    Just completed my first mod. Such a simple thing makes a world of difference to the appearance. Got these off ebay for £14, they're the ones that look like microchips rather than a standard LED bulb. They look and work great, no errors or anything like that. I intend to upgrade all the lighting to LEDs inside and out.

    Why does your bumper trim look more angled than mine , the car looks mean in that picture

    As for the lights, im impressed, especially since there are no error lights.

    Do you have a link to the bulbs on ebay?

    Waiting on your night time pictures!

    Yeah I saw them but didn't want ones with the LED chips facing forward. Went for the ones where they had 2 chips on each side so they threw more light around in the reflector. The ones I got have got 5050 SMD LED chips that give out 20 lumens each, those other ones are 1210 SMD chips that only give out 7 lumens each. They'll do for the interior reading lights though.
