Yes, HP for gauge cluster and HVAC from superbrightleds.

For my dome lights I used these in cool white.

For my courtesy lights I used these in cool white.

how are those festoon 4410 - x9 in the domes? My buddy put them in his and they were noticeably dimmer than the regular halogen bulbs because they are not high power. They only come in the regular version.

How is the light out of that single LED in the floor lights? I see its a high power SMD. Are they brighter than the stock bulb?

The courtesy lights to me are brighter than the stock, and the white light looks nice. The domes aren't as bright as the factory bulbs but it's still plenty enough light for me to see what I need to at night

Finally did LEDS this weekend...I went with the white for the dash which looks awesome and did the blue in the HVAC unit which I'm not too crazy about. The blue is an awesome color but is way different blue color than my pioneer HU. Think I'm gonna switch them out for white too

i did the 5 bulbs in the cluster and the 3 in my HVAC unit. your HVAC unit will still light up blue even with white bulbs because of the film in the unit.

I used (5) 74-xHP3 in white for my cluster -and- (3) NEOx-xHP for my HVAC from superbrightleds.com

do you have the HVAC unit with the slides or the knobs? If you have the slides which I think you do then you will use different bulbs

Did anyone have issues with the HVAC (the ones with the dials ) I replaced mine with LEDs from superbrightled and they are all bright and give off a good light spread exept the dial on the right it is only bright on the right side of it and the left side get very little light. It's driving me nuts. I have tried to rotate it but it did not help... I want an even light spread. What should I do?

I would have thought that the bulb is in wrong. Mine did the same thing and I had to take it out, turn it around and then everything lit up evenly. Make sure to verify that the bulb is indeed lighting up.

the think the HVAC bulbs are polarized so it doesnt matter which way you put them in. If you have a dark spot it sounds to me that one of your bulbs are not lighting which would cause only partial lighting from the bulb before it in the unit. I know I had to really turn mine for them to light...the superbrighled bulbs are alot tighter in the socket than the factory bulbs were. I would pull the unit and see if they are all lighting

Ha, that's probably the issue I was having, not that it was in backwards, but that it wasn't in tight enough. They are a much tighter fit than the factory bulbs.

I was looking at SuperbrightLeds.com to replace my taillights. Can anyone recommend what bulb they went with. I dont want to buy a bulb that winds up not being bright enough, but I also did not want to spend 25 per bulb if I did not have too.
