Those look nice in terms of color and brightness but expensive. I might just order some from DDM Tuning.

I didn't order anything yet. Are the stock bulb sizes 36mm or 39mm?

Ordered the 36mm. Only took 2 and a half weeks to get here. Ordered the ones with 2 LEDs and ones with 4. I like the ones with two LEDs better, not as bright.

Which ones did you get? the ones from DDM? 36mm? Do you have any pics of them so I can judge brightness?

I got the 36mm 2 LED ones from DDM Tuning. It took a while for them to arrive! I'd take pictures but I have them out because they'd interfere with my angel eyes, because of the way I wired the angel eyes.

I got the 39mm 3 LED bulbs from DDM. They fit almost perfectly, needed slight bending of the contacts but other than that they are a nice white and aren't too bright. I did notice however that they still draw some power after all the lights are off and shine faintly for a few minutes before they shut off. I'll get some pictures tomorrow.
