Any reason not to run these as parking lights
(standard for PL is 194)

921 fits, is brighter-8w vs. 5w

I don't see any down side.......

The base sizes will generally be interchangable. But I see two potential downsides here:
1) the 921 may not fit through the hole into the lamps
2) unless we are talking LED repalcement bulbs, the extra heat may be too much for the little reflector that sits over the bulb

1. The 921 fits through the hole(tried it already)
2. yea I thought about that, may have to investigate further( or perhaps go with some retro-solutions LEDs)

When it comes to 921 LED bulbs they typically are more forward firing than anything, the standard 194 wedge for LED conversion may prove more applicable on the 06 lamps.
