    Brighter than LED? I don't think there is such a thing. Not all LEDs are created equally....if you want an LED that is bright you are going to have to buy from a reputable place and be ready to spend some $$$.

    You can also be pulled over for colored lights. Just be aware.

    Look for CREE LED bulbs, much brighter than standard LEDs

    It is illegal in all states to display red, blue or green external lights.
    Cree LEDs are just a type of LED. Look for a wedge type, or 194, Cree LED bulb. I believe that is the bulb type for the trunk and license plate.

    California law:

    24601.
    Either the taillamp or a separate lamp shall be so constructed and placed as to illuminate with a white light the rear license plate during darkness and render it clearly legible from a distance of 50 feet to the rear.
