Yes, typo. The cheap eBay ones are 6500K. The konik ones definitely looks white instead of blue. Can see photos from my previous posts.

Yep I remember those photos and it looked great, that's why when browsing the konik website I though what you had was a product no longer available.
I think I'm just going to bite the bullet with some ebay ones and see how they look.
I cant stand the blueish colour so I'm not really confident but for the price it's worth a shot.
Pity the osram or Philips ones are the only festoon available in 4000k...at almost 15-20 dollar per globe though

Finally got to change most of the lights and installed led. Had to wait to go back to Europe to find some cheap ones lol.
Found the Philips led 4000k and 6000k for parking license plate and puddle lights.
One question though. The glove box light and the two footwell lights.....how the hell do we get to them?? Is it possible at all to change them?

All the foot well lights (front and back) are already LEDs and are orange in colour by design to aid night vision and ease eye strain. It is part of the red LED in the roof console.

As for the glovebox light, I have no idea as I have tried without luck, even with instructions from others.

So RE the footwell lights, you mean they cannot be changed?

The glovebox one is annoying just for the fact that comes on only if the headlights (or parking lights at least) are on. Otherwise it stays off.
And that's very silly IMHO, even in my wife's kia the light comes on automatically when the glovebox is opened regardless of the "main" lights.

Ehi guys, not interior lights related but....i got some jw speaker t20 led from autobarn and installed them as reverse light, thinking and hoping that they would be better than the oem halogen ones.

Now, the led looks obviously brighter, but im not that happy with the amount of light they give me.
The halogen looks like has got a better and more uniform output.
I would say defo more lumens, but less lux.
Look at the photo from the back of the paj, the led beam struggles to light the sewer grate

Has anybody else here done the swap? What do you think?

Hi Vlad,
I can't remember what sort of bulb is in the mirror, I just bought one of those kits on ebay for a pajero, with various led bulbs to suit.
I have a NS super exceed, with indictors in the mirror as well as the downlight. Kinda scary as you have to pull the mirror glass off its connector to access the bulb, I thought it was going to break & I have only done the driver's side, never quite got around to doing the passengers or was I worried it may break? There are some instructions in the factory manual if you're concerned how to go about it.
If you have interior lights than dim down before turning off, the LED replacement will flicker rather than dim down nicely.

cheers

Mirror is easy to remove with a flat head screwdriver. Harder to remove the approach lamp bulb. Have to use a pair of pliers to twist it. As for dimming, depends on LED. Better ones have so called smoothing circuitry so it dims nicely. Need ones with PWM.
