Default Kia Rondo bulb sizes.

Just wondering if anyone has a complete list of all the different bulb sizes used on the Rondo. I did not see this in my owners manual like in all my other cars...

Nope.
The map lights are 175 (stronger version of 168 = 5W), while 175 is 10W, although base is same.

Dome light is festoon 31 mm (I think) or 35mm. I think these are 7W or so.

Trunk is same. Festoon.

I am questioning the bulb size of the pinky sized bulb that lights up in the headlight when the parking lights are on this can't be a 2357A its the bulb below the high beam I believe.

you are right
it is 168. I assume you are talking about the small one inside high beam reflector. The same one (168) is in the side marker - the orange one, on the side of car, and also in rear lamps.

Actually, the front turn signals are indeed bi-filament (7/28W) but the lower (7W) one is not connected to anything.

BTW - thanks for the pics.

I thought it had to be a 168 bulb...I just changed out my license light bulbs to LED bulbs they are amazing compared to stock made them look dingy yellow..the plan is to change that front 168 bulb to an LED bulb as well.

I changed all 168s with LED. I am waiting for 15 SMD 5050 LED panel for trunk light, and probably will replace dome lights, too.
I changed map light with 20 SMD 5050 LED panel to test how it works. It may be too bright, though. Besides, that panel was too big to fit inside there.

eBay...

Light Panel 20SMD LED 29-42mm Dome Interior Festoon 12v - eBay (item 250792559227 end time Apr-20-11 20:08:59 PDT)

And some pics...

Maybe it is not so obvious from them, but the map light (driver side, 20 SMD 5050 LED panel) is very bright and strong comparing to stock light bulb. I think I will switch it to 9 SMD. Will see...
For comparison both are on. The color is very hard to present as cameras will pick up white balance. I defined it based on some off white light, but still - it is not perfect.

License plate: festoon 3 SMD LED.
Headlight - compare the colors. Low beam is 4300K HID, while the LED (168 base) is 5 SMD 5050 LED at about 6000K. Used the same white balance.
