If anybody is interested talking about the subject of interior lighting - I have found it quite annoying that there is no boot light so I have bought the cheap stick on lights like you can put under your cupboardds in your kitchen. I bought 2 (led) 1 for each side of the boot and as they are self adhesive they are very easy to fit. now the boot is floodlit at night and it only cost about £5 to do (Home bargains led lights and batteries as well)!!!


Somebody mentioned this to me either on this site or the equivalent citigo site and what a good idea it was - might be worth you all considering!!!

Fitted a triple LED lamp with motion sensor a few weeks ago. When I say fitted I mean stuck it on the N/S inner wheel arch! Cost me about £6 from Tesco - money well spent.

there there I bet it is nice and cosy in there with your floodlit boot. what exactly have you got in there that is so important to see in the dark.

Thanks, useful tip. Re uncle chunk's comment, sometimes shopping bags move around in the boot and a few things roll out. It's useful to be able to check you've got everything.

That was Jan 2013! is it still a success? If so, which did you buy, please?

Reason for asking is that I bought the OSRAM LED fitting (£9.99) and it was a failure as the batteries lasted a couple of weeks only. After two sets of batteries I investigated. I found that the lights went on every time I used the car at night. Despite parcel shelf being in place, and being fitted exactly where VW now place the factory-fitted unit, it sensed my presence so stayed ON. (However, it works fine in the house as a staircase nightlight. Batteries last 6 months or so).
