    Posted: 12-Sep-2008 at 19:20
So, my passenger side city light burned out the other day. I'm going to make one fell swoop and replace ALL of my bulbs at once, even the back ones. Because, with my luck, I'll replace one and the other one will go out.

Is there any place online I can buy all the bulbs? The H7s, W5Ws, D2S...ALL of them. I would like to replace the city lights with LED's from 42 Draft Designs but I don't know which one is compatible.

TIA!

I also had saved a thread with information regarding a seller on eBay who sells the HIDs. I looked into that last night and they're no longer a registered user.

By all your bulbs, do you mean interior as well?

Check out......

SuperBrightLeds.com

I bought from them before, good bulbs, fast shipping & good prices.

The D2S are $$$. I got my from an ebay store, HID-Concept. The prices everywhere else were pretty high for the HIDs.

So are these the lights you ordered Jon? I could have sworn you said they were cheaper than this, but it beats paying $300+ for a pair, plus there's free shipping on these.

those are them. I think i paid little less, just under $100. I can't find my record of it and it's been so long ebay has deleted it.

It might be worth while to check into additional sources. I recall most places being around $120 for one.

A local guy recently told be about a "Beijing special" that was a lot less: http://www.vvme.com/catalog/list-s-10145-10146.html. Their prices are dirt cheap, and the local guy likes them, but I can not in good faith recommend them myself. Someone pointed out that the color chart here was photo-shoped (notice the sky is purple!)

I like the old adage, "you get what you pay for."

Hello,

I blew two of my DRL's in the past two month.
Each Bulb was $146 and I reinstalled them.

Now, I'm running without DRL since I pulled relay #173
I also replaced all inside lights with LEDs and my City Lights as well as Side Markers are LEDs.

Such a sudden change might mess with your Cars Computer and LEDs might be flickering. Reset the Computer by pulling of the Ground Cable from the Battery. Everything worked fine for me, even the Radio!

How can changing bulbs mess with the computer? I know Ben (straightw8) has LED's for city lights and he has no problems...I've never heard of such a thing I guess. I'm always learning something new about my ride!
