Overhead Center Console Lightbulb Replacement

I got the little thing off and got the bulbs out. So I went into Discount Auto Parts expecting to be there for 5 minutes while I found the bulbs I needed. To my suprise I found that they dont even sell the T579 bulbs in the store or in the catalog. I talk with the guy and he takes a look then he looked at the store bulbs and he recommends me the 912 bulb because it is the same polarity and setup inside the bulb. They didnt have the 912 bulb in that store but they had it in a different store much further away.

I was wondering if anyone had to replace the bulbs in that light and actually found the T579 or if they had to resort to the 912. It would be awesome if I could get a quick reply to this.

Well I put in 921 bulbs and they seem to work well enough for me. It is a bit larger of a bulb though.
