Just so I understand, why all the interest in licence plate lights? The only people who car about them is the cops.

Because they're the first thing you see besides brake lights when you pull up behind someone at night?

Exactly!

I put mine in a few days ago and when the wife got home from work I walked outside and told her to look at my car. I hit the unlock button on the remote and she said "damn that looks nice!". I asked her "what did" (because I hadn't told her what I did), she said "your light on your license plate".
She asked me what I did and I told her I put led bulbs in there and that I was thinking about replacing all the bulbs with leds. She told me she thinks I should too.
I could care less what anyone thinks... if it looks good enough to get my wife to tell me to spend money... I LIKE IT!

I used to think that, but I caught the half off sale and I thought what the hell I'll buy some.

My dad saw it one night and he thought I had my bumper repainted and it looked nice, I told him it was the LEDs. So I guess it was worth at least the $7 bucks or so I paid.
