NC Boot lid lights - why are they white?

2006 NC.  

On the underside of my boot lid, there’s two white lights, initially I assumed they were extra boot lights, but they’re not on that circuit.  They come on with the lights.  I’m confused, as if they’re on with the lights and only visible when the boot is open at the rear of the car, shouldn’t they be red? Am I missing something or perhaps have they been modded?





they illuminate the number plate

Facepalm to self!



Made me chuckle

Hadn’t realised how far back they came when the lid was down :frowning:

Don’t worry about it,  you knew enough to buy one. 

That’s the important thing
