    Pretty sure they are 39mm festoons. Check whether you need error free LEDs otherwise you will trigger EML !!

    while your there do the interior lights aswel, 42mm festoon, 2x 501, 2x T5 LEDs looks great and really cheap !!

    He'll can sort you out some super white LED's - I've just got a full LED kit for my car off him and no issues here with the kit. You can obviously buy the number plate bulbs on there own if you don't want the full kit

    Went for the four pack, used them for number plate and large interior light. It's made the map lights, ones in the back and puddle ones look pap though.

    What size/model do I need for those?

    No sure about the puddle lights, but map=501's and rear are t5. Tbh the rears are supposed to be a pain to change. I just turned them off ;))

    I'm pretty sure mine are Ring 239 led's on the rear (Been on 2 years so maybe 264s) and they don't have a bulb warning built into the number plate wiring so any will be fine.

    These are the ones from Trups. Much improved over standard.

    The plates bulbs just need the angle adjusting to cover the darker patch in middle but you get the idea..
