    Anyone change out the bulbs in the vanity mirrors to LEDs? If so what did you use? 2016 EL Plati

    Eager to hear this as well. My 05 had a nicer set up... My wife has complained twice about how dim the factory lights are now. We only picked the truck up from the dealer last Friday;)

    The lights on the right side vanity mirror in our 2014 would not go out, and left burn marks on the cover. Getting it replaced tomorrow. Meantime, we took the light bulbs out. I'm thinking L.E.D.'s would be the way to go to prevent more heat damage if the lights don't go out.

    Going with these, Ive got their amber front turn signals in my Ex now and love them. They make 6 and 9-SMD but ppl say those are way too bright. Thinking these 3-SMD will be perfect

    Yes a big difference it went from yellow to white. In that pack there were enough LEDs to do all of the internal lights including the Glove box and the vanity mirrors. There were even bulbs for the licence plate.

    I would think they would be the same for the 2010. ExpAndy, can you give me your old bulb number and I will compare ?
