As you may know.. the mk3's interior light bulbs are much different than other cars.

Does anybody know what they are called?!?

Because i wanted some white LED ones... which i ordered (Looked the same in the pic) but they were half the size lol.. But they were from china and only cost 50p so i gave them to a friend instead of taking them back haha.
I got BA9S ones. What ones do i need?
:)

Got them today woop woop! Put them in, they fitted perfectly.
However...
They don't work. So i put the old ones back in.. it lit up! So put the LED ones back in and nothing.. :S
Confused much. I'm gunna try them on my reverse/ fog lights later and see if they work.

Tried them in my reverse light socket and they worked fine... i recon it's to do with the low wattage. So the car somehow thinks the lamps have blown so for safety isolated the circuit.
