Given i have loads of 501 leds lying around from my other cars i thought i would fit some to the front of the civic, however they dont fit. Well they fit but you cant get the plastic cover back on as the bulbs seem too wide to fit through the hole. And if you take the silver semi reflective part out the interior light sucks.

Does anybody have a link to some that will fit and look better than the standard bulbs ? The ones i have tried so far are the single 1w LED ones, and the 5x 5050smd ones.

Yeah they do fit fella.
Think how i did it was to put it on at an angle and get 1 bulb in one side and then manover the plastic onto the other one.

Bit of advice, one of mine kept going off (dodgy contacts) so turned them both on while i was fitting so knew they were working, instead of having to keep taking the plastic off.

Car looks awesome with a led interior lights. Really crisp and modern with front and back.

Gonna have to find out how to remove the front seats. No way in hell can i get these bulbs out, can hardly see them. One thing I hate about this car is if you drop something down the aide side between the center console you can't get it out.

Done and done. Removed the front seat and found offending bulbs, they were stuck down the rail. I know for next time to just remove 4 bolts if i drop anything down the side.
