I personally like my plate to be as dim as legally possible......ie OEM bulbs. You must have a cool vanity plate or something, am I right? If so, I would go for the Silverstars assuming they make them. BUT, If you have LED rears, then go LED.

Found Silverstars @ Autozone today. No vanity plate, I just like the look

That said,

To complete my mobile thought above... Who designed the plate bulb setup? Dual lamps? heavy duty screws? Need to remove the plate to remove the lamps cleanly? Sheesh
