    I saw those superbrightleds too.But I'm reading mixed reviews about both sites.Some say they last a long time,other that they burn out in some cases after 2 days,in some after a couple of months.

    Did not read into this too much, but make sure you use a current limiting resistor in the circuit. Without it, it'll work, but won't last long normally. It might already be in the circuit though, just a thought if not.

    Another great LED maker is v-leds.com. I had them outfitted in my BMW. That thing took all 194s and they offer a 2w 194 bulb......unbelievably bright. Definitely would recommend them.

    DINGGGGG... I be chimin lol

    I've been buying products from superbright for YEARS now.. never ever had one go bad or any dissatisfaction with any of their products once I got them in hand. I'm not sure they still sell the model led I have in mine but here's some pics


    led mounted in dome light


    color tone difference between led and standard bulb




    map light location


    The factory light is a DE3175 however a 3022 will also fit. (31mm length) Now I had to do some careful and slight creasing of the bulb end cones to get the bulb holders to hang on to the dome light unit.. the map lights just fit right in.

    So far, they work in all temps.. they work absolutely perfect with the factory dimming effect and if you turn on both map lights+ the dome light its about bright as the sun (as anyone who got a look at the car in the dark last year at cretin fest can attest to) There's no way in hell I could loose anything in this car at night, black interior or not.

    These are similar to what I bought
    3022-xHP4 High Power LED Festoon Bulb Specifications
    Got em in "cool white" color.

    I'm quite sure they'll out last the car.

    I bought an LED 31mm festoon light for the door light (not map light) and it's dull as an over-ripe banana. (too buzzed to think of a better one)

    6 LED's I assumed it would be bright. Cool super-white color, but I should buy from superbright next time I upgrade my map lights.

    Yessir.. though the exact models I bought aren't available any more. Not sure why. Have a look around their site man there's a whole load of neat stuff on there from car stuff to house stuff to diy.

    Do your license plate ones light the ground much? I think it's only a matter of time before I get stopped about mine...

    Hmm,I didn't think about that.Its been raining too hard for me to get a good look,but then again the 2011 hatch has the rear plate above the bumper & not as low as the 05 so I don't think its a problem.But I'll check.
