Dome Lights
NE1 know where I can find the BEST and BRIGHTEST dome light? I've had the PIAA Xtreme White for quite a while, but it burned out recently, and I now want a BRIGHTER one!!! Please help.

Thanx!

I thought about LEDs, but the thing is, although U gain brightness, U lose actual light space. I mean, the area that the bulb lights up is less than a regular bulb, it's more focused on an LED bulb. And where can I find the bulbs (I.e. websites)?

you can buy leds that shine in a strait line, and you can buy them that shine at a wider angle...

i always just go to radio shack and get em... the resistors are like 5 for $0.99 so its relatively cheap to work with.


light bulbs do put out a more filling light though.

i have 3 led's in my dome light assembly but the focus is a problem (and it does have a 'wide' focus as far as led's are concerned).

so far i have found nothing that is as bright as the stock bulb

Y'all don't seem to have a sun roof. What can I get as a replacement for the 12 volt bulb that's brighter (The dome light bulb is different for fols with the sunroof)?

I have a sun roof and the only thing I hate about the dome light is it really doesnt light up the back. I keep most of my junk behind the passanger seat and if I cant find it by feeling around some light would come in handy

The PIAA Xtreme Whites were really bright. I'm even thinking of buying another pair. I was just wondring if there were NE bulbs that were BRIGHTER
