Evening all,
I'm after a show of hands. I currently have red LED footwell lights and they're very nice. Red matches the ambient lighting but I'm torn between red, white and blue. Here's what they all look light - which works best?

Just in case anyone wants to know, they're all '12 cluster LED W5W/wedge wide angle bulbs' from: http://stores.ebay.c...n-jp2008?_rdc=1. Come in all sorts of colours.

It was interesting to see them first hand. The red is bright but not excessively so, borderline perhaps. The blue looks good and is by far the brightest, it lit up the interior like a battlefield. I like blue LED's but those nearly gave me retina burn, lol. The white wasn't actually that much brighter than Ford's standard bulbs but it is a cleaner whiter light so a lot more noticable. I suspect I'll stick with red as it's tad more subtle and fits in with the ambient lighting. Alternatively I could rig up some sort of French fleg thing :lol:

I've seen they do amber ones, that should be colourful :D

Depends on the car. Seems Ford often fit the sockets/cabling but no bulb. I think Zetecs and Titaniums get them as part of the ambient lighting thing (ceiling, footwell, dash strip and cubby hole lights [they still neglected to fit a glove box light though, lol] and I've fitted puddle lights as well). If you have it the socket is set close to the lower dash panelling and points straight down att he pedals/your shins and are small slightly protruding round dark grey plastic socket. If they don't work spin them the other way as those LED's are polar sensitive. Socket on the passenger side is set very slightly deeper into the underside of the dash but you can't miss it.

Seems random, or more likely related to the engine which would probably go back to the production line, my Econetic 1.6 TDCi has the wiring and sockets ( and RED LEDS) but yet it's really the Style trim with eco tweaks.
Given I have the wiring for the powerfold mirrors and Cruise control and they have been activated, and I probalby also have the Ambient lighting wiring (too garish for me I think) IO bet it goes back to the line they came from and the woring / parts on that line.
