Yeah, I dug around to be sure, but the there was no separate pigtail or assembly for the bulb on my car.  Just installed the new "lighter" and bezel and I'm good to go.  Thanks.

If your old 12v socket did not have a separate electrical connection for the bulb, then I would not worry about the light. Even if the bulb was not connected, check to see if there is an extra connector laying around for the bulb - if missing, I would install without connecting the bulb.

Simple question...I think.  Replacing the 12 volt receptacle in my '06 R52.  Purchased the part# NMK8641 "MINI Cooper Cigarette Socket Assembly OEM Gen1 Gen2 Gen3".  It came with the bezel, socket assembly, as well as a small 12V adapter plug of some type and a bulb that's labeled "Mini Cooper Visor/Cigarette lighter Bulb".  As I remove the original socket/bezel assembly, I see no sign of the small adapter or any bulb. I'm guessing that they're not needed on my '06 convertible (NOT S, Manual Tranny)? Just extra parts as part of a generic assembly for all 3 Gen's?
