I owned a Crosstrek for a little over theee years. While I had it, it was a pretty great car. I hauled over 20,000lbs. of landscaping stones in that sucker over a 2 month period.

The first big complaint I have about it is that it’s pretty unfriendly to modding. Several of my buddies had other Subaru models and they did nifty things like add cold air intakes and racing tuned computer chips. Sadly, the Crosstrek couldn’t really do any of that so I was stuck with the stock 148 horse power engine. If you’re not really into that scene, it’s a fine car.

The second complaint I have is that the MPG #s they advertise are not accurate. My car was supposed to be 26 city/32 highway. I saw a lifetime average of 23 city/27 highway. Kind of a bummer. You might consider the hybrid if it’s within your budget.

I do have another less important gripe. The CVT automatic transmission robs that car of some power. Even if you get the model with paddle shifters like I did, it just isn’t that responsive. But let’s be realistic... if you’re buying a Crosstrek that you can’t really mod, you’re probably not looking for more power in you mid-high range.

I do have some advice if you do end up going with the Crosstrek (and to be clear, besides those relatively minor gripes, it’s a great car).

  1. Buy an LED lightbulb replacement kit for it (feel free to send me a private message and I’ll get you a link to the one I bought on Amazon). The stock bulbs are incandescent lightbulbs and they just aren’t that bright. For like $15, you can make a really noticeable quality of life change to the interior lighting of that car.

  2. Get a K&N permanent air filter (once the stock filter is ready to be replaced). Not only will it pay for itself 4-5 times over the life of the car, it’ll get you a few horse power more and I realized an average of 1.5-2mpg more with that filter in.

    Anyhow, I’d be happy to answer any other questions you may have about my experience with that car. It was mostly good and I’d recommend it to someone looking at the crossover size range.

    *edit: a number of people have asked for the LED link so I figured it might be easier to post it here:

    It’s worth noting though that the kit I bought is no longer available. The one I list below is compatible with my model year of Crosstrek (2015) according to Amazon’s vehicle matching tool. I highly recommend you make use of Amazon’s vehicle matching tool that lets you put details in about your car (make/model/year). It then it tells you if the part you’re looking at is compatible with your chosen vehicle or not.

    Anyhow, here’s the link:

>Any advice? I love the bulbs but I don’t want to be a complete douche.

Thanks for being considerate. We all thank you.

>These are the ones I got:

No offense, but I took a look at these bulbs and they are literally the worst LED bulbs you can get on the market today. The placement and size of the LED chips in no way, shape, or form even approximates that of a halogen bulb's filament. The H11 LED bulb has two LED chips side-by-side, while a H11 halogen bulb has a longitudinal filament (goes up and down, not side-to-side). That's why they're jizzing light all over the place and causing people to flash you; the LED bulb doesn't even resemble the halogen bulb it replaced on a fundamental level.

>I’ve heard you can adjust the angle to make them less blinding but haven’t found any how-to guides.

You can certainly adjust your lamps downward to get rid of glare, but remember: when you adjust your headlamps down, you lose seeing distance. Think of how a cop can shine his flashlight in your face. That's all glare right there. He can certainly adjust his flashlight down and reduce glare for you, but he'd be less able to see further in the distance and less able to see your face. There's a trade-off between glare and seeing distance. Choosing proper halogen bulbs helps you maximize seeing distance while minimizing glare.

>My night time visibility is fantastic.

No offense but that's what you think. The reality is that LED bulbs don't actually improve nighttime visibility. What LEDs do is flood the foreground (10 to 26 feet in front of your vehicle) with light, and this creates the perception that your lights are great. In reality, light 10-26 feet in front of any car is useless unless driving at 5 MPH or below.

>Several different LED replacement bulb kits, each designed to replace a conventional 55-W H11 halogen bulb, were purchased and tested in three different low-beam headlight units. [...] These findings suggest that using after-market LEDs to replace halogen bulbs can compromise headlighting performance.

I'll summarize the study if you don't have access: The researchers purchased 9 different LED bulbs from Amazon, and some of them look pretty much identical to the ones you got. They put these 9 different LED bulbs in 3 different headlamps--two reflectors and one projector.

And guess what?

It was a bloodbath.

27/27 LED bulb+headlamp combinations failed a very basic and limited test of glare and seeing distance. 27/27 LED bulbs+headlamp combinations created excessive glare, less seeing distance, or both versus a basic halogen bulb.


My best advice to you is to remove the LED bulbs, send them back to Amazon for a full refund, and swap in high-performance halogen bulbs to a) reduce glare and b) increase seeing distance. Do you have sealed beams? You said it was an older truck. If you have sealed beams, then there are plenty of legitimate LED headlamp options out there--none of this Auxbeam crap.

The rubber dust cover makes it a really tight fit. The heat sink is actually about half way into the rubber and is touching it.


I left the lights on for 2 minutes and the heat sink is already hotter than hell itself.


Could it start a fire if I'm driving for 1 hour with the headlights on?

I just put these in my 2018. No word on longevity as they've only been in there two days but they look nice and weren't expensive.

Low Beam

u/martyvt12 · 6 pointsr/Frugal

This is what happens when HID bulbs get old; they will get worse over time. You probably just need new bulbs. You can buy them on Amazon. Look at youtube for videos on how to do it, and decide whether you feel like you can do it yourself. If not, find a local shop that can do it, probably much cheaper than the dealer.

(A housing is the entire module containing all the lenses, reflectors, etc. Unless there is physical damage to it, you shouldn't need to replace it.)

u/Noo_Worries_ · 6 pointsr/fordfusion

Nether out of the 5 LED headlights I’ve experimented with have an error code. The “BeamTech LED’s” are literally the cheapest durable LED bulbs you can buy which gives a decent beam pattern👇

Don't buy anything at deautokey. You're going to pay a 4x markup for absolutely no reason. Find the bulbs you need, and look on Amazon. I used these for my car and they had every bulb I needed minus the footwell and trunk ones.

u/Praises_GabeN · 5 pointsr/Honda

I hated how the yellow light from my halogens clashed with the white LED fogs. Decided to try some LEDs I found on Amazon:

They work great in the projectors and produce plenty of light on the road compared with the halogens. They also don't seem to have any shadowing issues I've ran into with HID kits in the past.

u/joshcb7 · 5 pointsr/prius

I purchased these a few months ago. I'd say their output is similar to halogen, maybe a touch more. Definitely no where near their advertised 8000lm - which is ideal for me. Simply install and adjust your headlights vertically down a turn or two and golden. Cut off is great, don't blind oncoming drivers, and looks good, too!

u/hpeng · 4 pointsr/subaru

I depends on what types of hellas you're getting. They have both fog lights and driving lights for the 500 series(ones I have). The fogs have a more dissipated beam pattern so it doesn't blind oncoming traffic, while the driving light are equivalent to high-beams. I installed the 500ff (clear lens) driving lights on the roof rack cross-member because I already have fog lights and so i can aim the beams further down the road. Many states make it illegal to install lights above your headlights though, but its usually not heavily enforced. I made mine removable so if I do get pulled over I can detach it and hopefully only give me a warning. Hopefully that helps.

These are the ones i have, and these are the fog light version. They used to be made in Germany, then Mexico and now the current ones are made in India(heard that the quality dropped but its still decent). Personally I wouldn't want to use the switch they give you if your'e wiring them up independently from your headlights, its crap. I ended up buy a second fog light switch to wire up to run them.

heres an album of what I did with my lights.

u/BoredDellTechnician · 4 pointsr/Miata

Congratulations on getting an ND. If you are getting one with a manual transmission don't look at anything other than the Club or Club Brembo trim levels, as those are the only ones that come with a limited slip differential.


If you are going to be buying a used ND, be sure to read over the threads pertaining to roof and transmission issues on the early model cars. The TSB's put out by Mazda also give good guidelines as to what to look for. You should be okay buying a early year used car as long as you look over the known wear points on the roof and check the build date on the transmission.


The following is a good basic list of items that any ND owner could install that would be enjoyable upgrades as stand alone upgrades or as a starting point for further modifications dependent on intended use.


3M Invisible Bra for the front bumper. Can't stress this enough, this car eats rocks to the face like crazy...

Stubby Antenna, stock one looks like a RC car antenna

Interior dome light and trunk light LEDs

Reverse light LEDs

Side marker and license plate light LEDs

Wheel Spacers if you intend to keep the stock wheels, Stock wheels are very sunk into the wheel well and look strange from the factory.

Sway bars, the stock bars are very thin and allow LOTS of body roll. Of all the parts that I listed, only the front sway bar has a high degree of difficulty to install assuming you have basic mechanical skills.


Stock exhaust is very anemic, recommend some muffler choices based on if you are looking for a more refined but quiet exhaust or something louder and more exotic. Don't bother with midpipe unless you are looking at headers as well. Cold air intakes for the ND have been proven to do absolutely nothing via dyno testing.


HKS Legamax Premium. More on the quiet side, gets louder with a great refined sound as it breaks in.


Roadster Sport Race. Loudest exhaust but still okay to daily drive. Has an exotic sound.


Also, I Just had the Innovated Dynamics spoiler in your picture delivered. FYI, Jose the guy that makes these is known for long delays and not answering emails /phone calls. If you order one of these spoilers don't expect to see it for 4 to 6 weeks. I'll post up some pictures once it is painted and mounted.


I have more upgrades done to my 16' Jet Black Mica ND with more planned for the future. DM me if you want to see pictures of my car on IG or if you would like an additional opinion on parts I have not covered in this post.

u/HeartBorne7thSeeker · 4 pointsr/crv

I sure can! I replaced my map, dome, rear cargo, and parking lights with LEDs on my 2002 Here are the amazon links, but I found some at the local autozone

Also, my coworkers have installed these brand LED headlights in their cars and they look great, haven't done mine yet due to the cost :

Hope that helps, also this page :

Is what I used to find and check all fitment codes for the LED lights replacements, Happy Lighting!

u/jayemo · 4 pointsr/civic

Just realized how vague my reply was.

Weather mats - I was able to get "free" Honda ones from the dealer with my vehicle purchase. They're nice and fit well. I've heard great things about weather tech too. And don't forget one for the trunk too. Mine earned it's keep the first time a milk jug leaked. Super easy cleanup compared to carpet cleaning.

Interior leds - I used these plus this trim removal kit. Trim kit is a nice to have, you probably have something around the house to improvise with. For the actual install hit up you tube for "tenth gen Civic interior lights". It's a very easy job.

Also this was my first time having a car with a nice key fob so I got some of these to keep it from getting beat up. With auto lock, unlock, and push button start, it only leaves my pocket when I'm home anyway.

u/Bigbirdk · 4 pointsr/prius

I can’t help with headlights info, but I have a 2015 3 and did the LED Interior, reverse, license plate and parking lights upgrade. Really pretty easy and much better light all around. I used these and they all are still working great:

I also bought this toolkit for removing interior the light covers and panels:

It’s not hard to do and there are very good videos on youtube to guide you, like this one:

I am currently looking at these for the turn signals too:

Good luck!

u/AlastorX50 · 4 pointsr/prius

I purchased these and they have worked great.

u/Howry · 4 pointsr/Elantra

I was in the same boat you were. So many options and so many reviews its hard to tell what is real and whats not.

I ended up going with these for my 2015 Elantra.

I have been very pleased with them. My wife works nights and she wasnt happy with the stock ones. She has been very happy with them.

They have been installed for about 4 months with zero problems.

A couple of notes however, at least on the 2015 Elantra, the dust caps will not fit with these in. You will either need to buy aftermarket caps which are available for cheap on amazon or go without any. I don't have any currently and haven't had an issue with dust or water etc getting into my housings.

The tend to mess with your AM radio signal if you are trying to listen to a weak station. Stronger AM stations don't seem to have an issue. No issue listening to FM or Sirius, Cd etc.

u/RubiconTJ03 · 3 pointsr/Jeep

Buy a pair of Hella 7" Headlamps (ECE), and this.

The lamp housings are european code (ECE or E-code). Technically not DOT legal in the US-- but is your inspection station going to inspect your headlamp housings?) These have a sharp cutoff so they won't blind other drivers. I've been running them for years and I love them. The pattern is far superior to DOT lamps-- it tends to really throw the light forward from the bulbs.

The wire loom from ARB is made of a much thicker gauge wire than the wires that are currently driving your headlights. The same bulbs will run brighter with this wire loom upgrade, but I found that if you add new housings (with nice clean clear glass and a good light projection pattern), and a pair of high-quality H4 bulbs, your headlights will work with the power of a thousand suns.

For bulbs, I'm currently running Sylvania SilverStars, but in the past I found out about IPF Fatboy II 80W/60W bulbs. The low-beam is actually higher than the high-beam wattage. Not sure why or how that makes sense, but these are a seriously great upgrade. Be warned, they run very hot and are susceptible to vibration damage (moreso than other standard 55w bulbs). Don't expect these bulbs to last more than a year or two. They're intense, though.

Hope that helps, because that's what I did to my Jeep. I also added a pair of Hella driving-pattern auxiliary lights on my stinger and a pair of 4" Delta fog lights on my front bumper.

u/scottyjnc · 3 pointsr/prius

There is absolutely no difference between brights and low. Nothing electrically changes. All that happens is that a little mirror moves inside the fixture, which doesn't even touch the lamp. No electrical difference at all. So I have no idea why that's happening, but it wouldn't be due to any sort of wiring problem because brights and low beam use exactly the same lamp, wiring, circuitry, everything.

Here's a link to the Phillips lamps on Amazon.

If you do a search for "D4R" on Amazon, you'll get a lot of other results. Some of the people on boards like PriusChat like the MaxLux lamps, which are a touch more expensive, but I have had good results with the Phillips ones, which are the ones Toyota installs at the factory. (OEM.)

You can use H4 or 9003 bulbs, they're interchangeable. 9003 are usually cheaper in the US, H4 is a European standard. Don't use uprated/brighter lights. Just a standard 9003. You don't need to worry about harnesses or anything, they are plug and play.

also you're going to want to get a projector kit as GT172I has said. it gives you that crisp beam of light like you see on brand new/higher end cars. here's just an example, IDK if these fit but its a projector kit that you would put inside your headlight housing

u/JakeFrmStatfarm · 3 pointsr/4Runner

I ended up buying some new headlights off eBay and they are pretty good quality. I didn't want to ruin my OEM ones just in case I wanted to go back to stock. If you have any questions, let me know! I know the headlights inside and out and I'd be glad to help!

I used THESE ones. Amazon Prime for $9.99.

Very bright, but word for the wise, Do not replace your brights indicator with one of these. I did and it nearly blinded me with blue light when I used the brights. Ended up switching it back out for one of the original bulbs. They are nice in the turn signals however as they're nice and bright, keeping from being an idiot that lets them just run after a turn.

These lights also fit into the shifting plate and the 4WD plate of you've got it. Just enough to do them all vice the brights.

EDIT: I also did a little modification while I painted my instrument cluster of putting aluminum tape around the backside of the tac and speedo to try and reflect the light a little better. It seems to have worked a little but not much.

Depo Racing - 3.5" intercooler, catless downpipe, intercooler pipe kit

Boomba Racing - shifter base bushings, short shift lever

Tire Rack, Discount Tire Direct - wheels and tires. Both offer great deals but I go with Tire Rack because they include an amazing road hazard warranty for free with every tire you buy.

Tasca Parts - OEM Ford parts. Some good options: RS airbox lid, RS Shifter, RS engine cover, RS intake pipes

Amazon - ZL1 Rock Guards (tiny but very effective mud flaps), CravenSpeed stubby antenna, 3D (Mugen) style Window rain visors, Philips H11 Xtreme Vision headlight bulbs (same color as stock but 100% brighter), Stainless T-clamps for your intercooler, Motul Multi DCTF transmission fluid, and TONS of Meguiars car care products.

A post I can contribute to! I recently bought [these dope headlights] ( for my 16 year old Passport. The old ones were dim and the new ones are fantastic! A 4 star average and over 3000 reviews. Yes, they are 100 bucks but damn, so worth. Just be sure to find out what bulb type the car needs. Mine was a 9003 aka h4. You can find this by plugging your car's info into Look at a couple youtube videos to find out how to install the bulb: Mine had a rubber 'boot' that sealed the bulb in the housing and a metal clip that holds it in place. A zip tie or 2 to hold the wire and you are all set.

Some tips from my 2015 RAV4:

Replace the internal bulbs whenever you get a chance. It's a very simple job, and makes a huge difference in my opinion. I couldn't see anything at night with the stock done/cabin lights. I can't find exactly what I used, but here's something similar:

All weather floor mats are a great idea, mine came installed already and are Lifesavers. I love camping, hiking, and biking, and I can only imagine what my trunk would look like without my mats.

A hitch (can be $$$) is also a great addition. If that's something you're interested in, try to take into consideration what you'd like to use it for. If youre hoping to haul something or fit two+ adult bikes on it, you'll want a 2" hitch receiver. If you think you'll only need it for smaller things, you'd be fine with a 1.25". You'll definitely want some help installing this, not to mention you'll want a torque wrench (auto stores might be able to loan or rent one out to you).

Side rails + cross rails (typically expensive). If you're going to be taking trips up to the snow, but still want to load up the trunk with your other cargo, you definitely need to look into getting some rails for the top of your car. I bought to lowest trim RAV since I knew I could buy after market stuff like this that comes on the higher end trims, but at a fraction of the cost. Again I can't speak for your RAV, but installing this on a 2015 was easy.

As others have been saying, if you're driving an AWD model, try to get familiar with how Toyotas AWD system works. If you're going to be driving in snow conditions, 2WD w/ snow tires can beat an AWD w/ normal tires any day of the week, so be careful :)

Congrats on the purchase and the baby!

u/seven3true · 3 pointsr/subarulegacy

My trim didn't have fog lights.
I can't remember right now, but I think I was having an issue with finding high beams, or something. I can't seem to find any order history on other bulbs.
But, these are the reverse lights

And these are for you interior lights, and license plate lights

These work on my 2018 as well so they should still match a 2016.

u/MaxKlootzak · 3 pointsr/Tacomaworld

I went with these LED lamps as a cheap alternative. They're actually very nice, I was pleasantly surprised. Most people think they're high end OEM LED headlights but actually just bulb swaps.

Probably the fans built into the back of the bulb assembly. That and the heat sink dissipates heat to ensure a longer bulb life. I have Auxbeam in my '16 and the I get the same buzzing noise. My low beams don't generate the buzzing noise but when my highs are on, they do.

My stock sealed beam lights were all cloudy and gross, and then one burned out. Instead of replacing them with OEM, I got a set of Hellas on Amazon and not only do they look great, they have a much better coverage pattern and are much brighter.

u/deengpeems · 2 pointsr/fordranger

Were you looking for an upgraded light bulb that fits the pre-existing socket or some mounted lights like these?

Some of the mounted lights are actually cheaper than the LED fan-cooled business I've seen at auto parts stores.

u/McColorado · 2 pointsr/4x4

I bought those lights and they really had not much output. The lights I got after those were these: and they were really bright. But If you want a beam, these are really the best lights to get: honestly, cheap lights like those navigators will NOT be worth it. These LED's or Hella's will be. I enjoy my hellas and those LED's enough that I will have 4 of the LED's and 4 of The Hellas just for night offroad use.

u/fancy_panter · 2 pointsr/prius

You can get the HID bulbs for $50 from amazon:

u/googlyeyesonevrythng · 2 pointsr/motorcycles

LED's use less power than regular bulbs. Because of this, the lights will blink faster (hyperblink). You need to add a resistor to the wiring for the turn signals to introduce more load which will slow them down.


Something like this would work.

u/drtonmeister · 2 pointsr/electricians

This is for 12V, though. I've seen 12V ones for automotive use, but they get pretty hot even when bolted to metal.

u/Qurtys_Lyn · 2 pointsr/cars

I put these in my Jeep. They're awesome. And this is the LED bar I have.

u/RocketGrouch · 2 pointsr/motorcycles

If you really want the classic vintage-ish look, you could replace the reflector itself with something more modern. The old bike reflectors (and even many more modern bike reflectors) are cheap crap, which seriously hampers the normal halogen bulb from performing.

A Hella Vision Plus or Cibie reflector would improve the light output quite a lot compared to the crap that's already on there. And that would look pretty darn retro.

A Truck-lite Phase 7 7-inch LED reflector looks fairly retro, it's a normal looking light but with a bar across it. It's not jarringly non-retro, anyway. And they output tons of light and are very cheap now, some of the cheaper DOT approved LED you can find and with great performance to boot. - here is the same thing on Kuryakyns site with better pics. - ignore the halos and stuff, those are all add-ons.

Don't go with LED "bulbs" in a Halogen reflector. It's illegal, and LED's don't work well in such a reflector - a halogen reflector is made to have a very specific size filament in a very specific point in space inside the headlight, and the more you deviate from that the more you'll spray light in any and all directions. HID, same thing, total crap solution and you can be ticketed for either.

There are a few optioins besides the GE Nighthawks. I run these in my Miata:

There are also these:

Yes only the top half lights up, but how often are you looking back at your lights? THe cutoff is great, does not not blind oncoming traffic. I am a big fan.

u/Jonibrasco · 2 pointsr/Harley

I run a truck-lite

And these cheap foglights

I have a real hard time driving my car at night. I cant see crap unless I have my high beams on.

Honestly I wasnt impressed with the headlight at first, but once it was aimed properly Im quite happy. The fogs are almost to bright. Being a new rider I was very apprehensive about driving at night. Last night I had no choice and I will now say that ill take my bike over my car in the dark every time. I was able to see everything much better than the high beams on my car. This was running the low beam and fogs.

On a side note, I am now being told I have to lead if im in a group because my lights are so bright.

u/Godly1n · 2 pointsr/Miata
u/wilmsas · 2 pointsr/Wrangler

I am not a fan of LED headlights by any means. Most people do not know how to aim them correctly, thus blinding everyone they come across.

If you have your heart set on LED lights, I highly suggest looking at this website:

The guy's name is Daniel Stern and he is THE guru on lights. He gives an extremely detailed how-to on aiming LED lights. He also gives tutorials on how to correctly aim normal bulb headlights. They are extremely detailed, but rest assured, he will give the best advice

Alternatively, you can go the route I took and purchase Cibie (pronounced cee-BEE-ay). It is a brand made in France or Belgium, I believe and are european code lights. I have run them in my RX-7s, Miatas, and other cars to which I have received no complaints from cops or anyone else. They give an amazing light pattern, and give plenty of light (feathering) on the sides of the road which really come in handy when deer and the like are out.

The link to them are here from Amazon:

Make sure to buy the bulbs (DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS WHEN INSTALLING!). I purchased the 60/55W bulbs, also at this link:

Let me know if I can answer any other questions!

I don't know how much clearance you're going to have but if you can find a sealed beam conversion headlamp, you might be able to retrofit a projector like this, Nilight 2.5" Mini HID Bixenon Projector Lens for H1 Bulb Car Gift:chrome Shround and install an H1 LED bulb.

This projector will give you a cutoff beam and even has a high beam solenoid inside to flip the cutoff plate away.

The back end might get too deep to fit between your triple and gauge cluster but it's the cheapest thing I can think of. It might be a challenge finding a chrome cover for the back.

u/SlyBrownEye · 2 pointsr/Jeep

Awesome, thanks for the heads up. Here's the projector housings, hid kit, and headlight housings. I had to cut holes in the back of the headlights and jb weld the projectors in, but it was all pretty simple. Also had to use a step drill to cut holes behind the headlights on the Jeep to clear the backs of the lamps.

The default incandescent map light bulbs are ~3000K (soft white) in my 2011. I really like Bright white bulbs (3500-4100K) and use them for my house. Unfortunately, the only LEDs I can find for map lights are either soft white or daylight (6100K) --with most of the bright ones being daylight. If they say "Xenon white", they're daylight.

There are packs of them on Amazon for cheap:

u/hiryuux · 2 pointsr/infiniti

You get what you pay for with led bulbs. $0.40 Chinese led bulbs will be typically be pretty blue and dim, with short life expectancy and limited warranty/support. I went through three cheap sets in my first year of owning the G37 actually.

The ones in your eBay link have 5050 led chips which are older and don't output as light as newer led chips like 5630, 2835, 5730.

I would suggest Diode Dynamics HP5 bulbs in 6000k for maximum brightness and reliability. $20/pair of bulbs (you'll need three for doors, dome, and license plate, maybe four if you want to do the trunk too). Pricey but I can vouch that these are bright, true to color, and won't flicker within a few months. Plus 3 yr warranty with solid customer support. They also have some cool easy diy tail light and fog light mods.

On the lower budget spectrum, these Amazon sets have newer 2835 led chips which are a lot brighter than 5050s. The build quality is good but I'm unsure on longevity since I only tried them for a week or two now on our Honda Accord.

u/wallybeavis · 2 pointsr/ToyotaTacoma

I second these suggestions. I replaced my maplights with these It was a PITA removing the old bulbs. Ended up using packing tape to wrap around the bulb to pull them out.

And b/c I bought the wrong dome light bulb, I'll be replacing my dome light with this tomorrow

Please don't do what I did and go off a youtube link, double check these will all work in your Taco first.

Also, if you're going to be prying things apart I'd suggest a cheap (<$10) trim kit. I already had a cellphone repair kit so I used one of it's plastic pry tools.

u/smelllikespirit · 2 pointsr/mazda

I'm running these Auxbeam LEDs on my Mazda 3 2016. They're really good for my needs and have a much better cutoff line than the kensun LEDs. I first bought them for my girlfriend's 2016 civic and grew jealous about how much better they were than my kensun ones lol.

u/Backbowl · 2 pointsr/Tacomaworld

I got these Auxbeam ones for my 2019 low beams. Be careful, if you buy ones with a big ass fan in the back, you will have to remove the whole headlight to replace the bulb. In order to do that you would have to loosen the fenders and remove the bumpers which to me is excessive to replace bulbs. These are easy and with a bit of jiggling, they go right in. Awesome bright light.

I just bought these and they seem pretty good so far. Better output than the halogen bulbs, plug &a play, and still have a really sharp cutoff in the stock projectors.

u/Itz_A_Me_Wario · 2 pointsr/mazda3

Straight swap. It’s also pretty easy to change the bulbs without tearing the entire front end apart. You just need to loosen the under hood fuse box and swing it a couple inches aside to fit your hand in there. The bulbs also have a positive/negative connection that isn’t marked, so if you put them in and they don’t work- just flip the plug. They look fantastic.

u/ChicagoAdmin · 2 pointsr/cars

If your headlights are in projector housings, you can get away with using *just* the right LED bulbs. The big concern is where, vertically, the cutoff is, so it doesn't blind other drivers (nor look like trash). I've had great luck with Beamtech's bulbs on Amazon [ LINK ] depending on the car I put them in. Again, gotta' have projector housings (which I think your car has, for DRL's), but these bulbs are oriented with the LED's at 3 & 9 o'clock when mounted, and cutoff at just the right height.

u/realrube · 2 pointsr/mazda6

I just looked back through my history, this is what I ordered..
but it's no longer available in H11 (on the .CA site) but on .COM this seems to be available:

u/hellfire1394 · 2 pointsr/MechanicAdvice

Not a mechanic. I've heard mixed opinions. Some say never convert to LED, some say projector housings are fine but not reflector housings. I don't even know what exactly is the conversion kit on top of the bulb itself.

I got this from Amazon on my 17 Mazda 3, they work great so far. My car may not have compatible bulb detection.

u/fizzymynizzy · 2 pointsr/hondafit

Yes you are seeing white at the turn signal lights. When I am using side marker lights, low beams or high beams. Those turn signal lights will be white. But when I turn left, right, and hazard it will be back to amber.

Front turn signal LED lights(7444NA):

Front head lights type: 9003/H4/HB2. If you want fog lights it is H8(H11/H8/H9):
DO NOT remove the original manufacture Dielectric Grease on the H4 socket. Unless you using some other brand of Dielectric Grease.

Side marker lights(2) has a bunch of names too. Type 194, T10, W5W(These are also the same lights for driver side(1), front passenger side(1), back passenger(1), trunk(1) and license plates lights(2)):
So, this 10 pack you will be using 8 out of 10. Remember if it doesn't work turn it 180 degree.

Back Reverse lights and back turn signal lights. Type 7443 you will have to get 2 of this. Making it 4 LED bulbs.
Not to worry that the LED is white for turn light. Because the back housing is RED. So White LED + RED = Bright Red. Be warn: We didn't use resistor front and back. So, we are getting hyper flashing.

For the back lights, you will need to use the philip screw driver, the X kind. So, you can take out the housing and install the LEDs. The very top red part are turns on when you use Side markers, low beam and high beam. And those top red lights are LED already. So you don't have to change those. All you need to do is the White one and the bottom Red one for both side. So you need a total of 4 LED type 7443.

You might want to get trim tools. Unless you want to use a t-shirt and a flat head screw driver. But having trim tools can help you with wire management for heads up display and for dash cam wire. I do recommend the trim those thats 13pcs or 14pcs. Because that 1 or 2 extra tool with give you the option to pop those plugs under the front of the car if you are going to replace the fog lights(H8 according to the manual).

Other things we have:
Heads Up Display Model A8:
Now you don't have to guess what speed you are on. We really hate that analog speedometer. 2018 and we still using analog. I notice they are out of stocks. Here are list of HID Model A8:

OBD2 Y-Cable:
1 is for the Heads up display, and the other one for those check warning device.

OBD2 Scanner car diagnostic tool:
there are other ones. You might want to do your research before buying one.

Windshield wiper. Front driver side is 28 inch, Front passenger side is 14 inch. Back rear is 14 inch.
We use this brand. Since silicone last longer than rubber:
We replace the whole thing for the front 2: Pick 28inch and 14inch.

Front Passenger side - 14 Inch:

Driver side - 28 Inch:

I believe this is what we got for the back. It is a refill blade. Be warn. It is hard to installed.

u/darealmvp1 · 2 pointsr/hondafit

I installed the a129 last week. Seems to be running ok but haven't tried parking mode as there is still complaints about it's recording algorithms. Waiting for a more reliable firmware update. I had an a119s that ran fine in high temps for 3 years. Due to the steep angle of the windshield or the fov of the camera I opted to install my camera to the right of the rear view mirror. It looks more centered than to the left of the mirror. I haven't gotten around to running the rear camera. Im going to have to run it through the door sill rather than the headliner as there's no where to tucknin that thick wire for the rear cam. Also my rear hatch glass has dark tint on it so I'm not sticking the cpl on that.

Idk if it was just my dark tint making it hard to see but I've replaced the rear back up lights with these. Reverse is MUCH brighter now.

Right now I'm looking for a door sill vinyl with "fit" written on it. My fit already has a rather noticeable scuff on the driver's door. So far the only where I've seen a good looking one is Alibaba but I'd rather not buy from there. Amazon has one but it's not the same and also doesn't have prime shipping. If I can't find anything I'm problably going to add a "carbon" universal sill decal.

  • What is the most basic way/product of replacing the headlights?
  • Are the housing and actual light bulb sold together or separate?

    Regarding upgrades:

  • Often the phrase "conversion" is used, how is installation different from replacing with OEM bulbs and/or housing?
  • Do lights like the Hella h4, Cibie have a shorter lifespan than the cheaper, dimmer, OEM lights?
  • Are the upgraded lights US legal?
  • I don't want to spend too much, I did a filter for '96 Miata, searched for Hella H4 and found this, is it the right part?

You're missing my point. A lamp can be compliant with the standards, be a poorly designed one, or the best one available, but if its not properly aimed, they can both cause a problem for other drivers. Its not necessarily a problem of design, but the implementation.

And your MG has 5.75" headlamps right? Upgrading your lighting absolutley is worth it, if you do a lot of night driving an like being able to see.

JW Speaker has some excellent 5.75" LED headlamps. They are prupose built, well designed and an absolutely massive upgrade from halogens available in that format. They are also compliant with SAE standards, and if you aim them properly, are going to let you see very well and also minimize glare for oncoming drivers.

If you have 7" round halogens, you have more options. Cheapest, but still very good is GE Nighthawk 7" sealed beams. They are the best 7" sealed beam available.

Better than that is Hella but you have to makr sure you're getting the correct ones for the US. Left Hand Traffic.

Better still, with a replaceable bulb option, would be to find a set of Cibie Z-Beams, which are unfortunately out if production.

Upgrading to LED can get you either the Gen2 Truck Lite 7" round LED lamp, which has a decent low beam and a very, very good high beam. Or a set of JW Speaker 8700/8700 Evolutions/8700 Evolution 2's. The Evo2's is their newest model, and by far the best LED headlamp in that format on the market, in terms of both high and low beams. Unfortunately, not cheap, but awesome lights, and fully compliant with all SAE standards.

Those bulbs are shit. See.

You went to 1380 lumens, which is rather low. You could be at 2100 lumen, and see everything.

H11 -> H9 low beam mod = 55% increase in light output
9011 high beam mod = 48% increase in light output

Your best is to do a little mod, which can be done with a nail clipper (you just cut away some metal from the bulb housing. And use H9 bulbs instead. (

These are the best fucking halogen low beams bulbs you can fit into a Subaru (

If you want to do the same mod to your highbeams, you can do so by swapping to an HIR 9011 bulb.( (

I got the interior LEDs from eBay. I'd strongly suggest a trim tool if you don't have one (Amazon or Harbor Freight). I later replaced the cargo area LED with a larger LED array for more brightness; the other LEDs are all great and are similar color range of the approach lights if you have them.

The sway bar cuts back on the wobble you might feel on the back end when you turn. For me it made it feel a bit more sedan-like. I read through this extensive thread and decided to give it a go. It's $100 so not too much of an investment considering the overwhelmingly positive reviews. Pretty easy to install with the right tools. Ramps help but aren't necessary.

For the headlamps I bought these H9 bulbs with these harnesses. Both bulbs will work but the connector is different. I opted for the affordable harness so I could cut those up instead of the factory connectors so the bulbs would fit.

I've not actually used my oil drain valve yet as I'm just shy of 5k miles. Did my first oil change at 3k to get it installed and I'll probably change it again at 6k to test it out and get my intervals back on the 6k multiples.

Again, install was straight forward and I did use a torque wrench to tighten. The nipple is still within the plastic shroud and I have no worry about it hitting anything (if it does I have other problems). No leaks or anything.

Bulbs i used that work really well and cheap:

u/old_snake · 1 pointr/MechanicAdvice

Very kind of you. I’m replacing the stock ones in a 2008 Toyota Highlander. They have always been very yellow and not bright at all, which is why I was intrigued by LED but outside from all these fit issues I have noticed that they do not spread the light evenly or all that well.

My other car is a 2008 Prius with these Xenon HID bulbs and they are outstanding. They have totally spoiled me when I drive my wife’s car.

The size I am looking for is H4(9003). These are the halogens I had been considering before I rolled the dice on these LEDs.

I believe that these are the Phillips XVs that you were recommending elsewhere in the thread, correct? $22 is a pretty sweet deal.

I’m just looking for whatever will get me the closest to the HID experience I have on my Prius without having to change out the assembly and ballasts or spend $150-200 on bulbs.

I appreciate all your help.

u/ACDRetirementHome · 1 pointr/prius

You most likely have some sort of electrical fault.

However, keep in mind that what you're describing is exactly how HID bulbs fail - they turn on at first, and then randomly turn themselves off. It doesn't matter if you're moving or stationary.

If you bring it to the dealership, they might still want to try replacing the bulbs. I had my bulbs fail at ~65,000 miles, so you're about due. I don't remember the specifics anymore, but I remember the recall not covering my case (I think I had too many miles on the car). In case you don't want to pay and they insist on replacing the bulbs, I'll include some specifics:

The Toyota D4R bulbs are ~$130 each (and they usually charge ~$100 for labor), but I recently had to put in new bulbs and I just got the Sylvania D4R bulbs off Amazon (make sure you buy it directly from Amazon and not some other seller because there are a lot of real-looking fakes) for $44 each: If you prefer Toyota OEM ones direct from a Toyota dealership, I can give you a reference for some discounted parts (one of a few perks of being familiar with the "tuner" community).

You can do the bulb replacement without taking off the front (detailed here:, but I find it's much easier to do it the "right" way (detailed here: It's actually really easy, it's just undoing like 8 10mm bolts and unclipping the bumper cover. It took me about 40 minutes the first time because I was being careful, and like 20 minutes the second time.

u/FreydNot · 1 pointr/prius

For what it's worth, these are the ones for my 2008 (which I think is the same as your 2005, but I'm not sure).

u/Vulcan9012 · 1 pointr/motorcycles

I wouldn't be concerned about getting flush indicators. I would be leery of doing anything that would decrease visibility. You can find some lower profile stalks that will stick out less, but still let you be seen by other drivers.

A word of caution tho, if you're looking to go LED for your signals as I have, while you get a much brighter light, on an older bike it's likely you won't be drawing enough current to activate the relay that makes it flash. This is what happens when a turn signal is burned out and why you get that fast flashing, which is what you will have if you don't get an aftermarket relay or some decent resistors to help.

Another thing you could do, which is what I did, is I rewired my stock turn signals to my brake light as well as installed led turn signals. What this did was allowed it to draw enough current to keep it from giving me the fast flash, as well as giving a dull flash in my tail light. AFAIK it's legal to have a flashing/pulsing/strobing brake light since they sell kits for it. I put the bulbs in the same spot as the brake light bulbs, but I used a few strips of red SMD 5050 in my brake light housing and they're much brighter than stock.

Edit: added link for the type of turn signals.

There's a hint of blue with 10k but I like that. Switchbacks are dual colored directionals. When youre head lights are on the directionals are white like in the picture and when youre signaling they flash amber. I haven't touched the break lights but I did switch the rear parking bulb with an led so I can see more out of my rear camera.

funny, i usually recommend these...

i find the truck-lite ones are pretty good, D.O.T. Approved, and have a warranty tht they will actually go good for.

also, check your grounds, and make sure they aren't screwed up or backfeeding. i've seen it happen too many times with LED lights

u/cr0ft · 1 pointr/Triumph

Looking good.

Although why you didn't upgrade to a LED reflector while doing it eludes me. You may actually see less light output with that than with dual 5.75 inch (or bug eyes).

Personally, I kind of like the older type with two 5.75 inch round ones. Put two JW Speaker adaptive LED reflectors in those and you'd have godly levels of light on the road. Also, a huge hole in your wallet, but just going with something like a pair of Vision X would be a huge upgrade.

Since that looks like a 7 inch bucket, you should really consider LED. If you don't like the look of the JW Speaker ones (multiple lenses) even though I think the black reflector variant of those looks killer and would suit your bike awesomely with all that black on there already:

...consider a cheap Truck-lite Phase 7. They look almost like a normal light but give out way more lumens. It's not the best but it's good and cheap.

I was looking at doing the Cibie lights from Amazon. Sounded like they were going to be the best bang for the buck.

Cibie 82440 Light Unit

u/hydraloo · 1 pointr/Miata

2 of these
and a set of these

H4 is simply the size of the bulb, cibie e codes are some high quality headlight standards from europe. Worth every penny for me, it feels like I am in a rally car at night,

Edit: You could also try doing an LED upgrade instead of the plug and play bulbs I linked. It requires marginally more effort, but I don't know good LEDs off the top of my head. Would require some research.

u/Bageeka · 1 pointr/Wrangler

I think KC, Hella, and Rampage are the most common ones. I've heard rampage ones are cheap so it'll be safer to go with the other brands

I bought these cibies which have great reviews on the Jeep fourms and amazon. You just have to buy the bulbs later

u/Mallanaga · 1 pointr/Jeep

Cibie lamps and some quality LEDs. It was the first thing I upgraded on my LJ. The jw speaker and truck lite LEDs are single units, which I didn’t like.

This route, your lamp stays consistent, and you can swap out the bulb when needed easily.

u/Mayhall · 1 pointr/Miata

Anyone done these headlight swaps before with good instructions? Is it pretty straightforward? Also is that price for the pair?

Yes! HID retrofits, first mod that I did within 48 hours of buying the car. Highly recommend, and it cost like $80 total

I followed this thread:

Granted there were some differences, for example I used a heat gun instead of my oven, but generally I followed that pretty closely.

These are the projectors I got:®-Mini-Bixenon-Projector-Lens/dp/B00B21R0TA/ref=cm_rdp_product

u/fifapro23 · 1 pointr/Miata

I bought this kit off amazon

So far the output looks great and I saw someone else on the Miata forums use this kit with success.

u/UrbanEngineer · 1 pointr/motorcycles

Here is the cheapest set of projectors I could find online. You still have to buy ballasts and bulb, and a relay wiring harness. It runs about $100.

You don't just drop in projectors typically. Usually there is some dremel modification required.

u/DracoAzuleAA · 1 pointr/Saturn_Cars

You may actually be able to find some pre-built projector housings for yours. I looked and looked and looked, and the only pre-built projector housings I could find for the Vue were for year models 07 and up. Mine's an 03.

So I had to build mine. And the parts I used were pretty cheap so you might save money just building your own anyways.

Here's the parts I used

Nilight 2.5" Mini HID Bixenon Projector Lens

2x 23inch Dual Color White-Amber Switchback Headlight LED Tube Strip Light DRL Daytime Running Light & Turn Signal Lamp For Audi-Style Headlight

HID-Warehouse HID Xenon Replacement Bulbs - H1 8000K - Medium Blue (1 Pair)

The paint I used was just a can of Rustoleum semi gloss black I got at Walmart for a few bucks.

I also purchased a separate set of headlights to do all this with, as this was my first time. I wanted to be able to take as much time as I needed with it. I can also easily switch back to stock at any time for whatever reason. I would suggest you do the same, if you're planning on building them.

To get them apart, I preheated our kitchen oven to 220 degrees. I lined an old baking pan with a wet towel and set the headlight on it, then put it in the oven for 10 minutes. This will soften the sealant enough so that you can pry the light housing apart.

Then when you're done with all of your modifications, remove as much of the old sealant you can and then line the edges of the housing with the new sealant. Heat it up like before and compress it back together.

u/cdude · 1 pointr/Miata


I bought 3 sets for 3 cars, all came out pretty good.

u/augustella · 1 pointr/prius

I used these. the same bulbs are the same as the front interior lights and the front door lights.

u/tcc9mpl · 1 pointr/CherokeeXJ

For my 96 xj (full cluster with tach) my dash took 8 194 LEDs. Then 2 194's, for the transfer case and trans shifters. Then I replaced 2 74 LED's. One for the key insert ring and one for the hvac. There are a few more 74 slots behind the switches to the left and right of your wheel.

You have to unscrew the steering wheel plastic shroud. It takes a torx 15 I believe, you need a long torx screwdriver for this, a bit won't fit up there. Then you pull the dash panel off, then four screws around the instrument panel, another 1-2 screws near the warning lights area on the left side. Pull out the instrument panel a bit and you will have to disconnect two plugs in the back, one behind the warning lights and one in the middle of the cluster. Push in and pull up on the middle plug to get it out. Then pull the instrument panel and untwist the 8 ports for the 194 lights, then put it all back.

You can replace the warning lights if you want with 74's as well but that's a lot of LEDs, maybe 8 or so.
The hvac light port is on the upper right side when you unscrew the four screws and pull it out a bit.

For the 194's I got these Yorkim LEDs off Amazon, cheaper than superbright and seem to be great quality. I love them so far.

These are the 74's I bought. You might be able to find cheaper.

u/RLupus · 1 pointr/MechanicAdvice

Led and hid replacements don't work nearly as well in a reflector lens, they do much better in a projector style housing. As in, they'll have bright and dark spots and blind oncoming traffic.

That said, these are what I put in my wife's Acadia (projector headlights) and I'm super happy with these, even though I had to massage the housing to fit.

u/RapideGT · 1 pointr/Charger

Switching to LEDs would allow OP to remove all the complicated added circuits from the HIDs. Is it possible this is causing his problems? I believe it would help rule it out, at least.

Either way, I do recommend switching to LEDs if you can. You get rid of that extra wiring and LEDs are plug and play. I bought these and they are brighter than my OEM halogens but not as bright as most HIDs I have seen. They do spread a lot of light with the reflector housing, but I imagine your HIDs do the same thing anyway.

u/Zombiii · 1 pointr/ToyotaTacoma

I purchased and installed the Opt7 LEDs for my low beams and am very happy with them so far. My main reason for going with these is the thread on TacomaWorld with many users being happy with the results. I didn't like the yellow light of the stock halogens, especially when compared with the white LED DRLs on the headlights.

The Opt7 LEDs match very close with the DRLs. The light output is about the same as the stock halogens but looks so much better in my opinion.

I got them on Amazon but I think you can find them cheaper in eBay.

Yeah, it's pretty crazy. I think they want BMW's to be more affordable to people. They're nice, yeah, but now the $30,000 base models come with 4 cylinder engines, cloth seats, halogen headlights, etc. You gotta pay attention to all the packages available. You could always try a kit like this:

I have a BK2 and replaced the low beams and marker lights with LEDs and the turn signals with switchback LEDs.

I used these H7 bulbs for the lows: Cougar Motor H7 LED Headlight Bulbs, CREE All-in-One Conversion Kit - 7,200Lm 6000K Cool White

And these adapters: GZXY H7 LED Headlight Car Bulb Adapter Holder Socket for KIA K3 K4 K5 Sorento SportageR Coupe Grand Santa Fe Hyundai Sonata9 Coupe Veloster 2pcs

These for the side markers: SiriusLED Extremely Bright 3030 Chipset LED Bulbs for Car Interior Dome Map Door Courtesy License Plate Lights Compact Wedge T10 168 194 2825 Xenon White Pack of 10

And these switchbacks:

I ended up glueing the adapters onto the existing adapter already on the LED with Loctite. The hardest part was stuffing the low beam pig tail into the housing. It takes a bit k, but it is doable. I uses a 1 1/4" spade bit to drill a hole in each low beam cap for the LED fans to vent. A holesaw bit may work better. Everything else was plug and play. I still need to swap out the turn signal flasher to fix the switchback's hyperblink. I wasn't able to do the high beams because there wasn't enough space to tuck the LED pigtail in there. Any ideas for that?

Anyways it is super bright! Way brighter than the Sylvania zXe halogens I was using before. Fog lights are next then tails.

u/memebuster · 1 pointr/VWMK7

I recently bought these for a different make car but I'm pretty sure they are all the same. They are BRIGHT, like daylight at night and I love them.

u/goldenyoshi · 1 pointr/civic

HID works best on the new Civics. I have tried LED for the low beam and they are bright, but don't shine very far. I tried them in a 2017 Accord and it works better in the Accord than the Civic. HIDs shine further and give your more visibility.

I believe most others used 6000k bulbs and have said it matched their fog lights.

These LED work perfectly for me. I changed all the interior lights with these.

u/DanielHeth · 1 pointr/DodgeDakota

I'm not so sure... I looked up the 192 bulb and appears to be the same as a 168...
But this bulb in the center console is so much tinier than this.

u/atetuna · 1 pointr/CherokeeXJ

I used these for my sidemarker lights and they are significantly brighter than the original bulbs. All my exterior lights are now LED except for the headlights, along with some of my interior lights. The only part we both share are the reverse lights. I didn't like using red LED's. The output through the lens was less than using white LED's. I may try your XOR gate to see if output can be increased even further, but it probably won't unless I switch bulbs. The bulbs you're using are probably brighter than mine. The sad part about the sidemarkers is that there's very limited space, so big 1000+ lumen bulbs won't fit. These were the first bulbs I tried for the sidemarkers. I think I have them installed in my map lights now.

The all day aspect is why I converted to LED. I don't want as much risk of draining my battery, and that happened on a long weekend camping trip when I left a map light on, which caused me to finally address my interior.

I have Kensun 4300K HID's for my low beam, Qcheye 6000K LED's for the high beam, and Alla 3000K LED's for the Fog lights. Pretty much the brightest, most functional light colors for any condition. I live in AK, so super dark, snowy, wet crap conditions for driving all winter.

Just a note, the low beam projectors don't have enough room to fit LED units with built-in heat sinks.

u/Red_Comet_Coaster · 1 pointr/FocusST

These right here!

Really great value for the quality of the bulb. And they're a true yellow, the picture makes them look a little green, but they're a pure yellow in real life.

u/RedditWhileIWerk · 1 pointr/Vstrom

Heat is not a problem, in my experience. I've been using Beamtech H4 replacements since late last year. Specifically, these:

I like these particular units because they have no moving parts. No cooling fan, but rather a heatsink base. No fit problem - they are drop-in replacements for the stock lamps.

It's been routinely around 100°F in the afternoon, this summer. You'd think if there were a problem with the LEDs overheating, I'd have seen it by now. I haven't.

Beam pattern is comparable to stock H4 lamps. Maybe a little better to the side on the "low beam" setting.

That said, low-beam upper cutoff is not quite as sharp as it was with the stock H4's. But, I haven't had any indication that I'm blinding anyone. If I did, the headlamp aim could be adjusted.

A good way to work out aiming is to only change one bulb, then point the bike at a wall or garage door at night (or in your garage with the door closed, anywhere you can clearly see the pattern). Bike must be held upright, but not on a center stand, as that won't give an accurate picture. You'll quickly see whether the LED lamp is throwing a higher or lower pattern than the stock bulb, and can adjust accordingly.

I moved to LED headlamps to save power, because I needed it for heated gear.

I used to own a 9th gen sport and wanted to do the same upgrade as you.

Where’d you get your cluster done at? Mines looking pretty dim but on later 1st gens they soldered in the bulbs which makes replacing them not as easy and I’m not comfortable enough to do it myself.

For the doors I got these: AUXITO 194 LED Light Bulb 6000K...

They also work in other areas like the map lights, license plate lights, and I think even the bed light but I haven’t tried it yet.

I used these for the dome lights in the rear: LUYED 2 X 570 Lumens Super Bright...

My AC control doesn’t have working lights either, sometimes the fan speed side comes on if I hit it but not all the time so I’d love an answer for this too.

Just so you know I have a 2007 Silverado Classic so it should match yours

u/fatasianboi · 1 pointr/infiniti

These are 194's theyll work in the trunk and the running light in the headlight housing and for license plate lights

oh i didnt even notice that you said Q50, these are for my g35 and g37's im sure infiniti hasnt changed the bulb size but id double check to be sure.
This site is what i usually go by and it says there arent bulbs to change.

my best advice is to yank out the OEM bulb and look for a part size, if they do indeed match one of these auxito lights, it will defintiely make a HUGE difference.

I had this problem with my thruxton. The resistance in the LED's is too low and it thinks your bulbs are burnt out. Add some resistors in series with the bulbs and it will work just fine.
