LED Bulbs 168

Alright guys..theres probably a bajillion threads on this..but maybe this is different..alright the bulbs im going to want to get are 2 amber in the front, 2 white on the dome, and in the middle probably a green, and in the trunk maybe another green..well anyway it comes out to 12.14..

The bulbs are 74-x Wedge Base LED bulb

now heres where my question comes in..whats the different between those and 74-xHP Wedge Base LED bulb? are they really more brighter..or just a little more brighter/not worth the extra 8 bucks

I'm really interested in getting all LEDs as well, inside and out. I'm lazy and don't want to have to figure out which bulbs I need. I have an SH, so if someone just wants to tell me which bulbs I need to get that would be great.

p.s. If the blue ones aren't too blue then I want them otherwise cool white is fine.

So how is the brightness and clarity? Is there much of a difference between the two? What color did you get?

Lastly, did you get the WLED-x6 LED bulb and WLED-WHP Pure White High Power?

I'm surprised that you're not used to decyphering yogi's typing. It's actually kind of interesting sometimes. HAha. Anyways...I think he was saying that he got blue bulbs for the front of the car (parking light I'm assuming) and red bulbs for the interior, because red is easier on the eyes and allows you to see in the dark without disrupting your field of vision outside.

Wow...I know realize that yogi may have made more sense than I did.

P.S. Yogi, Be careful with those blue LED'sin your parking lights. John Q. Law may have something to say about it. They tend not to like blue or red bulbs on the front of cars.

P.S.S. I've got the hyper-white bulbs in my parking lights. I definitley recommend those...or just striaght white.

flyby is on a distinguished road
ok, in the LED, is there a bright reverse light LED that would be good? I have changed out the city lights in front with Raybrig hyper whites (blu-white tinted) but they do not seems very bright in output/lumens?

An LED bulb for the reverse lights? Yes, its a 7440 bulb. One thing though...I'm not sure if this normally happens, but my reverse light bulbs are always lit to some extent. At night, if the car is running, without any lights on whatsoever, i can still see the reverse bulbs glowing dimly. It actually looks really cool.
Also when I went to the honda stealership to get a diagnostic check done, they said there was a code thrown for a busted reverse light. They're both fine, I guess its just because theyre LEDs?

superbrightleds.com has them. (I got the 6LED bulbs)
