Does anybody have any thoughts on JDM ASTAR LED bulbs....like the 3014 SMD 194, or the 5730 6-SMD 194 bulbs??? I am looking for a more lumen bulb for my map lights and less output for the front dome and rear dome/map lights
The 5730 6 SMD will be quite bright . . way brighter than the 194 stock bulb. So for the map lights would be good.
IF you want LESS light for the Dome Lts, the a 5 SMD 5050 chip LED would be less light than the 5730.
You can also try a trick I've used and that is use a permanent felt tip marker of any color. . . black, blue, red, whatever if you wish, and use it on the top mounted SMD of the 194 LED to dim down the light output. That SMD will be the one facing downward when mounted in the dome lights.
