Will update the first post to include

"List of globes for shaley's BJ"

Shouldn't yours now be the same as the SP20 ones for the front headlights.
Dash and aircon would still be the same. And interior should also be the same as what's listed for sedan.

What have you changed on yours?

Glad it helped. What did you need the guide for?
What globes you change?
Just changing interior lights, including map (reading) lights and boot light.
Im considering getting some new LEDs for the rear taillights aswell.
Seems like it will be useful for future endeavours

.... Wouldn't really bother with LED's for the tail lights. Filaments are cheaper, do the same job. Actually better because they radiate the light.. Rather than being very directional like the LED.

Upside to LED is they last longer (if you don't get cheapies anyway)

But remember... LED blinkers = rapid flashing.

Ok cheers! I just saw Andy had them installed... may've been thinking of copying haha

Not sure about you but im not a fan of quick flashing... make you stand out, but not in a good way. Ill need to decide between clear or dark indicators though, as im currently running stock orange.

I may consider getting some HIDs though. If i find some spare cash and find a decent set (i understand 'cheapies' arent reliable).

Yeah andys ones are a little bright too lol
But I wouldn't bother with the LED's unless the globes in there blew and they need replacing. Then I might consider.

If you really wanna do LED blinkers then add a larger resistor in the flasher module. Will bring the flashing back to normal speed.

On your green car... Go with the clear ones (not the chrome... They are ugly)
You have no black on your car... Only green and silver (wheels, lights)
So go with the clear ones.

Yep, makes sense.

Yes thats what i was first thinking. Im not to sure what ill be doing with me badges though. Most people are going Black, but im not too sure that'll turn out great.
Ive been chatting to Ben Carney and he did a quick photoshop of the badges in Gold/Yellow. As you can expect it really stands out. Im 50/50 whether it's a good thing or not. Only thing is i want to spray my brake calipers and i thought matching colours might be cool... still lots of time to get ideas though.

I'm not a fan of coloured brake calipers... I like them black... Or black
I wouldn't paint your badges at all. Get the Familia instead of the 323astina one.
But leave them chrome. Gold would also look good.

Yes this is off-topic of globes BUT... As you may know Andy and Ben installed some front coilovers in my car on the weekend, since we took the rotors and calipers off, it was a good chance to spray. So i ended up choosing Red haha, you may not like it but i think it looks sweet!
I saw Andy has a Familia badge, so if its relatively cheap ill get one too

first post has been edited!

Just the list... Not the spreadsheets yet.

High beams ARE NOT HB3!!!!

The AUDM use a H1 globe for high beams.

So... SP20 high beam = H1

I don't know the vanity lights because I stopped the project being unsat with the color temp and brightness of the LEDs I purchased (too low luminosity, a little too blue). I don't think I would ever change the vanity lights anyway because incandescent lighting is softer and better for a woman's makeup...that is unless the LEDs got really good, (bright and 2700-3000K, sort of difficult for LEDs to do).

From factory they are white bulbs with the orange/red coulored rubber covers.
so essentially red lights i suppose.
the face of the aircon is a white surface. So any colour works well
