I must have missed the memo on how brilliant it is to put LED globes in place of the standard ones.
Just saying, if you missed the memo / post get on it as it makes an awesome difference for very little cost.
I spent AUD 15 each from the local auto parts chain.

They are very good.

One word of warning whilst on the subject of LED lights, don't change your sidelights to led bulbs. I makes the bulb failure light stay on the dash and is very annoying.

Cant you add a resistor to cure that? Thought I read that somewhere maybe on ML. I don't like LEDs anyway, too LEDdy.......

You mean the side blinkers, near the wheel arch? Or the ones below the headlights?

What's the advantage - is it just brightness?

Hi Eb, the standard interior globes give a yellowish glow which emphasises the yellow in my avorio ( ivory ) interior.
The LED's have a white light which is much more to my preference and is much brighter.
Makes my interior look great.
