    I like the blue-white in the accent lights in the grill of my car that helps signs "pop" at night while not being enough to really affect oncoming traffic. Just the wavelength addition to the regular headlights helps a lot at night to read signs. I don't mind it for the dome/map lights either. Dash lights, NO.

    Yeah to be honest guys I got all the bulbs installed and I don't like it. Gadget said it right it's too..modern. I mean I like these same led dome lights in my 2000 jeep grand cherokee but in this car it just doesn't seem right so yeah gonna swap em back.

    If it's just the color of the light bugging you, 3500K color (warm white) will look like the old bulbs.

    Yes 3,500 to 4K is sometimes very nice. Not ultra blue/white but less yellow than the original incandescent. Do you know the frequency of the replacement bulbs you bought?

    I only know they were super white color. They only costed me $10 on ebay so not a whole loss, maybe you guys can recommend me some led bulbs that look more like the incandescent? Or I just look for 3500 to 4k? I always shopped for led bulbs by the color I want them to be.

    Most anything from www.superbrightleds.com that says warm white will be in that color range. Cool white will be 5000k or higher and typically 7500k-9500k.
