I ended up going to Cartoys and luckily when i called them to ask if they had any T10 bulbs in stock, they said they have 25% offer for the day.

so got a pair of white SMD T10 bulbs for $17 ... totally worth it ! ..

These SMD's are brighter than the 6 bulb LED's i got from rotaryFx

paying postage would be logical if i was buying more than a pair of bulbs like some of you guys lol ...

P.s. Do any of you guys know what sort of bulbs go in the puddle lights ?
if they are T10 bulbs (which seems to be the standard size for the interior map, door, trunk and license plate lights) then i could just go back to cartoys and grab them tomorrow ...

Thanks

The puddle lights, doors, boot, number plate, glove box, map lights and front side markers are all t10 sockets, a lot of other manufactures use t10 in the dash cluster too.

thanks Driffill.

i changed the puddle lights to blue today ... totally happy with the look ;)

the LED's i bought for the front parkers from rotary fx are shit ... one of them looks more blue than the other .. and the other one looked blue at first, but then after getting warmed up a bit, it suited the stock front lights.
the other side makes the headlights look yellow ...

not gonna be shopping from rotaryfx in the near future thats for sure.

plus bought and installed fender strakes as well ... passenger side was nice and flush, the driver's however was not as good, but still alright.
such a headache ..

My 2c is the rotaryFX
led lights are grossly overpriced, unless they charge $10 for instructions lol
Dude I wanna know more about that led... can you please help me to get the light ?

Does anybody have a how-to guide on installing the licence plate bulb? I imagine it's reasonably simple...

Have a look on the .com forum there is a whole section to DIY threads. :thumbright:

I just shoved a screwdriver up there and popped the plastic covers off.

Or, slide the housing (for the light) off the bumper! Grab the housing and push it towards the front of the car, once its off it should come down a little from the bumper and be easy enough to see how to open it and replace the bulbs :)
