Default Noob problems

So i've only had my 03 wrx wagon for a month now, & thought it would be a classier look to change out the interior dome light & map lights. The bulb guides told me the map lights were 168 bulb size.. Which is the same for my license light size, which is not true.... But I found that my interior map lights & dome light bulb size are the same. Any help..? Suggestions

Take the bulb out, and it will have numbers on it, telling you which one to get. What do you mean by "classier" look? A different color? Be careful if you get a higher wattage bulb, the wires are designed to only carry so many watts. If you blow the fuse, the bulb is too big.

Per Sylvania.

Aside from that, you didn't tell us much of anything. Be descriptive and we can help.

PS 168 and 194 are interchangeable.
