    changed out my rearview mirror lights in my '02 WS6 to LEDs, along with the dome light. The map ligh bulbs were 194s, the dome bulb was a festoon-style. greatly improved the lighting inside.

    I actually had to take a small pair of needle-nosed pliers and gently pull the old lights out, as they are kind of in at an angle. You can do this with the rear view mirror still attached, or take it down for easier access.

    Where did you order the bulbs? If they plug in like the old lights I'll order them today, I was only holding off because I thought I'd have to solder the dome light

    no soldering, i ordered plug & play lights from superbrightleds.com just make sure what bulbs they are, because I think the camaro bulbs might be different. Also, on that site, they have a bulb reference page so you can make sure what you are needing.

    here is a pic of what mine looked like after swapping them out, not the best quality, but you should be able to tell the difference in how much brighter they are
