sterilecuckoo58 is on a distinguished road
For the benefit of others looking at the thread who have festoon type bulb holders (a metal pointed cap at each end of cylinder, typically 44, 42, 31 mm long). I bought festoon type bulbs with 6 and 3 leds, one of the 6s was red. I found the 6 to be properly warm white while the 3 was much cooler. Since the 6 warm is not as bright as a 10w incandescent, I'll be going with 6s in each of my lamps. Excess brightness does not seem to be an issue.

I got mine from superbrightleds.com and the model number I liked is 4210-xHP6.
