Licence Plate Lighting

I have been having issues with replacing the licence bulbs with LEDs over the last year or so. The replacement for W5W bulbs is said to be 194 but I have burnt out 3 or 4 LEDs in just over 1 year. While the normal incandescent bulb last. I have recently found xeon filled bulbs which I am now trying. They are not as bright as LEDs but no more yellowish incandescent light.

Hope this ones last longer.

Re: Licence Plate Lighting

Have you tried Corksport? I know you just want the license plate but I got the kit and my LEDs are holding up very very well. Maybe you can shoot them a call or email and see if they will sell just the sizes need for the license plate?

Re: Licence Plate Lighting

lol that is an idea, I will hold off and try these for a while see how they go, I have spent too much over the last year on shipping that I need to take a break lol.

Re: Licence Plate Lighting

superbrightleds have all worked fine for me; I have them all over the car for over a year now having even switched them from my old 3 to my new one and still going. I have heard from Noodles hat his sbleds have failed, but mine are ok.

Re: Licence Plate Lighting

I bought the corksport full LED light kit and it actually came with 3 extra bulbs, which I will hold onto in case I ever encounter the same problem you are having

not to mention the kit is $35, which is quite a bit less than what it would cost to buy all your bulbs separately

Re: Licence Plate Lighting

I got the CorkSport LED kit and have to say they're worth the money imo.
