I've recently had a couple of LED bulbs I installed into my courtesy light start flickering thus causing me to temporarily fit standard bulbs again.

After a nice soft but bright light I felt that a better solution was needed.

As I have the unit with map lights and LED ambient lights fitted it takes T10 style bulbs and the following item was a perfect fit-

If you have only a single T10 bulb then this is the one for you-

Another option for a single bulb unit, (comes in T10 and festoon versions for all fittings)-

 

http://www.ebay.co.u...=item4ad779444b

 

I strongly recommend the ones I fitted, better than normal T10 bulbs by far.

 

The seller is a top bloke as well, he sent the single T10 fitting one by accident and on alerting Him to this He sorted it immediately with no fuss and the replacement was here within 7 days.

They look good.....I'd have looked into getting some of those but got map lights front and also in the rear now and already gone for CREE bulbs in them with the festoons matching the submarine lighting.

 

Could maybe do something with the 3-piece version......

The ones as I listed go right out when they should, no residual glow at all.

I'm very happy with them.
I just couldn't stomach the idea of putting standard yellow bulbs back in.
Even blue tinted bulbs looked more green than anything else.

I just bought some T10's to try and improve the colour but might take it a step further with these later!

What style courtesy light have you got?
If you can post a photo then I'll be better able to guide you.
