k, so i'm gettin a guage pod, and was told the 194 bulbs are the bulbs i need, so since i have nothing to do, and no pod or guages yet, i go to check out the bulbs....and below we have the two choices ( i got red to match the dash lights, since the guages will have a silver face too :thumbsup: )

the left one ( lighting technologies ) was $3.76 for 2 packages at auto zone. and is a much deeper red bulb.

the right one ( ge ) was $6 at wal-fart... and was a lighter color... ( i got this one first )

so, since my parking lights are already white, i realize, i can test the bulbs in the parking light spots.....

results below on real color...

as you can notice....the ge bulb ( right ) is more orange, and is almost a hint of pink when lookin at it.....

on the left ( lighting tech ) is more of a red ( looks almost pink, but isn't. )

NOTE: i put them in the housings just because i couldn't get a good shot of them, and once they were in, they contrasted a lot differently....

the only way i could compare the two bulbs was to do it with the low beams on, so that they got the same amount of light ( stupid smart digi cams )


this one is lighting tech..

and finally, this is the ge......

as you can see, anyone who is doing what i am, wants the lighting tech bulbs, unless you want to pay more and then have to buy the little bulb covers from summit :(

hopefully, i just saved a few people some spare change. :wavey: :thumbsup:
