    Wondering if anyone has changed their interior bulbs to LEDs? My boot light seems really dull and having young kids I've always got stuff to go in there!
    cheers for any info you can give,

    Do you know what type of bulb you have in the boot?

    It has a 12v 8w bulb. The one with pointy metal caps at each end!

    Festoon.
    I used the 30mm on my 8th Generation Accord. Check the size and then these are similar to the ones I used.

    Cheers Nels, they are the type I've been looking at! Were they much better than stock when you did your Accord?

    They give out a whiter, brighter light. (Well that's how it appears to me)
    I've changed almost all the interior lights in my cars.

    This is an old guide for a 7th Generation Accord, but it does show the difference on the interior light.

    Think I will do this, I recently messed around with that back light and ended up with a flat battery for my trouble (....idiot!)

    Usually one of the first things I do is replace all the interior lighting (except dash) with led's, some like the festoon that Nels listed also had good luck with things like cob panel 12v led in Vehicle Parts and Accessories | eBay they come in all kinds of sizes and give a lot of light. Most have all the fittings for adjustable festoon, wedge, and bayonet fittings.

    Got the LEDs yesterday and fitted them last night, well happy with them! A lot brighter Than stock bulbs and a very white light as apposed to the sightly yellow you get from the stock bulbs!
