Best LED lights ?

I have always loved the led look to any car, i wanted to start with the plate light and move all the way around and change all the lights. Since i have a plate light out i think its logical to start there, where is the best place that i can get long lasting, good looking LED lights ?! Thanks

oznium.com or superbrightleds.com
oznium has AMAZING customer support, got replacement products shipped next day saturday delivery for free, and they didn't need the broken back. great guys to work with. superbrightleds is a little cheaper though, and has all the bulbs I assume you are looking for. i'd say superbrightleds is best for bulbs, and oznium I go to for anything else.

All of the Led's that I've put in my Focus are from Superbrightleds.com , brake lights and license plate lights .

I get all of mine from Vleds.com, I like their stuff the best. They might cost a little more, but I never had a problem with their stuff and they have great service. Actually It looks like they've been getting more competitive prices since I purchased, but I always waited for coupon codes and sales.

The only ones that aren't from them are the plate bulbs from 42 draft designs, they had an awesome black friday sale on those. A lot of people here use these for the plates because they're cheap and they last.

I ordered some from vled but the tail light bulbs didn't work because they didn't have resistors built in so my lights had the flash issue

No led tail bulbs have load resistors built in, I have their platinum tails and I ordered load resistors with them and they work.

Their new-new Triton bulbs do have load resistors I believe, but they cost $$$.

6 ohm 50w load resistors for each LED blinker bulb.

Everything I have gotten from Super Bright has been shit and only lasted for a couple months. Their warranty isn't even worth it when you have to cover shipping both ways. Everything I have now is from DDM.
