Has anyone done a retrofit of LEDs for their front parking lights (7443)
license plate lights (168)
rear side markers (194)
reverse lights (921)

I just wanted to know where you got your lights from. I shopped autolumination, and all their LEDs have warnings that their bulbs are slightly larger than stock lamps ( which I knew )
but what kinds did you use and did they fit with no shaving ??

Autolumination is where I got mine. there was a group buy thread from a year or two back with the exact ones many of us got. Some use superbrightleds as well.

Yeah, that group buy was several years ago -- you're going to have to order the bulbs yourself. I've used both superbrightleds and autolumination, and my opinions are the following: 1) superbrightleds are much brighter than other LEDs I've seen or used, however some superbrightled bulbs began to flicker rather quickly, 2) autolumination bulbs are constructed a little more solidly than the superbrights, and last a while longer. I currently have superbrightleds 7440 bulbs for my front turn signals, and autolumination 194 bulbs for my license plate lights. If you are going for interior bulbs, I would recommend the autolumination ones.

I had the 5 led matrix from autolumination, and they didnt hold up. The vibration from slamming the hatch killed them. I have the 194 Supernova Bulbs now and they hold up great.

I've had the 5 LED Wedge Matrix ones from autolumination on my FX's rear plate for quite a while now (over a year), and they are holding up fine. Conversely, I got the same bulbs for my wife's 350z and they started flickering after 1 month. I replaced them with the same bulbs, thinking it was a bad batch, but the same thing happened again 2 months later. I think some cars' electrical systems are harder on the LED bulbs.
