I have tried a few and either they burn out or look like chit. Even tried the blue colored incandescent ones also.....I would like a nice bright white bulb.

The problem is the angle of the metal that hold the bulbs. It's not at a good angle to get the bright light on the plate itself.

I have these...

Ebay has the 360 ones plus the one on the top, the one pictured above will leave the license plate dim, the origional bulb will illuminate all over, the picture above will shine the light in one direction and the direction of the bulb when mounted is sideways, try this one:

Your link and pics are for 3357 bulbs AND flashbacks, which are NOT for the license plate.

If you want license plate lights like that, go to my link, about half way down the page you'll see those bulbs in a 194.

194 multiangle smd led will work, or go to oznium dot com and get mini ccfl kit in white and rig up the tubes and you'll be bright for sure(dim while cold outside). i have smd leds in now but will eventually go ccfl just because i feel like it

Neither is the one YOU posted!
I wanted to make sure Platinum didn't follow your example and purchase a directional bulb.
