lights

    Tee hee, I know that but the ones P5SND linked to and where I came in were 501's for the sidelights !!

    He said 'i'm giving these a go' which is when I asked him to keep us posted.

    How did we get from number plate bulbs to sidelight bulbs and then to interiors ???

    :think:
