Hi all,

Kinda an aside to the other LED light thread, has anyone changed the boot bulb for an LED version?

I really struggle with the boot light, it is way to dim for the boot IMO. I'm considering either an LED replacement or fitting an LED strip across the parcel shelf.

Just wondering if anyone has done this, or considered another option?

To be honest, an Led build will change the colour of the light to a more white hue but it's very unlikely to be brighter than standard.
Your idea of an led strip as a addition would be better. :D

Cheers, interesting thought - I'd presumed it would be brighter based on the lumen output but a strip makes more sense.

Time to hunt for a decent retro fit....

It might be a tad brighter, but my experience of LED's, as limited as it is, would indicate a "prettier" light rather than a brighter one.

Cheers, worth an ask to keep OEM. I'll have a nose at LED strips - i then need to decide if I use the standard boot light feed to drive it or fit a new source.
