I don't know the answer, but I do know a man who may be able to help you! You could try contacting Mike at New MINI Stuff, as he's bound to know or able to find out for you - he's a site sponsor here too, so you get a bit of a discount if you want to order anything (just tell him you're a member) Smile

On the R56, all the interior lights are equivalent to the sidelights fitting, which is W5W (501). The exceptions for this are the Number plate lights, and Glovebox which are both Festoon type.

As Ian says, Mikey at New MINI Stuff has the kits for all round LEDS, and I can recommend the centre ceiling light boards - they are excellent!

Many thanks for replying
Was just interested in the festoon bulb, as i have changed the front sidelight bulbs with led's
I dont think it would be fair to ask Mikey as i think that his prices are a little higher to what i can purchase the same/similar like for like festoon bulbs for and would'nt be right to ask this question,
Im not in any way knocking his quality of items he sells
But in todays day & age
Every penny saved is a great help
Once again many thanks for replys!

That's fair enough, I understand what you mean about watching the pennies Smile I am surprised nobody over on tM was able to answer your question though, somebody must know!

Is it the mm size of the base you're after, or the actual bulb itself?

Hi Ian

I think at the weekend i will have a look myself
Just guessed there has been someone who has changed them , The sooner i know the mm size the quicker i can order.
I will look at weekend and i will post up sizes for all the festoon bulbs the mini take

Hey Lee. Apologies, I can't find the records of which length bulbs I bought for my R56 when I had it.

Later in the week when I'm off the 12 hr shifts, I'lll have a look at the glovebox for you though as it'll be the same as my R56 was.

Gah, should have asked me. The footwell lights do require you to be a bit of a contortionist!

Hope you are all sorted now on interior LED's - well worth the investment!
I supplied a group buy of kits for the R56 on MINI2 and some via TotalMINI.
13 modules on the R56; less on the R57,R58 and R59.

Anyone need anything or advice..... happy to help Smile

On the clubbie you need to add a further 3 Puddle lights!

Yes this is the 13 units i feel comfortable updating.

Indicators and stop lights are much more involved/problematic.
Also looked at fog lights to DRL updates - but again problematic.

Each to their own.... the 13 mentioned are a cheap and simple mod.

Of course - the items you require are easily made up from any number of suppliers.

You can easily find these on ebay and perhaps site sponsors also offer this.
I would like to make you aware of the options only as i have already
been told that my username makes me appear as a business or site sponsor.

This is not the case. I only help out with group buys and other like-minded non-profit ventures.

PM me is you need the tech spec on each fitting, etc. I can show you the relevant ebay listings and vendors i would use (assuming thats allowed?).
