You got a picture of these in action jazz?

I'm after the OEM LED look, in terms of brightness. I'm worried these 6 LED units might be too bright?

If its a festoon fitment then yes they will.

I opened the boot so the lights are at eye level. Place the head of the screwdriver into the little slot and move it in a horizontal motion (left or right, cant remember) and it should just pop out.


Oh, if your changing the front dome lights don't do it the way that link was shown. Some little screws in the sun visor on each side, remove them and you can get your hand around to undo the clips.

Fitting took longer then expected,
Was meant to be a simple 2 minute job, but when i went to click in the light, the spring flicked up and fell in the boot lid,
So it took me about another 45 minutes trying to take off the boot trim in the dark, Those push in rivets that hold on the carpet are a .....

Finally done it though and looks good
Would have liked the colour to be a bit more ice white though, Like 8000k
