    I've got some Osram 5050 white LEDs, they're decently bright and have a nice pure white color. Here's a link to the product page: http://www.osram-os.com/osram_os/en/...g6cp/index.jsp

    Before you can consider this LED, you must make sure the cathodes/anodes of the circuit board are in this orientation:

    Edit--
    Nice thing about this particular LED is that it doesn't have a huge area of phosphor coating, minimizing the yellow appearance when they're not on.

      Look into Samsung 5630 chip ones by Kolite the has em on amazon for 5000k, 6000k I went for Samsung 5730 ones off ebay, and they are 3x brighter and more reliable. as they have heatsink where most 5050 doesn't.

                      Well the osrams look like nice LEDs now im wondering is there any difference in the pinouts of the different chinese and other 5050 leds and the osrams are you selling any needs about 20 (10 per light)

                      i love the led reflectors they do light up clean and even but sadly the leds inside arent the brightest (they are the 3 diode 5050 led package) so im assuming the leds have all one side positive and the other negitive so i dont know if the osrams will work with these

                      As for the 5730 its a totally different package thats a two lead not six so i dont know if they would work with the 5050 pins on the PCB

                        Have you got a link to the DRLs you bought? Also, have you taken them apart yet? A close picture of the circuit board would be nice.
                        Yes, I'd be able to sell you some if they are compatible.

                            I just did a bit of looking around; looks like the Chinese 5050 LEDs have the anodes all on one side, and the cathodes all on the other side... The Osrams unfortunately won't work as a direct replacement on the original board.

                              Is there a way to adapt them? Or some other brighter led alternative
