Hi Fruity.

I got my larger bulbs from Ebay . Obviously, I didn't know at the time, so I ordered the 2.6w, but you definitely need the 2.2w. Also, I didn't check what wattage the smal bulbs were, but the ones I used were 1.2w and these are definitely available from Halfords complete with the holder, or you can get them from any car spares shop (bulb only or both if you want). The good thing about the Renaults is that the holders are reusable unlike some other cars which need desoldering and resoldering of the bulb if you want to use the same holder.

Interestingly though, the larger bulb and holder costs £8 from the dealers and the small one costs £5... you won't pay any such sum from your local spares / ebay - you'll probably get the whole set for less than a fiver bulbs only (small bulbs are 50p each I think if that)
