Are they really blue? - if so your asking for a ticket.

I found smaller LEDs seperated out give better results (less hot spots)

your missing the point. pepboys = cheap chinese LED crap. If you want good LEDs buy them from an LED supply store.

yeah, those lights are illegal to use. expect a ticket.
also, why didn't you just use a blue bulb in the original location? (above the license plate) would have been more subtle

they're not blue guys, just a slight blue-ish tint to them- i think it was the camera phone pics-- i just wired them up to the stock wires, i'll take some better pics for you's guys

-they're actually high quality LED's, just not super white like some others

Color has nothing to do with quality. Color is due to the doping of the diode.

i would think the stock tag light wires would have enough juice going to them, no way im going to splice in a relay or a resistor for these mang, ill take some actual camera pics soon!
