The reason why you cant get the housing out is because it is screwed in... not clipped. Can you get the spotlight out?

I used the 194 or "T10" (another name for it) in my door lights, high mount brake lights, and my license plate... They all work just fine. And shine where theyre supposed to. Only spent $10 on 10 of them on ebay from a store here in Houston.

So I've done most of the smaller led swaps but now I'm looking at the taillights. How much brighter will the LEDs be vs stock?

They are so much brighter and they are more white than the stock ones. I ordered mine on eBay and they are great.

Not sure if It was posted in here or not, but does anybody know how many of each bulb you need? Meaning which ones are a festoon bulb and how many and how many are not?

If I can avoid going out to the garage and pulling off the lenses to look I'd like that :P

God am i ever confused.. could anyone post exact links to superbrightleds products for every light? It seems so simple to me but as soon as I start looking at 194, 3157, etc... I have no idea which one to decide since there are so many. Not sure if anyone would be willing to take the time to do this but I think with the number of subs, it would be appreciated. Really wanna do this!

Go to ebay and find a lot with 5 194 bulbs. You'll want the ones with 5 SMD LED's.
http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...w=150793635333

For the dome you'll want the 578 with 16 SMD's. I've had these for over 6 months with no issues.
