Good info but contains an error.

As i just found out yesterday when i changed my front turn bulbs to silverstars, the US STI is using 1157's for the front, not 3457's
i'd bought the 3457's months back, didnt keep the receipt
Also, i dunno why they list the wrong bulb 3 times, i only found 1 in my headlight...

question on the above part, is the trunk area light the same for the 4 dr and 5 dr? i've been trying to find the packaging size of that odd bulb so i can get a LED replacement. i hope thats the one..

im this much closer to converting all interior lights to white leds....

For my trunk light i just used a 194/168 wedge bulb from superbrightleds. The one with 5 mini led's. works fine, a nice bright light. So i got the dome, the maps, and the trunk done. Any i missed?
