2008 9-3 SS Rear Tail-Lights

so I need to replace one of my rear brake lights and will probably have to replace the other soon.

I want to replace them with LEDs if I can as I love the instant on and off that LEDs give.

does anyone know of any bulbs that will work as I know our rear bulbs are unique to the car. Also I want ones with the resistors built in so the car doesn't think the bulb is out.

LUMEN® 1156CR - Tail Light Replacement LED Bulb (1156 / 12088, Red)

these look good but at $15 a bulb I want to make sure they'll work right before buying. any experience?

I dont have any info on Saabs with LEDs. But I just put 4 LEDs on my fathers Harley for less than $20 total. He made the resistance circuit, soooo.

The ones you want to look for are "CANBUS error free"
