First of welcome to the forum. And I agree I really like the look so much better than the halogens. Now you gotta get some more for the interior.

Just got my LEDs in today. Came with a free company decal and a 10% off next purchase code like always:) small ones have 5 white SMD LEDs larger ones have 9 white SMD LEDs. Going to replace the license plate bulbs, interior dome, and trunk bulb.

The 3 installs below are to show you what type of LEDs are best fitted per application. And to make install go with ease.

2 Philips head screws per light housing.

Pulls right out but the electric lines will be very snug. just pull enough to get a grip on the bulb holder.

Just pull the bulb out and insert the replacement. Have a pair of needle nose pliers near by just incase it's stubborn.

Use your flathead screwdriver and stick it in the slot and pop out the one side and the assembly will pull out with ease. Just press the tab to release the assembly from electric lines.

Replace bulb and reverse process.

Just curious. Why do you want brighter license plate lights? I ask because many people go to lengths trying to obscure the plate.

And, did you do the map lights also?

Well I did them because they are a 6000k light color like me 6000k hid headlights. So they match the headlights and I think it looks cool.

Hey which LEDs did you get for the interior dome and trunk? I went to diode dynamics website and the only thing they have listed for the cruze are HID conversion for the headlights.
