COB License plate LEDs

So a buddy of mine is a bit of an LED whore and he ordered up a "new" style of LED. They're called COB LEDs. Both of us haven't seen them before so we're figuring they're one of the newest styles out.

So as you can see I have a 42 draft designs 14.5v license plate LED and two new COB LEDs around it. The green panel on the COB is what produces the light...all of it. And I'm thinking they should last a lot longer than the standard 12v license plate LEDs because of that huge heat sink on the back of them. Anyway I ramble on. Here's what they look like on the car.

I like them but I just installed them so I'll probably like them until I get pulled over for "underglow". They're like twice as bright as my 42 draft designs.

Couldn't you just look for the same design on Ebay? I've seen these before, I didn't think they would be that bright but boy oh boy I must be wrong lol
