Do you think these will fit a 2017 Civic Hatch EX as well?

Not a bad price I just hope they will last long enough since I have heard horror stories about eBay bought bulbs going downhill a short period of time after buying and installing them. Anyone buying from someone locally? a shop? lighting expert, etc?

I assume a change in body styles won't affect the interior lights so it should work for the hatchback too. Would cost too much for Honda to come out with new lights for every Civic model in the 10th Gen.

Instead of going the "kit" route, I selected my interior LED bulbs individually.

For the trunk and dome light, I purchased warm 12-SMD 5050 T10 arrays which are shaped like a pong pong paddle. They *just* fit the space in the fixture, and direct light exactly as needed from one side of the paddle only. The 12V lead polarity &illumination direction combination worked out correctly in both places.

Putting radially emitting bulbs in these spots does not make sense to me, because a significant amount of light would be directed toward the dark side of the opening where there is no reflector.

For the map/spot lights, I purchased warm 6-SMD Samsung 5630, where 2 emitters on the end and 4 are around the side. These are more powerful LED's than those in the the 5-SMD versions which have been around for a while and were used by the original poster in this thread. I have both types, and compared them side-by-side. These Samsung emitters are magnitudes brighter.

I really do enjoy the warm color from the LED's, which emulate incandescent bulbs, instead of the "harsh" cool white.

These items were found on Ebay, and spent only a few dollars total.

Sylvania (on the website) says these will work for the trunk, anyone know if this T10 168 bulb will fit the dome and map lights?

A goal without a plan is just a wish.
