I know that the size of the domelight is DE3175 (36mm).

I would like to get a red bulb for the domelight, but not have that pink tint. Anybody have any ideas on brands (piaa, raybrig, polarg) that would accomplish this?

Thank you

any of the bulbs you mentioned will probably be red and not pink, i''m guessing you want red cause you have a red car, those bulbs shouldn't be too expensive, trial and error

i actually went a really cheap way, i painted my dome light with a blue sharpe and it worked pretty well for a while but eventually wore off. i heard nail polish works too.

Okay, why would you want to do this. I actually use mine, when I need to find something in the back?? not being a jack-ass, just wondering why you would want to do it? :wink:

I would just like to have that red ambient light when I get in and out of the car. I always put my backpack and paperwork in the trunk. When people sit in the back, there's not enough space for their stuff anyways. I'm going to keep the map lights stock, in case I need to read something.

Oh yeah, I like red :D

don't use nail polish on the bulb....been there, done that...all it does it heats up and start to burn the nail polish...it's a god awful smell.

Thanks guys, but i really would rather buy the bulb. I would just like to know if there is a bulb that emits a red color rather than pink.
