    Post Bulb List for LED Swaps

    I started this thread on the other board, and had forgotten to post it over here as well. Mods, if you want to sticky this list, I'd appreciate it.

    Given that bulb numbers are requested constantly, and the Sylvania list is (or was) unreliable for our cars as they listed some incorrect or proprietary numbers, finding out what bulb numbers you need is a bit painful and currently requires a lot of searching around (I know from experience). Therefore, I figured I'd make a central list with all the numbers I have tracked down, as well as whether or not they are confirmed to work. I included a zipped Excel spreadsheet that I made for this which might be easier to read.

    If anyone has numbers for any other bulbs I missed, or sees any mistakes in the list, let me know and I'll update the post.

    Format:
    [Bulb name]: [bulb number], [quantity needed (individual bulbs)], [Color (stock)], [Confirmed to work?]

    Starred (*) bulbs require a resistor (6 ohms on each bulb) to be installed in order to avoid hyperflash, brake release blinking, output degradation, and other unsavory side-effects.


    Exterior Bulbs:
    • Backup/Reverse: 1156, 2, White, Confirmed
    • Brake: 7443/7440, 2, Red, Confirmed
    • License plate/Tag: 194, 2, White, Confirmed
    • Sidemarkers (under headlight on front bumper cover): 194, 2, Amber, Confirmed
    • Side repeaters/fender turn signals (behind front wheels): 194, 2, Amber, Confirmed
    • Front turn signal: 1157, 2, Amber, Confirmed , *
    • Rear turn signal: 1156, 2, Amber, Confirmed , *
    • Foglight LEDs: 5202/9009, 2, White, Confirmed


    Interior Bulbs:
    • Dome lights: 194, 4(sunroof)/2?(no sunroof), White, Confirmed
    • Trunk (also Glovebox, Center console): 211, 1, White, Confirmed


    PLEASE BE AWARE THAT MANY SITES (SUCH AS V-LEDS) SELL MANY BULBS IN PAIRS! DOUBLE CHECK HOW MANY BULBS YOU ARE BUYING SO YOU DON'T ORDER MORE THAN YOU NEED!

    If you are going to add a glovebox light (or if your '08 G8 has it and you're going to swap it to LED), or a center console light, the same bulb type as the trunk light will work.

    I've now confirmed all bulbs in this list (except for fogs), as I've swapped all my bulbs for LEDs.

    I believe non-sunroof cars have 2 interior bulbs as they lack the map lights... If anyone that owns a car sans sunroof can confirm I'll update things.

    I will update this OP as needed.

    *Edit 9/2: Added fog bulbs, confirmed by 4GASEM.

    Sorry for late response. I went with V-LEDs for all my LEDs. No complaints. Their customer service is spectacular as well.

    With the LED lights for the turn signals and markers don't you need to use resisters or something so that they work properly? How exactly does that work because I definitely want to LED/HID the cars lights soon.

    Whatever the LED equivalent is for a 6814 bulb would be the replacement for the glovebox light. Just sayin'

    You only need resistors for the main turn signals, the ones in the corners (in the headlights and taillights). The sidemarker on the fender does not need a resistor, it can be swapped for LED without issue.

    The resistors are just installed with wire splices onto the proper wires on the harness and then stuck onto some metal part somewhere (I chose the frame rails in the hood, and the sheet metal next to the tail lights). You want to avoid sticking them to anything plastic because they get very hot and will melt plastic. As for which specific wires in the front harnesses, there's other threads that say which if you search for them. The ones in the rear are already separated and not in a harness so it's a no-brainer.

    I'm not sure what a 6814 bulb looks like, but as I listed a 211 LED (same one as the trunk light) will work. Maybe that's the equivalent.

    To clarify: I'm going by what would be plug & play. You could always (as other members have done) get yourself some LED strips and solder/splice them into the wires, but obviously that's not plug & play. A 211 type LED is a festoon bulb replacement and will fit in the stock connector.
