Ideal for dome light – T10 0.6W 60-70LM 4-LED 5050 SMD LED Car Turning Signal Light Bulbs (12V/Pair) Reviews

Pros:
Way brighter than the 1W T10 PowerLED bulbs with the aluminum round heatsink you see popping up everywhere, inluding here at DX: SKU 35621 a.o. Has two diodes and two-sided connectors with pass-through holes, so it can be plugged in any way you like.
Cons:
Too bad the light is ony directed to one side.
Other:
If that's not what you need, you can Dremel off the part of the PCB that slides into the connector, just next to the pass-through holes. Then, solder two wires from that part to the small pass-through holes. Superglue the connector to the rear of the PCB in a T-shape fashion. Cumbersome, but at least I got a cheap, low-power, ultrabright reading/dome light for any VW. It will remain a pain to install from the front though, since it's become too wide for rear assembly like an original bulb.
Bottomline:
If you need a small trunk light, a sidelight (parking light) in your front reflectors, a dome light, or anything that has a W5W fitting and needs its light to be cast sideways, this is your ticket.
