Gentlemen,

Have several questions:

1. Is this a B7 model or something else?
2. What is the type of bulb originally fitted in the car for the revering/backup light? Halogen?
3. Can hardly see anything at the back at night when reversing with the original bulbs. Would like to change them to brighter bulbs. Recommendations? LED?
4. If LED, can I just replace the originals with LED bulbs or do I need a kit of some sort? What will be the recommended wattage or lumens of the LED bulbs so I do not overheat and burn out the light casing?

Thanks very much for sharing your knowledge!

Be aware if you put in LED bulbs you will get an error code that your bulbs are burned out. There are bulbs available which are especially made for CANBUS systems to eliminate the error code.
