LED's, seats, questions, help!

Thinking about getting these:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/FORD-FOCUS-2...788645&vxp=mtr
and want to do heated seats. Where could I do the heated seats? Would it hurt the synthetic leather. The reason I like this leather is because it is designed and cut right from specs of your seats. It looks like it fits like a glove and as suppose to be there. I dont like the headrest but I guess I dont have to put those on.

Also, I cant get the 14.5V 42draft plate lights so now I dont know what to get. I was looking vleds site and I have a 5% off coupon. I know its not much but hey.

3 of these(plate and cargo):
http://www.v-leds.com/Interior-LED-B...-p9594396.html
1 of these(reverse):
http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED-B...-p9781683.html
1 of these(tail/brake/signal):
http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED-B...-p9596883.html
1 of these(sidemarker):
http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED-B...-p6640085.html
1 of these(fog):
http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED-B...-p9591143.html

What so you guys think about all those?
Can I turn the sidemarker into a signal as well?
I dont know what to get for the parking/front signal?
They suggested these for the map lights:
http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED-B...81034-1-2.html
I thought it was a 194.

they are that style bulb, and they illuminate red, instead of white.
i'll take some pictures of them tonight, if i didn't get them from vleds, i got them from superbrightleds.com.
both good places, so no worries.

You are thinking of the map lights.

Does it have a DOT symbol? Resistors? Is it possible to see some pictures in car etc? Video of signal? Sorry for inconvenience.

For your license plate, The V-LED states its forward voltage is up to 14.5V but some people on here have a "strobe" effect after some months.

As far as Interior, our lights are 194 wedge style.
http://www.v-leds.com/Interior-LED-B...-p8761053.html

Reverse is 921 which the link you provided is valid.

Brake/Service Light use 3157 which the link you provided is valid.

As for the fogs, I HIGHLY do not recommend LEDs. LEDs aren't ment for driving lights JUST yet. A lot of sites selling LED "bulbs" do not put adequate lumens for safe driving. If you want it for show/looks then by all means

What should I get for the plate lights. Would the one listed still work for the cargo?

I knew V-LED was wrong but I couldnt remember the size.
Thanks

I dont want looks, I just want a brighter, whiter, not blinding or showy fog and headlight bulbs.

Sidemarker:
http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED-B...-p6640085.html

Can I turn the sidemarker into a signal as well?
I dont know what to get for the parking/front signal?

What about resistors?
I want LEDS everywhere so am I missing any?
