The number plate lights on a Mk2 are 38mm festoon and standard Mk2 courtesy lights are the same.
The bulbs you linked are ok'ish for footwell's but crap for boot lights.
The one I linked to will fit flush into the boot light lens and plug into the socket using the T10 adaptor included in the pack.
The light spread will be good and not wasted lighting up the inside of the boot trim as it will all be directed down.

Ah cool. As always thanks for your helpful input, Clive :D Is your car still running well, after the repair job, from the motorbike incident? I just read through that thread, you sure did have some back luck :P

The car's running like a dream, no problems at all.
Still hanging on for the Insurance company to get back to me, they sure do take their bloomin' time.

This is what i mean about the boot light, got the listing wrong, it's actually a 12 LED panel that fits exactly; sorry for the misinformation.

Well I have just bought this for I am not very happy with my Osram cool blue intense H7 bulbs. I went for the 8000k, should be nice and blue, but not so much that I get pulled :P. I don't really know what to do for the H1s, cos HIDs take a while to warm up so HIDs wouldn't be much good at flashing at people. May just stick with the halogens for now...

I have succeeded in a couple of small mods...

First, I have changed my old aerial, which was like 75cm long, for a 5.5cm long aerial:

New Aerial.jpg

Isn't it as cute as a button lol :P It really is rather tiny though.

Second I have changed my reg bulbs for some white leds, 38mm festoons

Reg Bulb Change.jpg

The blue 38mm festoon bulb I bought to replace my courtesy light bulb didn't seem to fit too well (naughty advice from Clive, tut tut! :P), I did manage to get it in by bending the clips slightly. When in the door position, with doors closed 4 of the leds would glow slightly, and when the doors were open it lit up normally. Was odd. But that bulb blew and managed to blow the fuse for the courtesy light at the same time, so I have got the seller to send me a new bulb and have replaced the fuse. Stuck with the old bulb for now, till the new one arrives, which is a 42mm this time, which is the same length as the original.

Fun times

On an update, I have just received my HID I ordered :D Just need to fit them with some help from a friend now.

Well that's it for now.
