Me too, but $10 shipping unless you buy 6 pairs of them ...

Update - so far I don't see the 15 SMD 4014 LED's anywhere except DX.

I did find 24 SMD 4014's for $2 and $350.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Supe...c915ce33&tpp=1

1PC White T10 24 SMD 4014 LED Side Light Bulbs Canbus Error Free 194 W5W LED | eBay

I think these SHOULD fit - 30mm length, and they are 3 less LED's on the front, but 12 more on the rear.

I might take the plunge and try them.

I might hold up on these - I bought these - 4X T10 5050 Ceramic 5-LED License Plate Interior SMD Light Bulbs 6000K White | eBay - which are listed at 31 mm and they didn't fit. 2 x Bright White T10 LED License Plate Light Bulbs -194 2825 168 158 5-SMD Wedge - These are 28mm and would have worked. The DX ones are listed at 31mm and the two 24 SMD ones are 30mm ...

You can get the same ones here on the DX site for $3.12. Shipping may be a little longer, but you won't have to buy $15 worth to get free shipping.

I like these because the the tint was not too blue, and the LEDs are on one side. I tried these as well, but found them to be a little too cool. I've got extras if anyone wants to try.

Sold, for $3 I'll try them and see what happens.

Not sure how best to ask ...

I'm not sure how similar the Sonata license lights are to the Accent. Here is the Accent setup: Hyundai Accent License Plate Light Bulbs Replacement Guide - 2011 to 2015 Model Years - Picture Illustrated Automotive Maintenance DIY Instructions

I bought six 5630 LED's - 2X T10 168 194 W5W 6LED 5630-SMD Pure White Car Side Wedge Backup Light Bulb 12V | eBay - 26mm - worked fine but died after 2 months.

had red five 5050's that fit.

Bought the 31mm ceramic base that didn't fit.

Now using Philips 194 LED's that fit, but not crazy about the light output.

But I hate to spend $3.12 and find out they don't fit either ...

(BTW - I didn't connect the dots at first, but you also are running the taillight bulbs that I am considering.)

If you mean my tail lights, 100% worth it.

Nope - I like your taillights, but I didn't mean that - I'm pretty sure @Hill is using these bulbs: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2x-S...608.0.0.Ny2eqG - I might get those.

Oh yes those are nice too, I'm considering it but may pass since I don't really need any more brightness back there lol

LEDs are a hit or miss, especially off ebay or sites like DX, etc. I've been lucky so far as none that I've purchased have died, and some like my rear turns have been going for at least a year.

@ Tiger-Heli - yes, the 1157 brakes lights from Aliexpress are the ones I'm using. They are about 3x brighter than the 5050 tower module installed in my aftermarket lights. As neverendingxsin mentioned, I really didn't need the extra brightness, but I have been on a roll with mods and running out of ideas, so I figured it was easy and what the ****, why not.

Regarding fitment, any T10 sized LED should fit into the 194 bulb socket for license plates. Some may be a bit longer so you should how much clearance you have before ordering anything to be sure it will fit. I like the ones I installed since the LEDs were only on one side and there is no need to have extra LEDs (and extra heat) wasted. Most cheap LEDs will die either due to excess heat or voltage spikes. Most of the LED modules have voltage limiting resistors to prevent this, but quality varies dramatically, and often it's a numbers game.
