Vanity Lights

Has anyone replaced the vanity mirror lights? Are they the same size as in the dome lights (T6). The size isnt in the manual. I was thinking of replacing them since they look really dim compared to the domes which I replaced with the hyper whites.

Would hyper whites be too bright?? Would you be able to see the mirror with those directly in your face?

I just replaced my domes with hyper white as well, soooo much better. That's funny because my wife opened up the vanity mirror lastnight and as soon as those lights came on another light bulb popped on above my head "maybe I should replace those as well" (my wife laughed at me) I'm going to leave them as is since the mirrors hardly ever get used anyways...

same here, just installed t6 piaas
my cell phone pics suck!

first pic is one stock light with one piaa


second pic is of both piaas


I also installed them for the rear lights as well

I didnt install the mirror ones, I feel it would be too bright, I wish they had a dimmer so u can regulate to brightness on the vanity mirror.

I might replace the rear deck stop light bulbs with the piaas. if there are that bright with the interior, i wonder how the brake light would shine.

Where is the best place (i.e. low price, good customer service, fast shipping, etc.) to order the Piaa light blubs?? I want to replace the fog lights and now that you guys are talking about it, the interior lights could be a little brighter.

i replaced my liscense plate light as well to hyper whites, looks a lot cleaner. i also replaced the door lights and trunk light to hyperwhite as well.

the floor lights i replaced with white LEDs.

all of the bulbs mentioned above are 194 bulbs and i got a pack of 10 hyperwhite 194s off ebay. forgot the price but i dont remember it being expensive.
