New Parking bulbs

I was just in my garage and found this old box of mini bulbs. the box was falling apart its so old, but there were some brand new bulbs in there. yellow/orange color coating on them. so i plugged one to my plate light quick to see if it fit/lit (berfore moving my splash guard) worked good so i changed my parking bulbs with them, its no big deal but i think it looks pretty sick. could barley see the "white" ones i put in just a few weeks ago anyway, especially next to HID's it barley looked like they were there. these ones stand out and match with the corner bulb. heres a pic. what do you guys think?

194 and 168 are the exact same bulb type. For some reason or another, there are like 15 different names for this same type of bulb lol.


Looks amazing by the way! I might go this route rather than amber parking light LEDs. Nice work!

Lol true. i have seen a few different numbers for the same bulb too, i think depending on the brand. But if you go to the auto store and have it looked up it comes up 168. as the standard replacement for the car.. Thanks for the feedback.

Re: New Parking bulbs

looks good. it has several names depending on the brightness and lifespan. the 194 lasts forever several thousand hours, the w5w only lasts a few hundred hours. imo, the stock 168 is the brightest i would go for our front park lights. the w5w is just too bright and causes more glare than the headlights at night.

194 = 2 candlepower (25 lumen)
168 = 3 candlepower (37 lumen)
w5w = 4 candlepower (50 lumen)
raybrig w5w = 4.5-5 candlepower (55-60 lumen)

Thanks. Oh interesting, the 194 in this color probably just looks brighter than the 168 in white because it stands out more. But deff not glaring.
