    Just guessing here... maybe the "30W" refers to it's incandescent equivalent. That's how they rate compact fluorescent / LED bulbs here in the USA.

    What's up with the scrubbed LED driver IC markings?
    What are they trying to hide?

    Sometimes it seems to relate to the maximum power of the LEDs used, but in this case each of the 6 LEDs is only rated for 1A not 1.5A, hence a total maximum about 20W.

    But a bulb that size isn't going to be able to cope with 20W or 30W.

    But few car bulbs here have accurate specs anyway.
