My apologies, your right. Went back and actually read the manual word for word and indeed the rear boot gate light serves as a housing for the fog lights & reverse lights plus reflectors only. Thnx.

Rice isn't part of my diet, but I kinda like the combo you have going with the paint color & the smoked lights. Do they do a traditional red & clear smoke combo? & where did you get them? (I noticed that you're another Skip.)

Also just noticed you've got the newer style wiper blades on the rear wiper ! Were they part of the 04 model series, or were they an upgrade as well?

Have you also got the same silicon wiper blades on the front? If you do, a pic pls.

thanks in advance.

mrbmwx5 link is the best, i purchased these as well. no flickering, no error. There is a socket for a set of bulbs below the reverse lights, i didnt install those though. The extreme breaking, I don't think the LEDs accommodate that.

Plus, if he didn't see you the first time you hit the breaks, it's probably too late, nothing "brighter" brake lights will fix LOL

Yep, have put the flexi-wipers on all round. The only small issue is the passenger wiper dose'nt quite shape to the windscreen. So get 50mm shorter.. I'll grab you a pic tomorrow.

I ordered the LED lights from the same seller on eBay. The lights only work when the brake pedel is pressed.

Am I missing something for when I turn on the lights why the LED's do not light up? When it is dark out I do not have my tail lights on, any suggestions?
