Hi Guys & Girls
Sorry, I know there are other threads on this topic, but most are S1 cars or early S2's
Bulb info on the forum was vague, so started again.
2018 onwards are 921 push fit (NOT Bayonet fit) So, found some on Amazon, easy to fit, no canbus errors
Is it worth doing other than for white light ? YES !! If you actually have to reverse the car, the standard bulbs are pretty poor

Very pleased 馃榿馃憤

Wow! Looks pretty awesome actually.
I have a reverse light out so could do with a change however my up! is the pre-facelift. Do you know the bulb type and if I can get them in LED form?

Hi Custard,
For Mk1 cars the reversing light is R10W (12V):

Searching for 'R10W LED' on the usual sites turns up a range of options, including this one (just watch out for the 24V versions):

P.S. Full bulb list for Mk1s here. ;)

Yes - definitely a good idea. I have replaced all rear bulbs on my 2018 up with LEDs and they are brighter & use less power. Stop/tail ones needed minor surgery but no errors or problems (for the past 6 months).
