Good Switches for Car?

Hey guys with my new mods for the winter I am going to redo my Switches in my car, it seems like every mod I do i need to add another switch. So I was wondering if you guys know where I can find good switches that maybe light up or something? And best place to put them?

I like these because they are cheap and you just make a round hole plus a keyed slot so it doesn't turn. They come in 4 colors.

I like these switches, and they are good quality. As long as you use a relay any switch will do though, more of an aesthetic thing really.

Hmm anyone know where to get these ones but with ought the need of relays?

LED Indicator Push Button Switch | Switches | Installation Supplies | Installation/Power Supplies/Misc | Super Bright LEDs


EDIT: Found some but 10$ a switch! My gawd thats expensive. Thinking of putting all of my leds on 1 switch instead of 3, so I'll have my cup holder leds my footwell leds and my vent leds on one switch and then I will have two more for my headlight setup


Anyone use these before?

That's a 3Amp switch, how much current draw does your LEDs pull. Do you light-up all of North Bay? You only need a relay if you're going to exceed 80% of the rated current value. So 2.4 amps safely.
