So I saw a topic for the longest lasting h1's and decided to follow suit.

I'm looking for a long lasting and white 194's for my parking lights. Right now, i'm running the Hyperwhite 194's from autoillumination, they have more or a blue/purple/white thing going on, but they last longer the the hyperwhites from superbrightleds, from which I hear, blow out in like 2 months.

The stockers last a long time, but give off that yellow look, which doesn't complement my lumincs and clear side markers.

Has anyone found a solution to a white bulb that lasts long (194)?

I think there's no sure answer for this thread.

For example, I have LEDs from autolumination on my car. I already replaced the interior dome LEDs at least once since 2003. However, the funny thing is that my 4LEDs amber on my parking lights are still running from 2003. If you read around, you'll find that 99% of the time, the parking lights go bad very quickly (mostly because the heat).

So why are my parking lights longer lasting than the interior dome lights? I have no idea because it's supposed to be the other way around.

After melting a bunch of 4 bulb LED's in the parking lights I ended up going with a 1 LED inverted bulb. No problems in the last year. I think the thicker plastic around the bulb helps.

64 mods (so far) Too much money spent

Which bulb sizes do you have for the sidemarkers and parking lights

Same question: Which bulb sizes do you have for the sidemarkers and parking lights

I like the purple/white look of the 194s I have in the interior from autoillum, but I would rather have a crisp white look for the sidemarkers and parking lights.

I found a regular bulb at AZ that is much whiter and brighter than the 194s. It is a 2425 type for &#39;european&#39; applications. I&#39;ll try to get the vendor info and post it. I got tired of messing with flakey, dim leds and found these regular bulbs are cheap and bright.
