Mouse,

Thanks for pointing out SAMzGXP'* experience with LED lights.

I hadn't considered dual-color bulbs, although I'm reading such cautions as this, which brings up another reason to be sure I do my research... "f you have a standard socket and try installing this bulb may cause a dead short and blow your fuse or will not light on the parking element."

Oh, and regarding SAMz recommendation, I cant imagine anything worse than to "blind the **** out of" myself at night, with high intensity vanity mirror lights, in the sun visors. I like to preserve my night vision, when I'm driving at night, thank you. LOL

You shouldn't be looking in the vanity mirrors while driving anyway.

I recently did the full conversion on my 00 Regal. Overall I liked all the lights I picked up from Autolumination and they have great customer service when you have an issue. (Regals have goofy sockets on one bulb in the car).

Lumens is the measure of light output on the bulbs.
