I would be interested in the LED bits but only if they don't come up with a warning message. Let me know.

Thanks for the comments, the LEDs do not cause the warning lights to come on as the computer does not monitor interior bulbs if you see what I mean. So no problems on that front.
There is also no need to 'mod' any of the fittings as they all come with adaptors and fit back into its original housing with no bits hanging out as such, with the exception of the boot light as I wanted a bigger LED plate so I have taped the LED plate to the outside of the housing rather than putting it back in.

I must say the Fuel Cap mod was not excatly difficult, but was not really what I would call easy either. It was a pain to get the old bowl and fuel hose out as you are just worried that you might damage something on a 3 week old car. Theres a annoying bit with the locking mechanisim, which isnt difficult but just fiddly.

I would not suggest to try this if you have not changed anything on your car before, but with some knowledge you should be fine.

Are all the interior lights the same size of bulb?
