Hmm. That would be a lot of light. But I'm one talk. The 08-11s have a t10 socket for all interior lights so I bought a 24 LED panel with a universal socket plug.

I am not sure of the point for a heat sink though, since one of the selling points for any led or smd bulb is low heat, resulting in longer life. The only ones I found on ebay are 31mm, unless you buy from Hong Kong, then they have some 39 mm ones. I know the 00-04 uses 36-39 mm.

Low wattage LEDs produce little to know heat. However, high power/ multiple LED panels produced a decent amount of heat. Oddly enough also when you run an LED for an extended amount of time it produces a noticeable amount of heat. That's what kills standard LEDs in the license plate sockets. With the right amount of heat for an extended period of time LEDs burn out... Thus the heat sink. Also LEDs produce heat on the backside of the light rather than the front like standard lights.

I've also got the 42DD's, and I think they're the perfect brightness.
