I kinda feel like my bulbs from 42draft have a little blue to them as well. I may give superbrightleds a try sometime and see how they compare.

Well every LED bulb in my car is from Vled's, except for the 42's, and I can say their 5k white bulbs are WHITE; I have eight of their 5k white, Lol. They come out a little whiter than my 4300k HIDs, and I never had a flicker out of their LEDs. I always wait for a sale or coupons to buy from Vled's.

just make sure they are the 39mm instead of the 36mm and you'll be set

Thats not what i was saying, i was not intending the quality of their bulbs.
I know for the 08-11 focus the license bulbs are not 12v they are 14.5v. this causes the flicker or will cause the bulb to die prematurely
