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.
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.
