    Hi, one of my number plate lights has gone and I was thinking of replacing both of them at the same time with LED lights.

    How easy would the following product be easy to fit? and what tools would be required?

    Not meaning to hijack the thread but can anyone advise on a DIY to fix the number plate lights with a bit of wire and solder?

    One of mine has gone (corroded) but the other works perfectly. I bought some LEDS from SSDD to fit but need to get the holder working first as there is no current through it at all

    as far as im aware the canbus doesnt have anything to do with the no plate light (well not on my car) so any bulbs is OK

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/UNIVERSAL-BMW-...%3D5%26ps%3D63

    Those will do you just fine

    Defo got to be done, Youd be crazy to replace with original yellow bulbs if you need to change them anyway
