Previous owner of my Fortwo fitted a led festoon to the interior lamp (& cracked it in the process  ???) Though it's far brighter in use than a normal filament lamp, it never quite goes out ..... it's always glowing slightly.

It 'should' work, the interior lights are dimmed on/off so its dependent on what the mosfet driver thinks of the active load

Thanks. I did read I would loose the dim feature with LED, but not fussed at that.

Might pop down Halfords during the week with the trade card!


I bought mine from Ebay for about 1 each; the Omega uses a combination of 36 and 39mm festoon bulbs for the puddle lamps, boot lamp, rear courtesy lamps and number plate lamps. I don't remember what went where as they're fit and forget. The front courtesy lamp and map lights use 501 bulbs like the sidelights; I found these to be a bit more fussy as the ones I was given didn't work. All of the others I've bought since do, and they dim correctly which was a surprise.
The Omega interior light comes in 2 different forms (actually more, but just 2 for this conversation), so anyone buying for Omegas, double check first :)

Just put an LED light in boot of the 3.2, wow! Huge, huge difference. Completely illuminating the boot now, should have done this ages ago. Will swap out others now
