    Default TD5 to Puma lights upgrade

    Can anyone tell me if it is possible to upgrade a 2003 TD5 rear brake lights, indicator lights etc. to the new LED Puma lights without too much hassle and ballasts etc.

    Hey.....thanx "buddy"

    My Fire Ltd Edition comes standard with those and I think it is much better than those small "pimples" on the normal Pumas/Defenders.....

    yes, those are standard lights on Puma except for being clear and not orange. Swambo drove behind me in heavy rain and could not see the standard indicators clearly. So for safety I have decided to 'upgrade'!

    No, it's not standard Puma lights. Only the limited / special edition ones have them.

    I would suggest getting yours checked out as I have had the opposite comments regarding my indicators and rear lights in the rain...... (i have the standard pimples as Regard calls them) This past weekend I was told by a mate of mine that he couldnt believe how effective my little lights were on the landy.......it was raining very heavily at the time.
