Damn, glad you're ok. Damage not too terrible for spinning out on the Autobahn it seems. At least you didn't lose the whole car.

I swapped most of my incandescent bulbs to led (these work well if anyone is interested)

Two in the hatch, one in each dome light and one in each side mirror for the puddle lights and . Much brighter/whiter than the yellowish incandescent bulbs. Puddle lights made a big difference when parked in a dark place. Same for the trunk..I rarely ever turn the dome lights on but its hella bright in the cabin when i turn them on now

I learned something new too; the ST came with an LED license plate light...and that its not easily replaceable. Its not as white or bright as the bulbs I used in the rest of the car but apparently it's hard wired/non-serviceable (unless you want to cut and wire up something.) At least its an LED already but i might tackle that project once its warmer outside, just so the colors match

Was this in a MK3? Stupid question but I assume so.

I was thinking about doing the full interior, but like yourself, I never turn on the lights other than the colored LEDs.

I've only replaced my Reverse Lights. Don't want to have to deal with the hassle of splicing in relays on Turn Signals/Brake Lights. If they were plug and play? Perfect. But most are universal.

Agree, could’ve been 10x worse.
