New LED Footwell Lights Installed

So, I tinkered with the LED interior lights today on my '06 R52 JCW MINI. I got my LED footwell lights the other day, figured I would like to see how they work......MAN, what a difference......the first pic shows the different style lights I have here, regular #194 bulb, flat LED light, and the new 18 LED light with housing at the top. The trunk light is the same as the footwell lights, at least on my 2006 car, so I put the new LED housing in there also.....these photos have not been edited or adjusted.....these new LED housings are really bright

The puddle light housings are the same as the footwell lights, I'm still waiting for those to arrive, will post pics of those when installed as well

(I just ordered another set of footwell lights for my '04 R53......I knew I was gonna like these)

Oops.....sorry......my 3 working brain cells are fried.....wife spent 5 days in hospital last week for surgery.....trying to keep her on house arrest and a short leash

Anyway, link to what I bought is below....came from eBay overseas......now I know there are other vendors that are USA based, and if you look at the auction, nowhere does it say it fit's the MINI.....I looked at these lights that specifically say they are for MINI, but prices were 2 to 3 times more.....so I did a little research, and found a number of these lights on eBay that are for BMW, the lights are the same as the MINI.....at least some are, you have to be careful and make sure the electrical wire pins are the same as our cars....some of these light housings have the two little electrical pins a little farther apart.......

There are a number of these lights on eBay.....just be careful about the pins

I got one pair of my puddle lights today.....doesn't look all that bad, although the wings are not purple like shown in the eBay listing.....

I'm waiting for the other pair that I have ordered to come in.....when those arrive, will post a picture as well.....the second set has a John Cooper Works badge inside the large circle
