Hi, Group,

I have a 97 S320 and would like to replace the interior map/reading lamps/overhead console bulbs from their original clear "white" lamps to an amber-like bulb.

I have ambient-type lighting in my home, and like the idea of having a softer, warmer interior light scheme for my S320.

By the way, I did replace the lower door edge bulb to a red bulb. Looks great, and makes the door opening more visible to oncoming traffic when parking along a street.

Always enjoy reading the posts to the group and learning more about our W140s!


Thanks,

Thanks, Peter. I'm looking to substitute the bullet bulbs (white) with amber bulbs.

Any advice, anyone?
