Question for SVT owners with aftermarket dome/map light

Im thinking about replacing the dome and map light with some white LED lights, is this really worth it or are the stock lights just as bright?

The SVT uses a special light in the gauge so you cant change it to LEDs.

This should be in the Interior Mods & Chat section. So I'll move it there.
