I legit think it’s magic.

So the center rear brake light bulb on my GTI burned out. I have a Pulse brake light resistor installed that pulses the center rear light 4x when I touch the brake pedal to stop.

I need to replace the bulb and would like to get an LED so it doesn’t burn out so quickly, and if possible find one that is slightly brighter than stock so it catches attention even more.

But looking at LEDs and bulbs online makes zero sense to me since I do not understand electrons.
