    go to ebay.com and in search put in " bright red led" as far as 12v goes you have to add an resistor.

    If i had space to put the resistor in I wouldnt even have to ask that question.
    As specified im looking for 3mm 12V red LED, no bootleg ones.

    well i have never seen a 3mm led take straight up 12v i am pretty sure you have to have an resistor. get the smd they are really tiny. thats what varad,fusion and etc used on there led bars.where are u putting this that you dont have a room for the resistor?

    If you have space only to put those ones,

    how you'll fit a 5mm with a resistor?

    and they do exist

    I'm not too sure these are 12V diodes, but the price is right. I bought a dozen or so from these guys.

    Are you sure it uses 12v? If you are replacing a LED on your car with another LED. It probably uses 1.5-5v.. some incandesants use lower than 12 voltages as well. Use a voltmeter to make sure you need a 12volt source. If you are running off a carputer ps you could utilize the 5v line. What are you doing that requires 12v? Something like my tutorial?
