Hi Guys,

I'm looking to fit 2 downlights 2 the soffit on my garage to light up infront of the garage door and to also look "pretty" :oops:

Any advice available would be good i.e what type of downlights are best to use 240v or 12v, recommended wattages, is there specific lights for this or can i use any downlight?

Install shower downlights which have a minimum IP rating f IPX4. I would also advise the use of 240v 11watt Megaman compact fluorescent GU10 lamps.
