Wondering why, on your super hi-tech Model S, your license/number plate lights are not LED? Us too. To address that, we've developed a pair of LED replacement festoon bulbs that are exclusively designed for the Tesla Model S.
Please note: new Model S's appear to be shipping with non-replacable LED bulbs - if you have a newer VIN (90xxx and up) please verify that you still have the regular bulbs before ordering; you will see two small screws securing them.
These bulbs have been over a year in development, and differ from anything else you'll find on the internet. Specifically:
In summary, we've been really thorough when designing these. Check out the photo which shows all the design iterations before we finally got to a design we were totally happy with. They’re not too bright (but are bright enough to visibly light the road directly behind you in the rear camera view), not too blue, and represent the very best quality and design in the world of replacement LED bulbs/lamps - these are the bulbs your Model S deserves!
The packaging includes a link to the very simple installation instructions which you can also find here.
