Bonjour,

I installed today my new W5W5 or 194 or 168...:roll: ;) city light. I replace the stock one by LED super white (no blue) . I already have HID so the city light lock like verry old yellow bulb.

1-the first pic ic stock (left) vs LED
2- second pic is stock HID with LED
3-Third is Stock HID with stock W5W

What do you think?

I think LED light output is more focused and less "illuminating" than standard bulbs. In the case of the city lights and where they are in the housing, I used the inverted LED type bulbs which emit light out the sides in which it can reflect more of the housing. I can't really tell what type of LED that Chuck is using.

Exact, this LED a use is focus to a more Narrow projection. The stock bulb is more wide so it reflect more inside the ''mirror housing''. But since my HID are always on when my car is running I do not need the light flux of city light but just a matching color with the HID.

no, by opening the hood, you'll have to remove un rubber cap on back of the casing of light. . You also have to remove (for right side) de battery cover and a small fuse box + the top on the windshield fluid thank...all of that in less than 2 minutes.Just lock in your Saab manuel, they show you how. The acces is thight:( so you have remove the bulb by pulling the power wire of them...Now i'm expert on that (do a few test with several bulb style) but the first time I hurt and scratch my hand + finger a lot...;) good luck!

Chuck, replacing the city light looks to be a huge improvement.... your car looks a lot better with the new lights. What brand city lights did you use? Philips, PIIA ect...
