    Would you happen to know the size of the bulb for the dome light?

    The putcos are SMD LED soldered on to a board custom fit to the dome housing with the correct connectors to interface with the stock lighting socket. The "replacement" leds are just that, one bulb replaces one bulb. I thnk this route is going to be bright and I trust putco, not some off-shore website bs.

    these are amazing, where do I buy these and what is the warranty? Also, does it include door leds and license plate LEDs?

    I believe it is just dome lights, front and rear, total of four. The license plate leds I have are superbrightleds SMD 194's. I order them through my buddies shop. $80 for the putco kit. 1 year warranty. let me know.

    Re: Putco PURE LED Lighting Kit for CTS

    Have you had any of your other bulbs burn out from superbrightleds? I want 6 that fire downward (doors and license plates and 2 that are normal that point straight out from the wedge (floor), which would you suggest I buy from them, and do you think we need LED load resistors for our cars, I can't imagine wasting any more $ on LEDs. - Dom

    Sorry but I prefer a softer warmer light for my interior. LEDs just seem to harsh and cold especially with Cahsmere.

    Agreed, same interior. I just need to be able to see what's going on in the car, not perform surgery in the back seat.

    Cool Re: Putco PURE LED Lighting Kit for CTS

    OK, got them installed. They are not custom boards, but merely 194 wedge base bulbs with SMD LED's in them. BOY ARE THEY BRIGHT! I used the Putco kit for the four dome lights, and used superbrightleds.com 921-x12 LEDS for the under door lighting and the footwells. I am in love.

    Same functionality as the stock lighting, nothing added, only replaced.

    Re: Putco PURE LED Lighting Kit for CTS

    Pretty neat; a little too bright for my taste, though.

    For automotive interior applications, I think I actually prefer the warmth of traditional incandescent bulbs. LEDs to me are almost too pure white, so they remind me of a bathroom with flourescent lighting. (I've driven both a Dodge and Chrysler minivan in the past six months with their standard all-LED interior lights).

    Sweet that they can just replace the standard units, though.
