Purchased a new dash light. It's a small front pod with 4 amber strips and 2 white LED's for 18 total. It's a smaller footprint than the strobes I got from Robert. It fits just under my rearview mirror.

Price shipped: under $15.00

I'll add some pics and a small video in a bit.

Direct from China. It took about 23 days but for $9.99 + $4.99 S&H I could not beat it. I like it way better than the strobes and the fact that I rarely use lights makes it all the better. I just could not beat the price for a toy.

Currently it's placed just slightly right of the rearview mirror module.

Hmm, the alternating pattern doesn't look all that bright... the "super" flash looks pretty bright though.

Actually when you look dead on they are. Not a lot of flashback. The light is focused.
