What's different about them? Are these the kind with the resistors and SMT's built in like VLED's or just your basic ebay style LED bulbs?

You have any shots of the LEDS or your car with them installed?

most of the cheap LED's you buy, there is only on light on each circuit face. With these its 3 per face. so example is that a normal 5 wedge tower will have 5 Led's. these 5 wedge towers have 15 Led's in them. ill take pics tonight. but they make the inside of my car look like costco. also they have built in heat sinks too. and they haven't thrown any codes in my car

Factory interior lighting is especially poor in a MINI cabrio. I improved it greatly by converting all of my interior lights to LED and adding supplemental lighting. See my (sorry for the heresy) NAM gallery: http://www.northamericanmotoring.com.../17687/cat/500

A few comments...

Virtually all aftermarket LED bulbs are sourced from China. They come in a wide variety of prices and quality. Assume that an LED product from any vendor comes from China.

No, you can't replicate that set of LED's for $9. Yes, that vendor has a significant markup (but IMO not unreasonable). It's what you get for one-stop shopping instead of researching and shopping for hours (as I did).
