Light over license number is needed for MINI Cooper and other vehicles. The standard volt feature at 12 V gives bulbs the overall capacity of 5 W. In construction of cars with motor code N16B16A produced during 2013 year there are lights over index plate. Better buy top-grade lamps for MINI Cooper 1.6 to light the index plate. The index plate light bulbs aren’t big in MINI cars with motor at 1.6 capacity. The only possible base of the bulb is BA15S SCC which suits Cooper.
