Default Does anyone sell logoed puddle lights?

My puddle lights are washed out and I'd like to replace them, ideally just the disc. I have the Rover logo on my puddle lights.
Does anyone do them?

Not found anything on the net.
I know where they came from but lets no go there

Just for anyone else interested, I've been asked quite a few times recently if I'll be offering puddle lights. I've looked into this and found a company that can do battery operated puddle light units with any logo. Battery operating units I think would be the best option as hard wiring ones are quite involved when it comes to fitting. It requires the removal of door cars, and it's a pain to run the wiring from the doors to the courtesy light, the front doors have to be removed to do this. The battery operated units stick to the inside of the door cards and detect when a door is open with a magnet.

I'll order a trial set over the next month or so and will test them out on my ZT-T and will report back

I doubt these will be the type you are looking for, but eBay used to do replacements

THESE are for the non hard wired type.

Could they be wired in with the LED kick plates Rick?
