Contemplating upgrading the globes to LEDs, but I'm wondering which ones have been found that actually last their claimed lifespan?

Heat seems to be an issue with the T10 ones I've tried in the parkers and numberplate lights, there isnt anywhere for the heat to go and they just cook themselves to death within a month or 3.

why do you think aftermarket led is an upgrade
using quality incandescent globes should last around 8 years
buy from holden or at auto parts store specify commercial or long life quality

I'm after brighter and more noticeable. My ute is black and i work evenings, so im driving around with my headlights on just so other drivers around here see me. Just want to do it on the back end since ive had a couple of close calls of copping a car up the ass too.

I reckon they look pretty great. Of course they make them for sedans and even wagons, but not the utes...
