    Philips Xtreme Vision 360 T10/194 LEDs ==> License Plate lights

    Car is currently at the dealership and the tech called me and said my license plate bulbs were out. Wanted $80 for parts and labor. No thanks lol.

    Couldn't find any information using the search function on the forums, but would I have any issues with using these bulbs as a drop-in replacement?

    They're listed to fit T10/194 sockets and I like that they are 360 lights with a soft diffuser dome, however I wasn't sure if our cars needed a CANBUS Warning canceller, or if there are issues with flicker using these LEDs. TIA!

    I guess one way to address your CANBUS concern is, does the IPC display a warning message and/or indicator light if/when it detects that either/both license plate bulbs are burnt out or otherwise not working? If not, then I would venture to guess that you may not need a CANBUS warning module or similar...but I reckon the experts here will offer better advice than what I gave.

    Hey David!

    For the stage 2 bulbs, are they 5k or 6k in color? Stage 2 should be brighter than stage 1, but the pics on the product page looks like the 6k color as brighter. I'd like to go with the whiter color spectrum, so let me know if that's stage 1 or 2.

    Thank you for the 15% offer! I also might add on a few other items like a new set of emblems and possibly a catchcan with my next paycheck. Will peruse the forums on which OCC to get! Not to thread hop, but I've heard that with OCCs, you may not pass smog? Do people just remove them when getting a smog check? TIA!

    Hey there,

    The stage 2 bulbs are the ones offered in the pure white 5,500k color, whereas, the stage 1 bulbs are the 6,500k color.

    That is correct, stage 2 is brighter and better quality than stage 1.

    You're very welcome. Ok great, put together the entire list, and send me over an email to [email protected] and let me know.

    I will get back you you with a link to use when ordering, so that the discount is applied at checkout.
