Should be the same. I really couldn't see Honda going through the trouble of making them different just for Si's. Either way I will soon find out cuz I ordered the maplights for my Si in red. Thought I'd give it a try. Always easy to change back if they look to ricey.

I grabbed a set of blues and whites. I actually don't care for the whites. At least against my ivory interior. They aren't a warm light, they definitely cast a very sterile - somewhat dim - bluish hue. I think I prefer the oem bulbs against those.

However, the blues are insane. They are damn bright, definitely flashier. Those are pretty cool, if you like a very intense blue atmosphere in your cabin.

If you put the original bulbs back in, does it work?

Is the switch on?

Very good info. Thanks all!

Can someone confirm the part number for each of the following:

MAP Light = 3022-x9 LED Festoon bulb
Dome Light (ceiling) = Same as above?
Trunk Light = ???


Also, should I get the White LED for MAP light or Blue? Is it hard to read a MAP if it is blue?

Thanks for your help,
Derrick

I'm having the same problem with one of my bulbs. If I hit it it work for another second, but goes out again. It is reading a voltage across the bulb, so I'm thinking bad bulb...

Do they clip in the same way as the other bulbs, have you measured them to ensure they are the same size.

They need to be fully inserted into the clips, which is a trick because of the size of the square block.

What are the sizes for the lights that light up the rear license plate? Can I change those to leds as well? And if that's the case can I make them blue or do they have to be white? (laws?)

Unfortunately they have to be white by law. I'm pretty sure this law applies to all states and provinces.
