todd uses all 194s... i found something (well he did rather and showed me) that says 168, 194, and 921 bulbs all fit and function in the same applications. which leads me to wonder why the hell arent they all the same number. as far as poop... i wasn't very impressed with his knowledge on finding my H4 and H1 bulbs, i ended up explaining more to him than him to me.

and just so you know... i ordered nokya arctic white h4 and h1s today, prolly gonna use 194 hyper white leds in the corners

well difference in those bulbs could be size of the actual bulb, and they could have the same socket size(dont ask the point of this except to take up more of the housing.maybe....
anyways, congrats on the bulbs...LED's should be really bright in corners. Tood's blue ones in the doors look really good.
wish i had money to buy stuff....stupid engine.

im thinking 192 is the choice... still has 3 candle power and lasts longer, the wattage and amperage #s shouldnt matter much, especially with such a small bulb.... of course i'm thinking LED is in a category of its own

LED's but, gotta think of availibility of 192's....maybe its not as readily available in special colors and such.
