For anyone that hasn't seen my lighting..

I like them blue lights, wouldn't want a main blue light though, that would get annoying. But it looks freaking cool.

How many bulbs do you have in that ceiling light brigante? I checked mine earlier and it only fits one W5W bulb, and for some reason the switch up there has been a bit fiddly since I checked (doesn't seem to want to sit in the middle position) It only works properly if I turn it on or off....

I've got 2 w5w bulbs mate (same type as front foot-wells) 1, either side of the long courtesy light. What does your light unit look like?

Definitely a different unit, Mine simply has the w5w socket in the middle of some plastic trim, nothing either side, and only one toggle for off/courtesy/on.

Umm, looks like it. Buttons a bit different but I can't be sure. I'll get a picture of the unit without the cover on it tomorrow, it looks like it could be possible to install some map reading lights.

If you really wanted to could buy and install this, shouldn't be too hard to swap over.

Or just stick one of your foot-well lights in n make do with that.

I like the idea of the 24 led festoon dome, I'd have to try and find one in red though.

Could always get one of these, comes with a t10 adapter to fit the socket in your courtesy light n may be able to trim it down to size.

Measuring my courtesy light you'd either have to trim it down to 2 or 3 lines so that will still be either 16 or 24 leds in your courtesy light.

If you can't trim it down, stick it in your glove box like Clive n I.

I've contacted that matey in china with the link Clive sent about the possibility of getting a custom mod in red. If he says no then I'll probably give that a shot.

Nice one mate, I was gonna link the same thing but couldn't find any in red. I've contacted sellers before that have done a white one asking if they did a blue one, just for em to say if I dont see it listed, they dont do it lol

If it's available then jooseloosener will seek it out.

He's done it for me before when I was after door handle trays.

The only ones that seemed available were for the 2.5 and he dug up a set to fit the 2.0 for me.

Where the door handles are on the inside I've got plastic storage trays in them which are good for !Removed! and phones.
