I ordered my blue ones last night to! Been dispatched this morning! Cannot wait, I need to get out more :P


What bulb type do I go for? I have the standard "white/yellow" Ford crap and want to change too

Have something to contribute?

I ordered the red ones. ^_^

Funny, the owners manual doesn't even mention them and says both the front and rear fog lights are not serviceable?!?!

I know! It's crazy - they go through all the effort to put them in the cars and don't use them or mention them. Probably was going to be an optional extra that never happened

If you want other cheap interior light upgrades to LED then the courtesy, map and boot are all easy. I've upgraded a lot of the outside to LED too but that can be more of a faff and you need to chose bulbs carefully to get the look you want. Stuff like the number plate bulbs are also easy, cheap and worth doing. Footwell LED's are a cracking little mod whatever the colour and I'd have never thought of it without this place, so I doff my hat. Would be keen to see pics of other how other folks have worked out.

ive fitted some rear footwell lighting and spliced them in to the front footwell lighting loom.
purchased some led pods from texas and double sided pads mounted them on to pf the back seat footwell blowers.
work a treat.

Nice idea, hadn't thought of that. I've done a similar thing to get puddle lights mounted beneath the door bins, works well and fairly easy to do.

I did see puddle lights with a Ford Badge light shape available wasn't sure how easy this would be to do so I kinda glanced by it.

They are quality,
i read up on them before and its Cree bulbs that are inside the units so the only other parts are the wiring and the lens which is not likely to fail in a hurry, they have also dropped in price they were £50 so the cheaper price makes it easier for the 5 door drivers ;) could even make a little bracket for behind the front grill to hold one and have it projecting out through the grill on to the ground in front of the car and wire it to the interior light feed to illuminate when you unlock the car.

i have more pics of them here http://www.fordowner...__1#entry187409
vauxhall ones would be great for highlighting the Poo on the ground too :P

I always reckoned that the best way to find a Vauxhall (spit) in a car park is to follow the flies.

Red=You going in to 'Do' a Lady
Blue =Sci-Fi
White=you've just walked into another car,room blah blah blah

....Ergo...Blue is the way forward (probably smell fresher than the red too ;) )
