Newbie says Hello.

Hi, decided to spend some of my pension pot on a 2016(66) 1.6 petrol auto B-Max Titanium X . Took a chance and went for an automatic (touchwood... the auto box seems to be behaving itself, although their appears to be no indication that it's ever had it's clutch pack replaced). I opted for the B-Max for it's ease of access, versatility and general roominess. The only change I've made to the car since I've got it is to replace all the interior lighting with LEDs.

Hello and welcome. Good to see you are aware of the Auto box problems. Give it a good test if you have a warranty to fall back on. Good luck with your new car.

Hi.... replaced the front reading lights, rear interior light, and boot light with cool white 5w C5W type LED bulbs. Replaced the front central interior light with a cool white W5W type LED bulb.

If you like replacing bulbs, the one thing the B Max needs is decent headlight bulbs. Some are using halogen replacements. I'm not sure whether you can use LEDs
