I've purchased some white LEDs for my 02 wrx sedan, and soon to purchase more. So far i've bought / installed
1) License plate
2) Dome Light
3) Map lights / Spot lights
I'm about to purchase the trunk lights to match, but I'm seeing inconsistencies in which bulb is which. Sylvania's site states that the Trunk / Cargo area light is bulb-type 912. Manual says nothing. Anyone installed new trunk lighting, and know which bulb-type it is?
I'm being careful just because Sylvania's light guide was wrong before. It states that the map/spot lights are the same as the license plate lights, which they are not. They are the same as the dome light. A little frustrating, because now i have 2 of 3 bulbs for my interior lighting (driver map and dome).
A question for the electronic masterminds: On the auto-dimming cycle of the lights, as seen when entering / exiting car, the LED's emit an audible buzzing sound. Any danger of blowing a fuse or the LED unit? I know this isn't very much information to work with, but I can't find the website of where I bought them from anymore to post specifics on the LED used or power consumption (which shouldn't be an issue going from halogen to LED bulbs).
Anyone know of 'true' white LED for the DE3175 bulb (~4700k)? So far all I can find are blue-ish ones (including the 'pure white' bulbs currently installed), in the ~6-7K color range. Going to be doing a comparison, buying some more bulbs of a different design, hopefully the buzzing will go away in the process. Also looking for more of a white-colored license plate lights. The one's from superbrightled.com are more blueish than expected, but not too blue.
Hopefully all will be well.
