Very bright alternative to your basic light bulb – 42mm 2W 6500K 126-Lumen 9-SMD LED White Light Bulb for Car (DC 12V) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
It is very bright, and you can see that especially when it's dark outside. Produces very "cold" light, like LED's usually, so it's quite different than the regular bulb.
Cons:
It stays illuminated very dimly even though the car's power is completely off and the doors are locked. Don't know why it does that, and frankly, don't even care. I'm not worried though about it draining the battery, because it surely doesn't consume almost any power in that condition.
Other:
Certainly produces a lot more light than my old bulb. Some people might not like the white "cold" light produced by LED's, but i like it more than the old glow bulb.
Bottomline:
I think that old glow bulbs cost double compared to this one, and only lasts one fifth of the lifetime. So if you don't mind the white light, get this! Or better yet, get several for your other cars or friends. I'm seriously thinking about to exchange all the bulbs in my car to LED ones.
