Brighter corner lights

I got bored earlier today and noticed one of my corner lights were out so i changed the bulb and all I had were bigger ones for a dodge but they plugged in the same way so I changed them both to the bigger bulb. They are surprisingly alot brighter! Just curious if anybody else has done this or anything similar?

921 bulbs work nicely.

T15, 921 LEDs are bright, but you might run into heat problems and not many of them are any brighter than a 921 bulb.

I was actually just looking for some better LEDs. I haven't decided on what I want. I have gone through a lot of them. I was thinking of trying Cree 921 7.5w bulbs since they have heatsinks.

I will Deffinately be changing out all exterior and interior lights to LEDs as soon as I have the money to. But this was just me fiddling around the shop today. An I was wondering what other people have done with there corners

For now I decided to use 921 bulbs. I had T-15/921 LEDs, but a few of the chips went out. I have gone through many types of SMD LED bulbs in the corner lights. They always have problems and they are not bright enough for me. I am hoping V-LEDS makes their new V3 Triton in a T10/15 base soon.
