4 Important Steps On Choosing The Best Aftermarket Car LED Interior Lights
- Apr 16, 2018 -

For most newer Luxury vehicles like the new Acura TL, the Lexus GS, the cool awesome LED interior lights have become standard equipped.


Wondering how you can add the same awesome new look for your car, you can find it out here.


Step 1: You need to count how many lights you need to replace with the LED bulbs.


Take 2010 Cadillac Escalade for example, there are two front seat map reading lights, 2 second row dome lights and 2 third row cargo area lights plus 2 front side door courtesy lights. For many other cars, you should also crouch down and check under the front driver seat and passenger seat for under dash foot area lights.


Step 2: After figuring out how many lights are there, you need to find out each individual light's bulb size. You can either check the famous Osram Bulb Fitment Guide or simply explorer it yourself.


If you decide to use the Osram Guide, simply type Osram Bulb Guide in Big G and follow its step by step guide by entering the vehicle year, model and find out the bulb size. Or for a more DIY spirit, you can use a small flat screw driver, pop up each light's cover and get the bulb size yourself.


There are 5 common size light bulbs for the car interior lights:

Fully glass peanut shape bulb, known as 2825, 168, or 194

Bayonet metal base peanut shape bulb, know as 58, 3886X or 6411

Festoon shape bulb with metal contacts on each end, measured at 1.25 inches, known as DE3175 or DE3022

Festoon shape bulb with metal contacts on each end, measured at 1.50 inches, know as 6411, 6418 or DE3425

Festoon shape bulb with metal contacts on each end, measured at 1.72 inches, know as 578, 211-2, 212-2 or 214-2


Write down how many each type of bulbs you need.


Step 3: It is time to figure out which color suites the better.


For interior lights on the roof such as map lights, dome lights or cargo area lights, I personally think the Xenon White color will be better, because occasionally you do need them to read something. Beside map or dome lights, you can choose any other colors such as Ultra Blue, Brilliant Red or Lime Green.


Of course, you rarely use the map lights or dome lights, and just want to set a nice mood to your car, you can choose any color.


Step 4: It's time to choose the LED bulbs; I will recommend you guys the latest LED lights with Surface Mounting Technology also known as SMD or SMT LED bulbs.


It is one of the brightest also has the widest selections available for the Car LED lights.


After all of these preparations, you should have no problem getting the best LED bulbs for your car interior lights and let everyone else envy you!
