Begs the question, why would you want to make your plate easier to see?

Cool LED licence plate light

Glen,
just want my car to be seen quite clearly and attractive, if you know what i mean...which i think Lexus started, besides my car is so dark at night !
I'm glad Sam had tried it with no issues whatsoever, just bright white light !
thanks for the comments anyway...
have yourselves a good Christmas and a Prosperous New Year...
Happy Boxstering !

led lights

I've done all possible T10 lights in/on car to LED T10. .much brighter and nicer white color
no issues @ all
I've also done licence plate, main interior light , front trunk (bonnet?) & rear trunk
again no issues
even did the T10 in headlights
no issues

Buy from a reputable store and buy the better quality led's

My 2 cents
chris
