What reverse LED bulbs are for Civic MK8?

Hello, I'm currently looking for reverse light bulbs for my Civic. I upgraded my interior and some exterior bulbs to led. I am now wanting to change the reverse light bulbs to better brightness. I tried reversing in a pitch black location and couldn't see a thing in the mirrors or behind as the lights were so dim and had to ask my friend to tell me how far/close I was to objects.

Does anyone know what LED bulbs are good to replace for reversing? I tried some from Aurora bulbs but I'm either getting the wrong ones as they don't fit properly or either they don't sell them. I prefer the 360 degree ones.

Much appreciated.

I had multi panel 5w led bulbs in my car and they failed my mot because of them as one of the panels was flickering, be careful what you get as a lot of aftermarket lights are now causing mot failures due to the stricter laws, my advice, get a rear camera, thatís what Iíve got a rear visibility is crap on 8g at best

Pretty sure this is where I got mine


Don't forget that they do have polarity so if they don't work turn through 180 degrees
