i think the "super bright" cost RM20 is too much...it's a different wattage of these two bulbs.the RM20 one maybe the wattage higher than the RM8 so become brighter.
just get a higher wattage bulb it can fit in the bulb holder.

as long as u get those bulbs with 12V input... then it is ok...

those electrical shop bulb which is used for house electrical items is 230V... not suitable.... read de voltage rating...

LED, less heat, less current drawn..may brighter..but not really..depend on situation and applications. LED current drawn are in MiliAmpere MA....which are really low..the legs are just 2 steel..

wat meter u use?

Thanks howiechoo..

I'm using old skool toyota meter.. I'm planning to swap all the lights at the meter & dashboard to red color.. For car usage All LEDs are the same voltages and watts or they are different? Is it true some says you cannot touch the glass area aar?? :rock: :rock:

if the LED u buy is same batch, then same volt and watt..but, like say u buy 2 from this shop and buy 2 from another shop, although the look is same, but the specification may differ..and, if the shop had mix all the same look LED together, u may also get diff spec LED..try ur luck...

meter bulb is not headlamp bulb.you can tuch the glass area..just clean it with cloth b4 install can edy.ask they stop bullshitting......

today i dismantle my dashboard to get a sample of my meter light... wanna scout around electrical shop see where got sell those... plan to change to white...







i think have to change 4 of those so that the background light can change... other small small ones no need la, coz they are for indicators...

PS: i thought sifu sifu here said those with blue tint around the bulb produce white light??... why my original bulbs tinted blue dont produce white light geh???
