looks right, my CMAX is a 10w 42mm long festoon bulb, I just bought a very similar bulb, but I am fairly confident that will fit.

 

for reference, I bought:

fitted mine on Friday and they both work a treat. Just remember to switch off the light before trying to fit the bulb. I made this mistake twice, and frazzled two fuses :P whoever would have thought that you should learn from the first instance!

I'm going to take the plunge and get them now :)

 

I recently bought a headlight kit from the same company and it was with me within 2 day so excellent service.

 

Thanks for the help :rolleyes:

if you have interior scanners, then the w6w sounds right, but yes, if you get a coloured one, should be a straight swap.

Because the bulbs draw very little current sometimes residual voltage in the wiring will keep the bulbs glowing for a little while.

TBH you could keep those bulbs burning for more than a month and they shouldn't pull your battery down.
