yep - get either coloured bulbs (narva or someone may have them) or get the condom covers to fit over them. i'm looking to get white ones for mine, as opposed to the yellowish glow - if thats at all possible! :?

ditto, you get much more light and a more even spread

Igreed the neons probably provide better coverage and more light. That said, if you are going to just stick with the globes. DO NOT use the condoms, they give a sickening, washout greenish look. It is definitely worth getting the LED globes. They slot straight in, and give a good strong colour.

Neons, more expensive better look.

I have a neon in each footwell as well as two leds per door, leds for dome light and lights for the rear. White leds compliment them for the people sitting in the front.

I agree, stay well away from those Narva connie covers! I've got them in the 'mont and the blue ones come up a turqoisey green colour :x

Just out of interest, how have you guys hooked up the neons in your footwells? Are teh connected so they dim with the rest of the courtesy lights? I've been wanting to do this mod properly for a while, but haven't known how to go about it.

Cheers,
Julza

Since my car already had lights in the footwells, I simply attached the neons to those connectors and rob's your uncle.

ive just got a four way cigerette lighter plug ($5.00 from super cheap auto) and stashed it under the dash. plug the neons in, phone charger and gps. works well. i will hard wire the neons to the doors eventually.
