Hey Jimrex... Mine definitely aren't LEDs... annoyingly. I'll get a picture up to show you. I had the bulb out in my hand earlier, so it's definitely something I can (and will!) change...

One of the hardest decisions of my life (not literally... but it was a factor) was going for the style of the Zetec-S over the additional functionality of the Titanium... and the ambien lighting was a tough thing to give up!

I don't even have a sunglasses holder in mine! Come to think fo it... maybe that's why you've got the LED interior light? Isn't that part of a premium set up up top??

p.s. I have a laptop... where the hell do i plug it in to unlock the hidden goodies???? lol

Brigante,

Thanks very much for your detailed reply. Really helpful too.

I swear I thought I'd read that 6000K or even 8000K were legal... but I know not to bother risking it now. Those Hyper White's do look nice though... lol

I like the look of the cool blue intense... so may well go for those myself. I'm guessing people recommend staying away from MTec and the like? Seem cheaper, but i guess that's probably for a reason?

Thought the sidelight LED's looked pretty good. I was thinking about getting them for the inside and the puddle's, but I think they may be a bit strong for the interior, and am not sure the shape would work in the puddles... I'll have to double check though.

Thanks for the advice on the fogs... That's enough for me to give them a miss. I've seen a couple on Ebay that look ok. This sort of thing?

I'm undecided with the footwells at the minute... I'd always thought I'd really like some Blue LED's in the footwells, but since I got the car am a little undecided on what i want to do there... Think I'll sort all the lights that are already there first, and then make a decision once that's done.

And the ignition ring... My car's got a Ford Power Start button, but i guess I could still install a light ring there? There's some sort of cap covering the whole ignition section, but has anyone added an ignition light to one of these before??

Jimrex... unfortunately mines a bulb mate... had it out in my hand earlier today. Weird some are LED and some are bulb... Really obviously yellow too. I'll take a pic when i get a chance, but definitely a bulb (unfortunately for me!!)

Jim-rex... I am going to avoid the cheap ones... I've been looking on www.hids-direct.co.uk and they seem to have some good ones... Do you think Cree Led's be too bright for the interior/puddle lamps??

and overhead ambient lighting?? I don't even know what that is... but i'm interested! lol What do you mean??

Not too bothered about the brake calipers yet, although I must admit Pree's blue ones do look amazing!

Thanks for the advice/recommendations!

Pree, I just swapped the Sony radio unit over myself... everything seems to work perfectly, I much prefer the look of the Sony radio and despite having not changed the speakers I think it sounds better too!

If a Sat-Nav unit had become available, I would've gone for one of those, but i'm not too bothered as i really like the Tom-Tom on my phone... but I guess a 5in screen would've just been nicer anyway!!

Dave, cheers for the link... i'll definitely have a look through that!
