I just ordered from this website and they are offering free shipping.
The start button LED is called 12volt midget grove lamp. T1 3/4.

Cannot beat the price of 1.46 with free shipping. I don't know how good this is but will let you all know when I get it.

Lumapro 3FRK9 Miniature LED Lamp

Nice find. I found the OEM replacements in different colors, but they are more expensive. Have you tried that bulb in your car? How does it look?

The LED came in 20 minutes ago. Took out the starter button. Found it a little bit small. No problem. Took some foil and wrap around the bulb. Put it in and this is how it looks. I will give it a try this weekend and see if the bulb still flickers.

Credit card is the safest way to pay. At least if you get ripped off, there's fraud protection & you get ur $ back. Whenever I'm "iffy" about something--swipe the card. I'm ordering mine right now :clap:

Its not the only bulb the place sells....it just happens to be the one that costs the least...I doubt they are attempting to Scam the Lotus owners of the world

The first one is amber, second one listed is white. I ordered and received my amber bulb the other day. Got it next day delivery - hilarious for <$1.50. I have not installed it yet.

There is also a red one on the site, don't have the link handy though.

I ordered all three colors. For the price and convenience, it was definitely worth it ... I paid via google check out to avoid giving them my info.
