I ordered interior lights from superbrightleds.com and paid a fair amount more than what you see on ebay. 3 of the 4 lights i bought from them burnt out within the first week.

Today I installed leds i bought on ebay which I got 10 lights for $10. We will see how long they last but for $1 per light, compared to $5 or $6 per light I dont care much if they dont last forever. Just hope they last much longer than the superbrightleds I bought.

Most people here get their interior and license plate lights from @Max Power. I've even gotten some HIDs for my wife's TL from him and he gives org members discounts.

I just finished a full conversion from ijdmtoy.com. Paid a fair amount, but I'm 100% impressed so far.

Get the lights from Max powers website, the white max you see in the pics, is mine. I LOVE these lights. Super bright and have given me absolutely 0 problems and I've had them in probably around a year.

As for parts, gotta be specific. What parts are you looking for?

You can even try ebay, lol.

I bought my license plate bulbs from MaxPower. lasted me a while, but one went out. I asked for replacement. he sent it twice. But I never got them. Ask me what happened? I don't know.

I bought my interior leds from ebay. Its the 5050 SMD. Lord, is it bright. You get into my car and turn them on, If you don't get offended by the lights, then you have eye problems.

I also bought license plate bulbs from ebay. Same 5050 SMD. They are very white and really look stock. I bought an extra set and have it in my first aid kit in my trunk, just in case these ones blow off because of their very low cost at which I bought them.

So, its up to you. I like how guys always give you soooo much options, someone can get lost and don't know what to choose. But there you go. make your choice.
