Lol nope youll be the first bro. Let us know.



































yeah people have done it, I have as well. 42mm 5050 festoon is what you want. Buy them from china and get 10 of each. They are cheaper and the same as the USA ones. In the end the all come from china. You will also want the 6 SMD version for the sides of the domes and then for the center bulb you will want the 9 SMD version.

So get 42mm Festoon bulbs in both 6 SMD and 9 SMD. The 6 SMDs are for the map lights ( outer bulb ) and the 9 SMD is for the center bulb

I know this is a late post but if you are still interested i went to my local electronics store and bought some LED mini light bars for 2$ each and replaced the factory bulbs with them. i got white and they are decently bright and last a long time. Let me know if you want pics.

I got mine from DDMTUNING and then grabbed some cheaper ones off eBay. Very bright and have been flawless for a year now
The smaller ones went in the spots for the map lights, the ones you have to turn on and larger one went in dome light

Guys, what does the 6/9 SMD mean? Is that like how many of the little square light panel looking things there are on each light? Having a hard time finding orange ones, I found some orange ones on eBay but they are 41mm 6 SMD, will those work for the middle bulb and the 2 sides?

Here are my experiences...

LED Interior Lamp Upgrade

The more LED's you can cram on there, the happier you will be.

I would use minimum 6x5050 SMD LED bulbs. The ones with 9x5050 would be a bit brighter.

I used 39mm for my front map/dome lights, and the center bulb in my rear dome light. The rear map lights however need a little bit bigger bulb, I think. You would probably be good all around with 41mm festoon bulbs.

I bought all mine off Ebay... cheapest place you will find them. They all come from China anyway, so you may as well buy them direct.
