I use PIAA Ion-Yellow 194 wedges for my parking lights. It gives it a kind of "foglight" look.

I'd like to see more pics as well. I am intrigued by this idea as I am already going with the PIAA yellows in the fog lights.

For my parking lights, I also used bulbs from Autolumination.com. They have the most ghetto website you will ever see, but they have good customer service and prompt shipping.

http://autolumination.com/194.htm

Check out the Supernova bulbs. They are not only their widest and brightest single bulb LED, but they also have an "aluminum heat sink keeps them cool in hot & smaller housings to avoid heat related failure". They look better than any that I've tried, in that they are brighter, and their wide 160 projection angle causes them to light up the reflector better than regular LEDS. The four bulb LEDs, for example, give off a fraction as much light, in only a 45 cone. I've only had mine in for a couple of months, so I can't offer any comment on their longevity.

This page has all the specs: http://autolumination.com/specifications_194.html

For applications other than in the headlights, check out the Super Wide Angle Superstar bulbs. They are a similar design, are about as bright, and they have the same projection angle. They only lack the heat sink, and they are a bit cheaper.

You have to notch the heatsink to get them to fit.Been there and done that.The output is phenominal

Well I ended up going to autolumination website... I ordered regular superwhite xenons for my parking lights (I like the way they looked here: http://forum.mazda6club.com/index.php?showtopic=71119, and I ended up ordering matrix superwhite for my bumper lights. I'll post some pics along with 6000ks, as soon as my ballast comes.

Right.. forgot to mention that.. had to file a couple of flats on the sides of the aluminum head sink to get them to fit. It was easy and well worth it. They're the brightest single LEDs I've seen, and as I said before, their wide angle of projection lights up the reflector nicely.

Here is a bigger version. I've included a ~45 degree one as well. Exposure on camera was set low so the lights do not overpower the picture. If you'd like a reference point for the color of the regular halogen wedges, look at the fogs; they are stock.

Hmmm.. I kind of like that look. Dang.. just as I find the best LED option, I have to consider yet another choice. Oh well.. it's good to have options.
