License Plate Bulbs

I have an 09 SE. I'd like to order some replacement LED bulbs for the license plate frame.
I know they're 6418 but which length/how many LEDs do I need? I want to get them from Superbrightleds.com

Any others will burn out or melt quickly.

I grabbed some from SuperbrightLEDs, 4-LED festoons in cool white. They look sooo good on the car, and light up the plate evenly.

They are most likely not going to last long. There is a big thread on here about the plate bulbs. They run on 14.4 volts and tend to melt any other leds other than the ones I linked you to.

I had two sets of the 42draftdesigns over the last couple of years. they were great but I eventually had one cut in and out. I decided to give the new superbrightleds ones a try and they have been great for about two weeks now. If you get the ones on superbrightleds you have to make sure to get the correct ones. I got these and have had no issues:

I got the same ones about 5-6 months ago, no issues with either bulb, still going strong. Also I just installed a volt meter gauge and my car peaks around 13.6 volts. Not too sure if that is normal all the time or if my car is odd but so far that's the highest I have seen it peak since it's installation.

Hmmm Maybe the new bulbs are better.

Mine lasted maybe a day before they melted.

Yeah the new ones have a different operating electrical range.

I got the 4-LED festoons, same operating voltage though. They are bright as shit so I don't even know if I'd want 6 hahaha.
