Hi,

I am looking to upgrade all the interior lights (front/mid/rear dome) and my license plate and reverse lights. I already found a company that will sell LED bulbs, but they currently do not have the part info for my vehicle.

I've checked the owner's manual, Sylvania website, kiatechinfo.com, my local dealership, and even local auto parts stores. All of them were less than helpful.

Any idea where I can find the universal part numbers for these bulbs?

I believe I have the correct info for the reverse and license plate lights, but I'm not positive.

Thanks!

vanity mirror lamps (behind the visor)-31mm festoon
map lights (front)- t10 type of leds
mid dome- 31mm festoon
trunk/cargo-36mm festoon
PLEASE DO CHECK AND TRY TO OPEN THE HOUSING FIRST BEFORE BUYING SO YOU CAN ESTIMATE THE FITMENT OF THE LEDS YOU LIKE


plate no. 36mm-festoon


reverse bulb is 921- any t10 led will fit

t10 leds varies in sizes and no. of leds.. the more leds the brighter but check housing/estimate fitment..

Very nice and thank you.

Could you refer the place you bought it from?

Also the festoon should be of standard size (like 6 Leds within the diameter of the bulb). Because I saw one with wider pattern with 9 leds while browsing amazon

Thanks again..

Yeah, thanks definitely. I'd like to have brighter lights in my interior and will be looking into these. I bought some for my GSX-R 600 turn signals/brake lights so people could see me a little better, and they worked well. You could def see me when I stopped!
