Vanity Lamp

I got the bulb out of the vanity/visor lamp in my 2003 325 and i am not really sure what size bulb to get or what i could use. the festoon bulb says 12 volts 10 watts and k5618(which is the number i believe). if i can i would want an LED one or something like that.

You can get an interior led kit (14bulbs on coupe) from khoalty for every light even glovebox and trunk for 35$. They all match color nicely, none of that blueish white, I'd just opt in for the18led Domelight option. I always get compliments.

But to answer your question. If your just interested in one, I would measure your bulb length in mm. And see which one of these would fit best

They're the same price I'd go for 18. The plug in play, 1 small bulb, is only 3 dollars cheaper so much better to go 18The 18 and 12 version will only require an extra 5 minutes of your time.
