You can also buy 12v LED'*. The three status LED'* on my center console are installed with 1k resistors.

I saw some 12v ones, but they were like $5 per LED if I figure 8 per light and that is $80.... too much for me right now...

What are the odds of the 12v ones being much brigher than the lower voltage (cheaper) ones. My Angel eyes have LEDS in them, and no resitor (leads me to believe they are straight 12v) and they are pretty bright...

I do not know of an LED that doesn't need a resistor with 12V, they may be out there. 12V would make an LED turn into a burnt black blob.

The brightness is a function of the design of the LED. Brighter, larger LEDs with broader viewing angles are usually more expensive.

I don't think that many LED'* are necessary though.....

I would guess that the LEDs made for autos are usually the best quality.
