I know, what you do is take your bulb out n plug one of these in instead. It comes with an adapter so it plugs in the same as the bulb.

What you do is completely remove the lens cover, plug this in n it's self adhesive so stick it over the hole in place of the cover.

You'll get this effect:

All good mate, I've fitted a second boot light too so I've got one pad each side. Completely fills my boot as you can see.

Also got one in the glove box:

Yup, so as the pads come from china what i'd do is order 3 at a time so you got one for the boot n glove box n another if you decide to fit a second boot light.

I would recommend a second boot light too, really cheap and quick to do. All you need is a bulb holder n a length of wire.

Don't think any cree is 'legal' mate due to being 6000k.

Just means when MOT time comes along, you just swap your decent sidelight bulbs over for you old crappy standard ones. Pass the MOT, then soon as you get back home you swap em back over.

It's what I'm gonna have to do next week concerning my cree reverse lights.

Don't worry.
You'll pass your MOT with Cree reverse bulbs in, not front ones though.
