i didn't even think to check their site. awesome prices. i went with the 1.0W t10 assuming they'd match the dome. i got 3 domes and 6 t10. gonna do my dome, trunk, all interior lights and license plate.

they also had great deals for 18-Led reverse lights, and turn signals, fogs, etc. i will be doing those next.

all together i paid $23 shipped and my whole interior will be done. unfreakinbelievable

I will go ahead and add my doings in this post as well I suppose.

First off I ordered from www.bestofhongkong.com

My order included:

2 x Pair of T10 4 LEDs - Blue (T10-4B) = $6.98
3 x Pair of T10 4 LEDs - White (T10-4W) = $11.67
1 x Pair of T10 4 LEDs - Yellow (T10-4Y) = $2.29
2 x 31mm - 4 LEDs Festoon Blue (ft31-4b) = $3.34
2 x 31mm - 4 LEDs Festoon White (ft31-4w) = $3.34
------------------------------------------------------
Air Parcel (Registered): $3.82
Sub-Total: $27.62
Total: $31.44

------------------------------------------------------

So I ordered two festoons because I wanted to see if blue would be bright enough for a dome. Otherwise I am going to put the white ones in. The yellow pair was ordered for my headlight blinker, since I plan on clearing them out within a month or so. Would need a yellow bulb for that to remain legal.

- x2 white in rear plate
- x2 blue in doors
- x2 blue or white in dome
- x2 blue behind seat
- x1 white in rear cargo area

The idea was to have the car be entirely blue when opening the door. And have the cargo with white. I also did some plastic dip to the dome area. Leaving me with two spare sets of White for the front headlights parking lights, and a rear plate for my second car!

Picture time of the plastic dip dome area. Taken apart to not coat the bluetooth.





Taped off and bluetooth removed from the speaker.

Have you got any others that you can test with to see if they work? Or maybe plug the ones you got in the door lights, since they are readily accessible... just to test them? You might of got some bad ones...
Almost forgot to answer - You were right on the money. The two LED's I ordered fail to work in other lighting spots. Odd chance of ordering two bad LED's.

Yes.. that is kind of strange! I would avoid that particular dealer (where you got them) in the future....

That sounds similar to what I want to do with my car - blues for the interior, except for the cargo area and domes. So do I need just these?:
2 x Pair of T10 4 LEDs - Blue (T10-4B) - for the interior
1 x Pair of T10 4 LEDs - White (T10-4W) - for the cargo area
2 x 31mm - 4 LEDs Festoon White (ft31-4w) - for the domes

Also, your link didn't work for me, did you mean this:
Besthongkong

I'd also be interested if you found the blue to be bright enough for the domes - I was thinking to go with white for brightness and clarity in case I need to look at or read something, such as directions.

Honestly I am not sure how bright the blues are. They have 4 LED's inside them. So I am betting on them working great. However I don't have my order yet. I got about a week left until I get it. I will let everyone know when they arrive. The link works for me.

if not for you. www.bestofhongkong.com

But I want to see pics nowwwww. Is my list right for what I want to do?

Does the link I posted take you to the same site at least? I've tried through multiple ISPs and they all time out.
