1979-1993 & 94 Conv
I've been using Sylvania ZEVO LED lamps on my 9-5 Aero Wagon for about a year. I have them as taillights, brake lights, rear fog (evil grin...), license plate, and "city" lights (small lights in the headlamp housings).
Easily the brightest thing on the road. the taillights on this 9-5 are brighter than the brake lights on my 9-5 sedan with incandescents. When I hit the brakes, everyone notices.
For brake & taillights, get the ones that emit a red light. This puts all your lumens in the red area of the spectrum, and nothing will be lost in the red filtering of the taillight lenses.
The 9-5 uses wedge base lights for the license plate & city lights. These are polarized, so if you get them, test & reverse the bulb in the socket if it doesn't light.
Fortunately, the 900 doesn't have a computer telling you your lights failed because they use less current. A bit annoying on the 9-5...
