Looks like the 30 PCB festoon is discontinued. Bummer.

http://www.superbrightleds.com/more...er-led-rectangle-pcb-lamp-w-festoon-base/839/

5% off code RET71 is also no longer working.

As of right now their recommended bulbs are:
DOME: http://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/festoon/578-led-bulb-9-led-festoon/237/
MAP: http://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/festoon/de3175-led-bulb-4-led-festoon/231/

But the brighter EOC-member-approved bulbs are:
DOME: https://www.superbrightleds.com/mor...lbs/6451-led-bulb-6-smd-led-festoon/662/1146/
MAP: https://www.superbrightleds.com/mor...s/de3175-led-bulb-4-smd-led-festoon/238/1130/

It should be noted that the 6415 EOC-member-approved dome bulb is 4.19cm in length compared to the 4.4cm long bulb that SBLEDs recommends. Not sure if that 0.21cm makes a difference or not.

Just throwing my experience into the mix. I did a red/white up front with these bulbs from superlumination.
Cliff Notes:
*The white was functionally dimmer than the factory incandescent on the map light I purchased.
* The 44mm festoon fits really well, but there isn't any side to side room at all. 42mm would fit fine and function perfectly
assuming my 44mm festoons are actually 44mm (I didn't measure)



They are in my city so I figured I'd "buy local" (from a guy who buys overseas so who really cares - mostly I figured standard shipping would still be a day, and it was.) Their website is also endearingly terrible. (they are so dedicated to the <blink> tag that they are faking it with animated gifs a decade after browsers stopped supporting it all together. )

Anyway - The cast on these is delightfully wide, and I love the red. The white is actually dimmer than the original bulb, which would be disappointing if it weren't the map light. When I switched it on my heart sunk a bit. It felt like a bit of a down grade. Logically though, having the map light be dim works better if I'm on the road the wife needs to read something that isn't on a device. (printed directions) The red is great. For a while I was driving around with it on because it made me feel like a space pilot. Night vision is completely unaffected in city driving.


awkward selfie

In the back I used these: Not sure why I didn't get the ones everyone else liked. (I think in my head the 12 LEDs facing in 4 directions meant less directional cast) I have no regrets though. When my friends got into the car last night they said something to the tune of "holy $#!% that's bright, are we in a spaceship?!"



Maybe should have gotten the warm white just for personal preference. Glad it was on option. I bought the 44mm and they fit perfectly. I think that the 42s would fit perfectly as well (mentioned in the previous post) as there wasn't any room at all to go longer, but a 2mm shorter wouldn't make a difference.

Hmm - That is an odd problem. They are being hosted by the Element Owners Club. Perhaps you have a firewall up?

It seems like the 4210-xHP6 lights in both cool and warm white have been discontinued.

Com3, do you have product numbers of the COB lights you bought?

I just got these DE3175 a couple of weeks ago. Warm white but a lot brighter than stock.

Since I have an 06 EX, some of my bulbs are also 578 (cap end and not conical end), I used these. I had to modify the ends by wrapping metal to build up the diameter of the ends.
