What lights are people replacing with LED's? IMO they're junk. If I had a nickel for everytime I was nearly rear-ended because the people behind couldn't see my LED lights, I'd have a shitload of nickels (I've always loved that quote!).

Plus, as LED's go as turn signals, because of their lower impedance they flashed about 5 times faster than stock. Talk about annoying!

Try out www.hid-lights.com

Ordered last week and got them in 4 business days.

Great bulbs, 90-day warranty or more on most.

Ebay, but what company do they originate from. On my old Mazda 6 they blew out after a year one by one.

Did anybody's sidemarker LED's go out quickly.
The autoillumination LED went out in a few days so I stepped up and got some PIAA's and it went out about a week or two.

Humm... they are not suppost to go out that fast. They can last 3 years easy. I think there is something wrong with your car.

Got mine from superbirghtleds.com. I not too sure about the color though, I went for the white ones, but compared to the low-beams, they look blue. Another draw-back in my case is that the 6-LED bulbs no longer reflect the outline of the High-beam reflector, Just two blue bulbs. Does anybody have better LED's for the 194's in the high-beam reflector that actually gives more of a reflection?
