LED licence plate lights buy

Hello new to the group. I was just wondering if anyone is interested in a group buy for the rear led licence plate lights. Thanks. Also any other lights that are not already LED's

I think the same "bulbs" will work in the puddle lights in the side mirrors.

Hi Cosimo,

You probably don't need to do a "group buy" for these, unless 60 cents U.S. per bulb is too expensive for you. I found a 10-pack of T10 20-SMD White LED bulbs for $5.99 at Amazon, and they have worked as good replacements for the license plate lamps, puddle lamps, and the rear cargo area lamp.

yeah they are very cheap bulbs even for the LED ones. All you have to do is find the proper bulb size (sylvania.com) and then do a search on ebay. there are tons.

Hey Jeff, I looked all over for these too, and it seems vleds is the only distributor selling these right now.

I bought 2 pairs intending to replace the puddle lights and license plate lights, but they were way too bright for the license plate, so I put one in the cargo light, and kept a spare in case one of the others went out.

I ended up getting Sylvania's OSRAM LEDs for the plate, and they are just the right amount of light.

Oh ok do you have a picture so that I can look at it. Are they too bright for the puddle and in the cargo?

It's 6000K so does it have like a blue colour to the light?

The flank bulbs are extremely bright! I don't know if you'd call them obscene, but they are awkwardly bright. The one in the cargo bay lights up my garage in the dark.

They are pure white, no blue in them at all.

I thought they only light up when the door is open?

Would I also get a picture of the cargo area light and the license plate light?

Thanks,
Jeff
