Nice... but too expensive – BMW 36mm 1W 100-Lumen 7000K 2-SMD LED Car White Light Bulb (DC 12V) Reviews

- Seems pretty nicely built. You have to take care of heatsink not making any short circuit. - Very bright. Bright is like a 5w incandescent or a bit more.
Biggest con: the price. An incandescent lightbulb for a car in this size I can get for u$s 0,15 here in my country, buying in large quantity (and u$s 0,50 buying just one in any shop). This is extremely expensive in comparison.
They don't seem to be built for car. Car's voltage is 13,8 volt maximum with engine running. And power consumption goes a little higher than rated when this lightbulbs are tested on 13,8 volt, instead of nominal 12v. I hope they still last enough.
I'll try to sell it to my clients, but I just hope I lasts long so they can see some advantage of getting this lightbulb instead of regular ones.
