As requested, I summarized the list of OEM bulb types as well as the upgrades I installed in my FX45 (parenthesis) for your reference. Please note that all LEDs were purchased from superbrightleds.com and reference their catalog#s. SuperbrightLEDs manufacture their own high-quality LEDs in Flourissant , MO. here in the USA.
High-low beam: HID-D2S (8000K Xetronic HID-DS2)
Parking/Clearance Light: 7443 (7443-15 LED WHITE)
Fog-Driving Light: 9006 (9006/HB4 PIAA Super Spark Blues 7500K)
Front Turn Signal: 7440 (7440 Stealth Chrome/Amber) - You can also go with the LED 7440 equivalent with a load resistor kit.
License Plate: 168 (Type 194/168 WLED-6 WHITE)
Back-up Light: 921 (921 WLED-9 WHITE)
Front/Rear Sidemarker: 194 (Type 194/168 Matching Amber/Red WLED-6 soon)
Map Light: 3175 (3022 4-LED Festoon WHITE)
Dome Light: 3175 (3022 4-LED Festoon WHITE)
Trunk/Cargo: 3175 (3022 4-LED Festoon WHITE)
Other opera lights: 3175 (3022 4-LED Festoon WHITE)
Any other lights such as the rear tailights, 3rd brake light, etc. that aren't referenced here already have LEDs as OEM equipment. Also, I've taken the time to add description headers to every pic which I have posted. You'll notice that there are larger# LEDs available from superbrightleds for some of these bulb types, but I've already experimented or checked their specs. They become too big to fit into the light housing even though the base are the same. More LEDS=greater brightness/intensity. I went with the largest # of LEDs I could here so these are optimized!
Cumulatively, I hope this makes it much easier for everyone to choose/experiment with the bulbs that they like on their FXs.
Have fun and good luck!
