What is the right bulb for dome light???

I want to replace the dome lights in my car. The one near the sunroof controller (middle light) and the two rear lights. I want to put blue/white bulbs in there and I need to know what type to order.

Any ideas on what type, and where to order these from?

Thanks, Zibby.

Any idea where I can get the colored blue bulbs? Do Sylvania and/or Philips make them?

Thanks again Zibby.

Only problem is that this site doesn't have those bulb numbers that you referred me to. Any ideas?

Take out your original bulb, mesure the length of the bulb(they look the same , but some are longer or shorter) , then compare with a chart.You can also call them for cross references.
