Lighting question....

I have a 2012 mustang v6 base, I would like to know what type of bulbs I need for the dome lighting, I feel like they are not bright at all ad I would like brighter ones. Also does anyone know the type of bulbs I need for the license plate? I would like to get hids.

Hey Cyclon37

I like your rear panel that gets rid of the ugly to large fake gas cap.


******************ME TOO************************

Anyway, How hard is it to change the backup bulbs? They are a must have.

Yep, the decklid is much better. And the bulbs are easy. Shouldn't take more then 30min. Just gotta remove that plastic trunk piece behind the tails, unscrew the screws that hold the lights and viola, just swap the bulbs. It looks much cleaner, and cheap
