    bet that is blinding as hell if your passenger has to use the map light at night...lol...I like the Dome light idea though.

    You should look at http://www.superbrightleds.com/ I think they might be cheaper. Lots of members (including myself) have purchased from them without issue.

    the ones at autozone are universal. so you shouldnt need any codes.

    I put some 'hyper' white bulbs in my map lights that look wayyy more white than the overhead light, so I may pick one of these LED ones up tomorrow for the overhead one lol. Looks good!

    O.K. Thanks for the information. I think I will do this soon. With the oncoming fall/winter darkness the map lights are almost useless and the dome light could use a kick too.

    Wow, I just came across this thread and couldn't be happier because I wasn't exactly thrilled on waiting for an order to ship. I also wasn't too keen on getting a set that is too dim when the key is not turned (As some have reported). So I just stopped by Autozone and picked up the "Type S 20" and 2 "Type S 12" white LED lights that the OP bought. They are not in the same spot as the headlights. Instead, they are in the section with the bling-bling extras (like shifter knobs, license plate frames, lighted washer nozzles, etc...at least they are in my store).

    BTW - They came with different connectors which can fit different sized sockets and they are pretty bright (but not super bright which is good).

    Thanks for the find!!!!!

    Dude how do you have the one right above your head? I have the dome light but not the two small ones up front. Did you add that yourself or was it in there when you bought it?

    Is it hard to get the covers off the two map lights up front? I have taken the middle dome cover off and it is no problem but just wondering about the map lights. Plan on doing this over the weekend!

    dang it. I've been super busy and didn't install the map lights until tonight...I just did the dome light because I use it every morning whereas I hardly use the map lights. Anyways, it appears these won't work in the front map lights because they just give you different types of festoon adapters...no adapter for the 168 type bulbs that we have. I may just put these in my wife's car instead.

    But at least the dome light looks are works great! :)
