SlowFosho's Mods

Hey guys,

I recently replaced the interior (dome and vanity) and license plate lights with LED lights. I also plan on doing an HID Retrofit and LED DRL Fog lights in the near future. I figured I'd create a single thread for my mods.

Here are pics of the interior and license plate lights. You can tell how bright they are by the way the license plate lights light up the floor.

I too put in LEDs inside and out and they made a huge improvement. I do not think mine are quite as bright as your though at least outside, those are insane! Good job! What brand are those?

I'm not sure of the brand but these are the exact same ones that I used to buy from superbrightleds.com for $5 each. I bought the complete set for $16.99 on ebay.

I like the white light...looks much better than default. Any difficulty replacing the old bulbs? Any caveats?

I've replaced several of these wedge bulbs, so it was easy for me. The license plate lights were a bit trickier, but only took me about 5 minutes to do.

Here are some pictures and instructions for the vanity lights. If I remember correctly, our vanity light covers come off from the side, not the bottom.

The license plate lights can be removed like this.

Nope, mine were plug and play and I was done with them all in 10 minutes. Hardest part is figuring out how to open all the lenses up. Massive improvement, I used these bulbs on someone elses recommendation here and they too worked fine. Not as bright as the ones above though lol!

Amazon Amazon

Photos of my LEDs to compare are on this thread:

Changed to whiter headlight bulbs today - Several photos!

I did not grab interior shots though when I did that thread, but it looks much the same as 1SlowHRVs photos. I did get my foglight bulbs changed to match the headlights and it look GREAT now. Very glad I did all the bulbs as it makes it look much nicer to me anyway.

Hey Razer,

Since you're a super mod, can you figure out why my last reply wasn't posted? It said it was awaiting moderator approval. I posted some links with instructions on how to change the lights along with a youtube video.

Has anybody tried LED's for the backup lights?

I think the stock lights are pretty weak, although the backup camera is a huge help.

That's gonna be my next mod, along with LED fog light bulbs. I had some really bright white Cree LED bulbs in a previous car that I'm planning on getting for the HRV.

I logged in and checked but I did not find anything in my control panel for you - I know it has happened to some others here from time to time but it is something automatic I believe in the forums anti-spam service. You may try again and see what happens, if it still does not work I'll get the site admin on it for you. Sorry!
