Here's a short video on replacing the reverse bulbs with LEDs. Not so much of a dramatic improvement compared with the indicator swap, but still worth doing. As well as looking a little better, this mod should benefit the reverse camera.

Very nice! Can you see any difference at night? Can you make another DIY video about replacing licence plate conversion to LED? Thank you :)

Not sure if it's a good idea to make the license plate more visible ;)

Not tested night time vision with it yet.

Thanks for this Garth. You’re building a nice collection of tutorial videos.

Maybe they could be sticky’s on the forum at some point?
The sticky section is growing, we’re looking in the next week or so at unsticking the ones that have ‘cooled off’ so to speak, just keeps the sticky section filled with vital info and uncluttered.

These videos are cracking and I fear could get lost in the body/styling section, so we’ll look at putting up a ‘how to’ section and moving them specifically to there so they remain easy to find and fit purpose.

Keep up the great vids @Garth, much appreciated by all!

Agreed!

How to sections are great and can be updated on the same thread if a new/better product becomes available.

Those are the correct bulbs...However... when i received mine from Amazon the box contained totally different ones... which were more like the indicator LED`s in shape and fitting.

I contacted the seller who told me to keep those.. and he would send me the correct ones...they arrived Saturday and are correct.

I don't pick up mine until Tuesday morning then it's going straight for PPF fitting.. .So won't get the chance to do it until the weekend .. All i can say at the moment is that .. i can see no reason why they would be any different for the UK market.

I’ll tell you tomorrow for definite mate, I’ve got them in the house ready to fit! I’m going to say that @Garth is bang on the money though!

I got the T15-1000LM, but I would guess that the other would work also, just brighter.

Paul, did you fit those indicator leds? All good on the UK model?

I’m just about to order a set.....
