You sure? There are 4 total "map" lights in the front overhead console. I thought 2 were just tinted blue and 2 were yellowish halogens. I can't figure out how to get to the 2 yellowish halogens.

EDIT: I just went out and looked again...in the front overhead console there are 2 LEDs and 2 blue tinted halogens, which I figured out how to get to. Does anyone know which LED bulb interchanges with the blue tinted lights. They looks really yellow when compared to all the other LEDs I swapped out in the interior. I could not find these bulbs referenced on the LED replacement thread I assume they are 194s, but would like to verify before ordering.

Check out the following LED thread. You can remove those bulbs and install LED to match but it requires some soldering.
