Ok ok - it was a spur of the moment thing and I thought I'd give them a try - in my defence there were also blue and green types available... ;-)

looks kinda TFTF. LEDs would look way better especially with your white shell

Good call - I've been replacing the interior lights with LED's and thought I'd do the plates once I get over the xmas tree look ;-)

How do you replace the license plate lights?

Do you just unscrew the bracket, and replace the lightbulb, or is there more to it?

I have wanted to replace mine with brighter white lights for some time...

mbnz230,

What is the light size/model/type?

I tried searching eBay for C14 LED, but nothing came up.

Thank you...

Could you share some LED information about changing the interior lights!
What LED's go where, etc

Thanks

The ones I used were just "off the shelf" and I'm presuming the model numbers won't match anything on sale in the US. These were a traight install - just replace the original white (yellowish) bulbs and your done. I think I'll go with the whites however because the reds aren't really that smooth (appearance wise).

Unfortunately my car's in the shop at the moment so I can't provide any pics - however - here in Japan you can by LED's to replace the room/cabin lights straight off the shelf - I've even seen a "full W140 interior lighting set" available on the Japanese auctions for about $100 which I'd love to get.
