Interior Central Light & Boot light

I'm sure this has been asked and answered somewhere on Fiat Forum but after a quick search found nothing useful.

All I want to know is what type of bulb is used in the central interior light and boot light. I'm looking to get some much brighter ones, as they have always irritated me how dim the standard ones are. I would like to know Any types of bulbs/lights which people have used or know of...

Thanks

Re: Interior Central Light & Boot light

For the boot, it should be very easy to swap for a LED panel light. You can buy them on ebay (from Hong Kong) for a few quid. They even come with a variety of different bulb connectors - enabling a straight plug and play fit. And they have a sticky pad back!!

Get really creative and it isn't much more work to add a second to the opposite side of the boot - like daylight!

Not sure about the Fiats, but for the Blue Ovals, it is essy enough to replace the interior lights with SMD LED panels too (designed direct fit).

I'm pretty sure it is easy enough to find direct replacement LED "bulbs".

LED does sound the way to go - as you obviously don't want to use more WATTS ,

LEDS will give more light for lower WATTS,
