I just did blue ones, so it looks different when I open my doors. As sson as it's dark I'll get a picture of what it looks like.

It would be fine as long as you don't drive around with them on, that's when it gets ricey.

Your car is red, go for red.

Kevin

P.S. The local parts store will have some red bulbs that will look too long for the bults in the rear seats, but they fit. They're brighter because they're 10w instead of the stock 5w but they work. Plus it's like 6 bucks so if you dont like it you didn't really get burned.

thanks

Ditto that! The idea of having different interior lights had been contemplating around my head for awhile now, the problem was that no one really gave me any straight forward answers about where to buy or what size, etc. Any one else out there no any more info about this? PLease post it. By the way, when you say local pars shop, do you mean like an Autozone or a BMW shop?

Booyashaka!!!

I mean like autozone. Check out the "ricer section" (sorry to say) or ask them for colored interior lights. What you have to understand with these lights, is they're very very simple 12v little lights. They don't have to be exact. The little ends just need to fit into the holes in the tabs.

Even if the bulb is longer than the ones for the back, it WILL still fit, there's tons of room in that housing. They will most likely have a bulb to fit the front dome light however.

I got bulbs for the back that were 10w instead of 5w, so they're brighter. I have yet too see if it looks good cause I just did it today.

Pics will be up in a couple hours, it's starting to get dark. I'm thinking night photo shoot.

Everyone knows what I'm talking about... you've all seen the nitrous kits, and big shift lights and wings in one little area at autozone.

I notice nobody voted for it, besides me

I guess you all are just against the driving with them on part, right. right!?! I'm against that too.
