What is the bulb # for the US 5-door trunk light? I have been searching all over for the last 3 hours today (not counting all the other time I've spent looking), and can't find it. From what I have been able to find out, IT IS NOT THE SAME SIZE AS TEH 4-DOOR, which is a 74 bulb. The bulb in my trunk is kind of large, not small like in the 4-door. I am replacing every bulb in my car (excluding brakes and reverse), and am ready to purchase my remaining list on superbrightleds.com, but I am waiting for this one light. Every resource I have found keeps giving me the 4-door bulb #.

For extra credit, what would the LED equivalent be on superbrightleds.com?

Thanks.

hahahah i searched forever to try and find it...i don't think it's posted...

i bought the 3022-x4 LED Festoon bulb

it's not the exact same bulb (slight size difference, but it fits fine), it works and gives off light and thats what i would recommend

tad bit too large, but the holder is spring steel so it fits...just a little tight

i've always thought about upgrading to LED's but always rather spend my money on making my car faster, even if its just a better wax to cut through the wind...LOL...j/k about the wax thing

For me it's all about the feel of the car. And since I hate yellow-white light, its hyper-white for me. I am even switching out every bulb in my house, haha. Also, I am all about small, subtle distinction. I can't stand huge 'attention getting' mods that serve no real purpose than to draw attention (IE the vast majority of ricers). And speaking of ricers, I can't stand it when people will spend money to get a crappy sounding exhaust system, and not fix their cracked/unpainted front bumper. All they are doing is drawing more unwanted attention to a crappy car. "But imagine what it will look like when it's done!" Umm..... no.

....went a little off topic there, haha. But yeah. Lights ordered. Hopefully they will get here around the same time as my Silverstars.

Friggin sweet, bro!

I put my 4 LED in yesterday during the day, and I thought it was a little weak, but at night, it lights up very well. Same w/vanity lights, holy lord they light up the whole car!
