    Default What Led Bulbs for Angel Eyes

    I have angel eyes inthe car at the minute with the standard capped white 286 led bulbs (no bulb warnings by the way) and was wondering has anybody any experience of what the lights would look like if I changed the bulbs to the smd capless led bulbs.
    I think they are supposed to be brighter, but not sure if it would just be money wasted. I've saw these on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/10-x-T5-286-37...item19b8344841

    Any input would be appreciated.

    I have the standard white led bulbs fitted replacing the 286 filament bulbs.
    There is a nice bright white light of them to match the 6000K Hids I have fitted. Fitting these bulbs will bring up bulb warnings and flashing so I have powered the leds throu a relay direct to the battery the same as you would do with spotlights so they come on when you turn on the sidelights. Also fitted 2 resistors to fool the bulb check system. Works perfectly.

    See attached thread for more info.
