Silver stars are a nice bright bulb. HID's are a waste of time without a projector housing to direct the light correctly.

I also want to take the map lights out of my rear-view mirror, what would be the best way to do this? I want to put LEDs in the mirror

So just saw the first pic and I thought hey that looks firmiliar lol considering I just got done drawing it today. Nice to c your up here looks like your Mods are going well ive got the brand new Amazon Depots in the back on my car right now planning on putting them in soon and finishing out the Blackd out theme.

Btw Ive replaced every bulb in my car including the cluster with LEDs just a heads up they can be a pain so make sure you buy extras. The Map lights are easy just use a Blade and pop out the plastic clear covers. just making sure the LEDs are getting a good contact or they will flicker ive had to replace a few of mine in the Cluster they were the biggest pain. Good Luck!

Thanks a bunch. Im working on the exterior LED lights to replace. The tail light LEDs are expensive as hell through superbrightleds. All the interior is LED except the Dash cluster and the map lights, I might let them go for awhile. I plan on doing maybe a couple more cosmetic stuff, SFCs, and a stereo set-up and Im calling it good. How do you get the bulbs out of the sockets tho on the maplights?
