I tried these and got 6 bulbs for $36 because i asked what the price would be for 3pr. Not cheap but they are brighter than OEM on running lights and brake lights. OEM are bright enough in my opinion but these still keep a good brightness differential between running and brake. I greatly reduced current draw, especially when brakes are on.

Bulbs have 4 contacts and are polarity sensitive.. If they don't work right turn them around.

My CRUISE works yet.

First pic is LEFT replaced with LED and RUNNING lights ON.
Second is BRAKE lights ON and LED on left - OEM on RIGHT.
Third is top 4 LED on RUNNING lights. LOWERS are OEM
4th is BRAKE on SPOILER and TOP TRUNK LED-lower is OEM and just running light.
5th is RUNNING lights and LOWER LEFT replaced with LED--LOWER RIGHT is OEM

Camera on 3rd pic didn't show the LED as bright as it should have been but does show the difference between LED on top and OEM on bottom.
