    got these yesterday, best 194 led bulbs i've ever owned, around 400 lumens, clean, clear cut, matches the stock leds, super bright :)

    highly recommended, will be posting pics of it from my car soon, after the weekend, as my car is currently is the shop getting a body kit installed.

    they cost around $20 usd for a pair

    you can get them through jdmtoy or ebay

    So they're directional rather than 360 deg.

    I'm definitely interested in pics. So far, I haven't found a LED bulb that's an acceptable match to the LED headlights. All the ones I've tried are either too blue or too white (although I'm rather critical in this area).

    Those are LED headlights? They look rather blue compared to mine.

    yes my led headlights are factory stock, and it matches the led parking bulbs that i got, perfect match. Looks more whitish in real life than bluish, maybe bluish due to my camera.

    How is the heat from those bulbs? Keep an eye on the headlight lens for discoloration.

    Has anyone found suitable LED turn signal bulbs?

    it's pretty cool, i've been monitoring it, those bulbs are awesome.

    the front 2 the yellow side markers, are there bulbs inside that ?

    the stock led turn signal bulbs are pretty bright already, however i noticed the valenti tailights leds are super bright !!!!!!

    I like the look of these bulbs so much I went a little crazy with them.
    Terrible for lighting the road, but they look neat.

    I really want to get LED lamps for my car but I want them to match the headlights i.e. ~4300k temperature. All the ones i can find are 6000k or more. I guess what i really want is a kit that includes all interior and exterior LED replacement lamps that is 4300k. I have been looking for hours and can't find anything.

    Does anyone know if they make them and point me in the right direction?

    The white balance is not set to capture the true color of the LEDs. If you have a DSLR, micro 4/3 or high end P&S like the G1X or G12 that shoots raw, you can set manually adjust the white balance afterward to best reflect the true color of the LED lights.... just sayin.

    There's no such thing as stock LED turn signal on the Prius. Even on the stock LED tail lights, the reverse and turn signals are still halogens (making them half-LED).

    Thanks for the recommendation OP-
    Just replaced my parking light OEM bulbs yesterday. The LED's match the LED headlight color perfectly. Toyota should do this from the factory on the Fives....

    Your profile reads 2012 Five. Doesn't the 2012 Five already have LED parking lights or does the factory color not match LED headlights?

    Nope, even the Five has standard incandescent bulbs for parking lights :(.
    Just so we're all on the same page- the front parking lights have the orange lens and are on the sides (not the front of) the integrated main headlight cluster.
    The front directional signals (grouped with the LED DRL's) are also incandescent bulbs IIRC.
