for high power one, will let you know once i decide on which one to use exactly.
for 12V use this WIRELESS HIGH POWER 6 AMP REMOTE CONTROL KIT CAR/12V : eBay Motors (item 350062399455 end time May-10-10 21:27:41 PDT)

Using this product you can turn any 12V device on and off from remote.

Useing 2 LEDs in series and a current limiting resister looks cheapest option for you. If you use 2 LEDs, power disspated on resister as heat will be less and you get more overall light. Also can looking at using a simple constant current circuit around LM317 . The constant current source modules costing Rs.650 upwards are quite expensive on a DIY project i feel.

Just for show, there is no use for fog lights in Chennai.

Hi!
I would like to change the cabin light in my Zen to white LED's. I want to get maximum light inside the cabin with this DIY. Can somebody guide me please as to what all I require for this? What "mm" LED's and all?

How many LED's and of what specs?

Price is not an issue.

I am thinking of using 12 white LEDs 3 in parallel with 1 56ohm resistor for three LEDs. Is it suitable? I want very bright leds, would this suffice?
