Interior Lighting Options

Recommended Posts

Hi all

im thinkning about fitting some lighting into the inside or upgrading as i had my gran in the car the other day and it was too dark for her to see anything and tbh i struggled too.

what are my options for adding a) another light in the rear b) upgrading the current bulbs to some that are more brighter c) any other ideas?

thanks

Change the front courtesy bulbs to ultra-bright white LED's, a huge difference over the standard yellow bulbs. It throws out a fair bit of light, you can even (sort of) see the back seats.

You could also install custom LED strips to the rear, or install a rear courtesy light if you don't already have one (most Focii don't).

yeah, i think a secondary light in the rear is a must - just hope it isnt a pig of a job and i dont have to cut anything....

They were very bright and lit up the interior nicely.
