Well, I have two dead license plate LEDs sitting here on my desk. They worked great...for about a week, until it rained, snowed and was just generally Michigan. Then, not so much. I am now back to the stock incandescent bulbs.

I'd love to see someone made decent weatherproof bulbs but these weren't them. :-(

This is what I bought. Apart from the license plate LEDs, I am completely happy and have had zero failures.

It says "Lifetime Warranty", have you tried to get some replacements?

One of the first things I got was led license plate bulbs from Auto Zone. Things have been through plenty of rain storms and snow and are still going strong.

Installed the Euro headlight switch and disabled the DRL. Also put in chrome switches.

I did the Speed Tuning USA flash kit today and the car does have more power and a better throttle response.
