If anyone is still searching for LED bulbs, I ordered this one:
Amazon.com: Anyray T10 921 194 10-5050 SMD LED Bulb lamp Super Bright Cool White DC 12-Volts: Automotive Amazon.com: Anyray T10 921 194 10-5050 SMD LED Bulb lamp Super Bright Cool White DC 12-Volts: Automotive
(can be also found on ebay for a couple of dollars less) and it is great! It's freezing out, so I didn't take a "before" picture, but you all know what the stock light looks like. The LED is much whiter and brighter.
Oh and the installation was beyond simple!



Now considering putting these into the dome light:
Amazon.com : Jtech 2x T10 921 194 24- SMD LED Bulb Super Bright Warm White : Automotive General Purpose Light Bulbs : Car Electronics Amazon.com : Jtech 2x T10 921 194 24- SMD LED Bulb Super Bright Warm White : Automotive General Purpose Light Bulbs : Car Electronics
, since I think I prefer a warmer toned light for the cabin. Too bad they don't make the little map light LEDs in warm white!

These look like the same lights. $2.50 ($14.99 for 6 pcs) each and shipped fast with Amazon Prime.

Have finally got sub installed and have upgraded trunk light to led and relocated it down into the sub box. It is a 12 led panel and it is hot glued to the back of the sub grille. Will be interested to see if it stays put once the sub is fired up or if further mods will be required. Have run the extension wires thru the sub box and then have a plug hidden by the grille for a quick disconnect. The relocation has seen a great improvement in light across the trunk.

@cranraspberry - Thanks for the link. These bulbs are as scarce as bird poop in a cuckoo clock. I just ordered the bulb through Amazon. Consider yourself my new best friend.

Got my cargo led installed tonight. Pretty big difference. Still have the red led panel in the dome (I like it) and stock for now up front.

Me, too. I had a tense moment installing the bulb. I bent one of the "thingies" on the opposite side of the LED but it bent back into place without breaking the wire. Whew! Well worth the $10.

Exact same thing happened to me this evening!

These 24 SMD LEDs put out an almost white light with just a slight hint of blue and really look great in the interior of my Fit.

I am highly recommending these 24 SMD Cool White LEDs. And they only cost $6.79 for a pair. I used one for the Cargo Bay and one for the Dome light.
1 - Are they holding up since you installed? JTech LED's are notorious for flickering and going out after short time.

2 - Can these fit into the map/reading lights up front?

These JTechs might be slightly less bright, but if they are it's not noticable.

Nice thing about the Jtechs is that they came in a two pack for $7 shipped. I paid $10 for the LEDWholesaler light and only got one, which turned out to be really fragile. I put one of these jtechs in the cargo area and one in the dome. I found that when I had the map lights set to "door," if I would turn them on, I would forget to turn them off because when I opened the door they went on anyway. It was a problem with me, not the light, but my solution was to turn them off and get a brighter light for the dome that will light the whole car without the maps. The Jtech light linked here are bright enough for that.

I noticed one of the ones I put in the license plate is flickering. The others have been doing well.

I had this a few times. The contacts would rust out. I'm back to the OEM incandescent bulbs.

Just a couple minutes to do and makes a huge improvement! I used these:

Amazon Amazon

Very bright and a nice, clean white color. Think I'll try the second one in the dome.
