Nice white light – BA9S 1.2W 70-Lumen 6500K 5-SMD LED Car White Light Bulbs (Pair/DC 12V) Reviews

Pros:
Nice white light. As bright as 5W incandescent bulb but with different color temperature. Color matches well with my LED DRL (daytime running lights).
Cons:
It is a bit thicker than equivalent incandescent bulb. Thickness was a bit problem as I couldn't get it into headlight dome of VW Golf mk2 but after a bit of dremeling everything was fine.
Glue holding leds and PBC to BA9S base is a bit bad. I accidentally managed to remove the PCB from metal base but it was easily fixed with a bit of Araldite.
Other:
Leds itself don't get warm but I'm a bit worried about PBC and leds getting warmed by 55W headlights as they are physically in same space. Time will tell how these hold up.
Bottomline:
Very cheap and good LED lights. One such a bulb costs easily 9.99eur locally.
