Hi All,

2 wks till we get the car :-)

Looking at upgrading the lights. Are the xtrails canbus or not?

As the car already has xenons. Looking at led number plate. Uprate the full beam and sidelights.

What size bulbs will I need and any suggestions?

The same goes for the interior?

Thanks in advance, Rappy

Hi Rappy,

For my interior I used these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/White-T10-BA9 ... 4170270988 the 48 SMD LED's fit just about perfect in all 3 cabin lights.

Hi Rappy. I have fitted the same lights as Andy. Interior so bright now. All 3 easy to fit. Literally a 5min job. Pop the lens cover off, put the corresponding dummy bulb in after removing the old one , plug the led board into the connecting block from dummy bulb, test it and if it works wrong way round turn the dummy bulb round.

Cheers. Martyn.

They are plug and play. Very simple to fit. I used 48 for the back and middle and 24 for the front.

Some pics below.

Kind Regards,

Eoin

Thanks guys. They look great :-):-). Did you order all from the same seller?

Also, I think there was lights in the doors. What have you used there?.

Is there footwell lights?

Thats the interior sorted. What bulbs are best for sidelights? & number plate lights.
Also full beam? Not forgetting fog lights & Safari lights?

Thanks again,

Rappy

Hi Rappy,

Try Deal Extreme. Dx.com If you need to know bulb fit ament sizes, type your reg into Micksgarage.com and you'll find them all. Type the same bulb type + LED into DX and you'll find what you are looking for.

Kind Regards,

Eoin

Thanks once again Eoin for your help.

Have you replaced any other lights in yours?

Hi Rappy,

Just the interior so far. Bought LED fogs on DX for my Legacy to match the factory Xenons. Must install them one of these days. Gave them a battery test and they are super white and bright.

Just check the UK law before you upgrade and make sure you are compliant when swapping exterior bulbs.

Kind Regards,

Eoin
