Clear your front turn signals and replace the amber bulbs with these.
those are good.. but v-leds have the ones with ALOT more LEDs (ofcourse higher price) but they show alot more in the day time.. keep in mind that the reflectors dont work as good with LEDs because they werent made for them.. thats why im ruuning the bigger v-leds in mine i think around 92 LED towers lol.. but they both work the same

Lots of good info, thanks.
I think I'm gonna leave the turn signals and brake lights alone for now, and maybe put some stealth bulbs in there until I feel like playing with them more. Sometime in the next week or so I will be ordering the LED bulbs for the interior, license plate, high mount stop light, and maybe the ones in the trunk lid.

SAMz, I really like the color and brightness of the bulbs you have here:

Where did you get them?

I love LEDs. I converted my explorer, and for such a little change, it is unbelievably satisfying. Really gives you an impression of being modern, and you can't complain about the instant on instead of the warm up of incandescent. YAY SAFETY!

The Bonneville will be the next to get an LED conversion. Will be going to the later style clear headlights later on too with a projector retrofit. Bi-Xenon HID in the low-beam and probably just do LEDs in the high beam and just change it to a daytime running light.

You might want to check out Oznium. I use the dome lights in my truck and they really light it up.

k heres how mine goes

Front turn signals

Rear turn signals one of the members mentioned that red could be illegal in some states for the rear turn signals, you might wanna look into that if you want the same setup as mine, i picked red so that itll match the bottom red, and i hate amber lol

Reverse light

Licence Plate & Glove compartment i wouldnt take a chance on buying something else for the licence plate light because i had 2 different ones and they didnt fit

Interior dome/map lights you will need 4 for the roof and 2 for the floor right next to your feet, the floor ones you have to solder a wire on the end of it to hang the bulbs. once you remove the bulbs you will understand what im talking about

Trunk light

Sun Visor this will blind the **** out of you at night when you first open it.. its nice though lol

Load equalizer needed when installing LED bulbs in front ONLY OR rear ONLY turn signals, you must tab it next to each bulb

Load equalizer needed when installing LED bulbs in front AND rear turn signals, you must tab it next to bulb on the front OR back only, not both i tabbed it to the back and used double sided tape to mount it on the body of the car, this way when you open the hood it doesnt show

keep in mind that some bulbs are sold as a pair and some are sold as singles, so keep yours eyes open
Again, this is not the only option, its just what i used and im more than satisfied with it
Hopefully i didnt forget anything, if i did or you have any questions please let me know.

you're more than welcome, glad i can help

im pretty sure front signal, rear signal, reverse & licence plate are the same

trunk, sun visor and interior lights might be different

IIRC my 97 bonneville had 194 bulbs interior lighting, but i could be wrong

someone with -99 bonneville will chime in soon

Anyone know the bulbs I would need to use to convert the interior lights to LED? I want to do the visor lights, the lights in the doors and the lights on the sides on top by the Oh **** Handles. I want all of them to be bright white. Any help would be great. I have a 99 Bonne.
