You can fit a T5 Neowedge style bulb in there and wollow out that hole in your console a bit to let out more light. I ordered mine from ebay for less than 2 bucks for 2 bulbs so now I even have a backup. I went with the normal brightness bulb and it has plenty of light when it is dark out, I am glad I didn't get a super bright version.
Taking the console down is only like 5 screws under each of the pockets and a good tug and it will come down. The bulb just twists in and locks into place, make sure you plug it up and test the light in the console though because those neo wedge bulbs only work one way.
