Look for T10 LED on eBay or amazon.com
Other non LED option are the PIAA T10/wedge 168 extreme white.

I have changed all my bulbs inside to LED. Every single one even trunk with the same LED T10.

I used these ones for the dome lights in front and rear. No error whatsoever on dash.

I used these ones for the trunk, foot, doors. No error whatsoever on dash..
http://www.ebay.com/itm/300444920100...ht_3714wt_1057

I ordered extra bulb housing with its connector from a local VW dealer to install an extra light on the trunk on the driver side of the trunk as it is from the factory on the passenger side so I will have an extra light with LED bulb on the trunk because I think we need more light on that area of the car.

On the outside I have changed all bulbs to PIAA intensive white. (All bought at amazon.com)

Low, high (H7), fog (H8) changed for PIAA intensive white.
DRL (T20) changed for PIAA intensive white. Looks like LED
Yellow parking/turning bulb changed to PIAA intensive white (T20)... Looks like LED love it !
Rear License plate changed to PIAA T10/wedge 168 extreme white. looks like LED too.

I did not used LED on rear plate due to having error light on dashboard and with the PIAA bulbs is look like LED with no error in dashboard.
I tried many LED on rear plate but have error on dashboard so I decided to go for the PIAA since it's giving me same look of the LED.

Also on headlights I'm not longer have the ugly yellow lights on middle of the front of the car. Now it looks like LED very white and when using the turning lights the white lights flash.. Also when I used the euro switch to turn headlights and just have fog lights running with parking lights,it looks great in front because fog and white parking lights looks alike so the only yellow lights in front the car are the one in the corner of each headlights (parking lights)..
I spent so far $200 in all of them.
If you guys wish I can provide link from amazon to the PIAA bulbs that I bought..

Other mod done so far are:

Euro switch VW OEM
VW OEM B6 door sill
VW OEM VW sport pedal
VW 18 Bristol VW OEM wheels w/tire as full size spare.
VW OEM bag holders (2)
DVD in motion on the RNS-510
Fog lights stays on with high beam
Auto Rain windows/ sun roof closure
Auto rain wipers activated

What to see how my passat looks like it.. Send me PM with your email or cellphone so I can text them or email them..
Looking forward to hear your thoughts..

You will need 2 types of LED. One type for the dome and doors because they illuminate strait on a 90 degrees angle and for the foot, trunk, globe compartment you need a different angle of illumination like the one showm on eBay link. Any question let me know.

You need these for the dome and doors a total of 9 of these plus spare from amazon.com

For the trunk, globe corpatment, and foot you will need 4 of these plus spare from eBay.

I put a LED in the trunk and it's brighter but still not enough light. I like your idea of the extra light back there. What is the part numbers for trunk light and connector? I think the main problem with trunk light is it so low if you put any thing in trunk it blocks the light. We need elights mounted somewhere higher back there. I used some LED panel lights to do my plate lights and have some extras I may see if I can use those some how. You should check out my thread Home Brew LED plate lights. If you can change all these other bulbs you could do that install too. I haven't got any bulb outs form them.

As far as the LEDs in the cab did you do the vanity lights? I haven't done those in mine yet and was wondering the size. I still need to do my glove box also I had one bad LED so I couldn't do that one. It is the same type of housing as the trunk and footwell lights. Don't forget to do your bulbs in the bottom of the doors the LEDs you used for the map lights look like they would fit nicely there.

The part numbers is on the housing.. You will need a magnifier to read it but I did just take it to the dealer and they ordered me one. You are right about the need of light and blocking the light..if it does not improve with the one in the driver side I will install one on top someplace.
Also yes, I have changed all inside the car like vanity/dome (5), globe compartment (1), doors (4), footwell (2), trunk (1) but soon will be (2).
