Just resurrecting this topic, I found the Deautokey light online (as posted above), which looks bright, but a bit expensive as it ships from the US.

Then I saw this this cheaper one, anyone fitted one of these?

I fitted a LED strip to the bottom of the parcel shelf that was suggested earlier in this thread and I was happy with it until the cold weather arrived. The strip of little LEDs kept falling off and as it was battery operated, I had to stick the battery pack into the hatch.

So I bought two of the very same LED lights and I fitted one in the hatch of my 7.5 GTi and the other in the hatch of my wife's 1.4 SE.

They are brilliant, much brighter than the original light.

Thank you, I presumed you mean you purchased the £7.99 eBay item?

I bought a pair for £9.99 from Amazon (details below). They look the same as the image from the link for ebay. They are so simple to fit. Took about 2 minutes.

I noticed that they are currently out of stock from Amazon.

This is not the exact one that I got because when I did a search there were no results.

Anyway, these look the same as the ones I bought.

Hope this helps.

Thank you.

I actually found this one, looks like the same one with 18 LEDS, looks the same, and I'm in no rush, and have ordered from China before with no issues, so bit of a bargain for half the price as the other listing.
