i have the white 5led wide angles for the sidemarkers.....i cant say im completely satisfied, cuz i thought the led's were larger--the pictures are tricky. but its the most recommended for that sort of lighting, since the sidemarker needs to cast light to the plastic casing to diffuse the light and you dont get that w/ the 6 led i think...

I have 6LEDs for my sidemarkers. They're OK but I don't have a comparison with the 5LEDs to give judgement.

I use 4LEDs for my interior dome lights. Note that if you buy from autolumination, 4LEDs is the maximum size you can install for the dome lights. I think you can fit 6LEDs if you buy it from superbrightleds.

I have both 5 and 6LED's. If I get bored enough tonight I will see if I can take pictures of both installed and post them. Currently I have the 6 LED installed.

Pretty much the same look, except it's 6 LEDS.

I have the 5led's as well, they don't fill the whole reflector unless its completely dark out, but overall look good I guess, better than an incandescent.

I'm planning of getting the anzo side markers and was thinking of going with the piaa plasma ion bulbs (168), what do you guys think of this combo?
