I never really seens pics showing what the 3mm LED's can do so for those that have used the 3mm's how do they compare in glow to the larger LED's?

same for me...i had some 5mm whites and 3mm whites to do a few interior things in my car and id say the glow was the same, the only thing that changes is the viewing angle i believe....

I take it the 5mm LED's had a broader beam of glow.

yeah, but as always it can be broadened on the 3mm by shaving the top...everything on the inside is the same, only the clear casing is a different size...

The way the Camaro console is made it would be easier for me to squeeze a small LED into the cup holder.
