960 Lumen 12000k LED assembly for $6.30:

24-5630 SMD LED White Light Car Indoor Lamp (T10 / SV85 / BA9S 12W 12000K 960-Lumen DC 12V) - Free Shipping - DealExtreme

FIts inside the light fixture just fine, puts out a lot of bright white light. The bulb adapter showed up broken and I had to re-solder it, but the assembly itself is well made. Overall I'm pretty happy with it. I tried to take comparison photos, but cameras mostly do light-leveling so it's hard to really tell. It's brighter, I know that much!

I ordered and installed the LED that the OP links in the first post. After a day and 3 uses the adapter socket that plugs into the car melted and the light stopped working. There was very very slight charring.

No damage to the socket as I was able to plug in the OEM bulb and return to stock.

Just a heads up and would appreciate any other suggestions for a brighter LED panel back there. When it worked, it was awesome.
