Puma and Canbus friendly leds…

I have spent a lot of time trying various leds in my Puma, and have decided eventually to try canbus friendly leds. I then found some Cree type ones that were canbus friendly and have decided that they appear to offer the best price to performance and hopefully not blow after 3-6 months 😉

Problem is I then had to find some canbus friendly leds for the rear number plate light as they have to be under about 30mm long…. thankfully I’ve found some of those and ordered them too!!! I will report back shortly as long as they last a bit longer than non canbus friendly ones!

The ones I bought are are from Ebay in the following auctions

Sidelight LED’s again!

I have recently had to replace my sidelight LED’s again due to them flickering and then blowing and have decided to go down a slightly different route by using Canbus friendly LED’s. These have a resistor and are supposed to be much longer lasting due to voltage variations on the Puma! Shall see how I get on and let you know, but at 99p delivered for 2 bulbs they’re cheap enough. Also found that The Range do the dashlight bulbs that blow if you replace them with led’s for £1 and you get 2! (enough for both dash lights)
