I decided to swap out some of my incandescent lights on the Fusion for LEDs.  I have swapped the license plate bulbs, reverse lights... and tried to do the trunk light.

 

Got these for the license plate:  http://www.amazon.co...rds=w5w led jdm

 

They're very bright and have the color temperature I was looking for (around 6k).  Satisfied.  May try these for the trunk light.

 

Got these for the reverse lights:  http://www.amazon.co...eywords=jdm 921

 

These are incredible.  Mega bright (to the point where it starts messing with the auto-dimming mirror).  Satisfied.

 

As for the trunk light... I decided to go with the brightest one the company offered, these:  http://www.amazon.co...eywords=w5w led

 

Unfortunately, this caused my interior lighting fuse to blow.  I tried both bulbs, both blew the fuse within 3 seconds.  Not satisfied.  I believe the problem is the Canbus error corrector putting more than a 5w load on the system, causing the fuse to blow.

 

On the bright side (HAH!), I found that the trim panel that is under the steering wheel pops out and there's a nice hole in front of the fuse panel to reach through.  I tried the headstanding thing... and I'm not a small guy, so that flew for maybe 5 minutes before I got frustrated (and a headache).  :)
