If you want to brighten up the interior, switch to a hyper white 194 bulbs in the 4 overhead lights. I changed mine over and it makes a huge difference. You can use the colored LED's, but i've found it's a bit harder to read maps/directions/etc. with them. Change the fronts first and you'll see how much nicer they look and how more defined the colors on the inside are. Somone in here even rigged it up so he has colored ones run off a switch, so he is still able to use the stock lighting.

I replaced all my interior and dash bulbs with 194cp blue blubs. the dash brighter at night, and the blue interior lights are easyer on the eyes when reading a map at night, or if the wife wants to read while driving.

I think i bought them out of Summit, but you could find a ton of them on Ebay if you wanted to go cheaper. I can't recall the brand name, but any good company should do. Hey prevostbus, how hard was it to switch those bulbs in the dash? Would like to match them up with the neons under my dash.

Hell yeah! Me too!! Well, just the back ones since I still haven't installed my OTIS. Makes a world of a difference though! Since the front ones are still stock, the back seat lights up so much brighter and "cleaner".

Correct me if i'm wrong but if you put LED lights in the interior won't they not have a problem dimming after you close the doors after getting in?

Umm, got me?! I have all blue courtesy lights. They look pretty sweet but I want to replace them with Street Glow "mini-neons" which I think would look a lot better. Plus I love neon.

The bulbs for the dash lights are held to the base with solider.
1) you remove the solider the blub will easly pull out from the base.
2) Now push the contacts out of the base
3) straighten the leads on the bulb, slide it into the base.
4) Push the contacts back into the base and bends the leads over the contacts

The LED's dim just like any other bulbs, it's still getting the same voltage drop when the doors are closed. Thanks Prevo, i might have to try that next time i strip my interior down.
