Automotive interior bulbs that are *actually* 4000K?

I’ve been struggling to find car bulbs that actually 4000K. Actually anything between 4000 and 5000 would be great. Seems everything I order is 6000K or higher.

Looking for T12s and Festoons. Any model/retailer suggestions? No Amazon

Good god I have gone through the same hell. I think I bought about 8 looking for T10s and 31mm festoons. I think I found one but it flickers, so it’s still useless.

Osram make them, but $$$$$. I can’t quite remember the way to fix when a link doesn’t link fully, so you’ll need to copy/paste the below:

Also looks like they discontinued the 4000K W5W for some reason. It’s mentioned in the full catalogue, but not individually on their site.

Update – check out vleds.com. Not cheap, but they look like they’d be good.

I have all but given up on finding affordable, decent, automotive LED anything. I use to search for hours and and hours. Found some but, always so expensive. I have just been sticking to incan’s and halo’s.

I still search for light bars. I think I am going to build my own though. With a buddy as a machinist he can make me any housing I need and I can do the rest. Just haven’t got off my lazy butt and did it yet. Smile
