I was going to try these.

They're 31mm. I measured the OE festoon bulbs to be about 28mm. I'm hoping they'll work. I might not use the cargo lights but it would be nice to have the same white light.

Unlike the polarity issues I had with VLEDs 2 and 4 LED flanks in the doors and rear dome,you didn't have any polarity issues with those flanks.
Good to know.

The bulbs didn't work. I managed to get one to fit but it popped out. Looked good while it lasted. I'm bringing them to my installer next week to see what he can do. He said he could also do an LED strip.

I managed to find 29mm bulbs from V-LEDS. I didn't notice there was a second page on their website

http://www.v-leds.com/Interior-LED/D...-p7975517.html

I will be ordering these and sending back the others. This has been an exercise in frustration between the difficult to remove lenses and inability to find the right cargo light bulb I'll be glad when it's done.

I appreciate your efforts though I would end up with a ton of spare/wrong size bulbs if it wasn't for advice in this thread.

Cargo lights are finally installed. They are a tad bigger than the OE bulbs but work. The light is pretty white and a huge improvement. Pictures don't do justice plus I have a black interior.

Next on the list will be the blinkers, thanks to TR3XX. When will it end

Thanks for the update Anita, I'm glad they fit. Next stop V-LEDS.com

Sorry if this was asked but any plans to switch out the DRL with 9005 LEDs? I got them install but am waiting for daylight to get a good picture of them. I hope they look nice.


BTW, I got the front parking light and fogs switched out. Thanks to everyone for the bulb reference, the lights in the front are now all white.

DRLs were changed out during the summer along with the parking lights and fogs.

I'll have to take pictures when the Philips bulbs come in. What's next
