Almost as dismal as the stock interior dome light is the stock boot light. This takes a very small Festoon style light, around 28mm or so, which is very small and explains why it’s so pathetically dim.
I found a 30mm LED festoon light at Canadian Tire for $12.99, which really brightens things up and matches the colour temperature of my new interior light. It was a tight fit, but I found that I could bend the tabs back to accommodate it easily enough.
A nice, cheap upgrade that makes a big difference. You can buy yours by clicking here:
The days are getting shorter as the year goes on, which has made me increasingly aware of just how pathetic the single little yellowish interior light is in my Micra. Today, I decided to do something about it: I bought the Philips T10 twin pack LED light for $19.99. This is a direct plug-in replacement for the existing bulb.
The difference is much more dramatic in the dark.
The license plate light takes the same bulb, so I put the extra bulb there.
The same bulb is used for the parking and side marker lights; I will replace those as they burn out with these LED’s.
