    No problem! I've had that one for about a year and it's been great, much better than the bulb I bought off eBay before it which eventually failed.

    Very, there's a small flap on the inside of the boot hatch door, and then you just have to release a few clips to get the bulb holder unit out. Only thing to remember is that LEDs are polarity-specific so if it doesn't work the first time, you might need to rotate the bulb 180 degrees.

    The rear indicators (for pre-facelift) are a harder task but still not so bad as long as you're careful, there's a guide on these forums for those.

    Well just finished installing the led bulbs in the interior of my car & have to say WOW what a difference they make.
    I did not use any tools other than a flat head screwdriver very carefully i might add for the most part.
    I did have an issue with the front welcome lights but more to do with my fat fingers than anything else, had to remove the whole unit as i took off the reflector strip and could not get it back in properly until i removed the whole unit but only 2 screws and sorted now.
    Many thanks for all the links for bulbs & info supplied in this thread.

    Just to clarify do the new Cupra 290 copra's have led's all round?

    For example are number plate, fogs etc led.

    Yes all facelifts are, apart from reverse bulb.

    Cool, I suppose because it's too bright.

    More likely just a cost-saving move, plenty of other new cars (even from the VAG brands) have reverse LEDs.

    Easy enough to replace yourself anyway.
