I bought mine on eBay from this seller
over a year ago. I replaced all interior, storage bays, and exterior bulbs, except running or marker lights.
I didn't pay a premium. All made in China and still working great. More importantly, they hardly get warm.
To avoid wasting my money, I did a little research around the forums and learned to pay attention to the light color, or color temperature of the bulb as described in the Kelvin scales. LEDs are made to match the color of incandescent bulbs at 2700-3000K (Warm/Yellow, I used these on most fixtures). If you prefer a whiter light, look for bulbs marked 3500-4100K. For bluer white light, look for bulbs marked 5000-6500K. These last ones hurt my vision but are great for (IMHO) indirect light such as the bulbs under the microwave illuminating the stove, inside the storage compartments or the hook up area. The warmer LED bulbs were not bright enough for me in these applications so I went with the whiter/bluer for indirect applications.
