    Default Maybe time for rear led lights???

    I have led,s in the interior lights, rear number plate and front side lights.

    Hids 35w 6000k dipped and soon the same for the fogs.

    I also have led boards in all footwells and am currently modding the boot lighting.

    It's now time to look at the rear lights (chrome indicator bulbs front and back already) to see what can be done with led,s but retaining the rear light clusters I have.

    Has anyone had experience with rear led bulbs? Good or bad.

    Would appreciate any feedback.

    Cheers

    Edit : I drive with the lights on all the time to combat the strobing so that would not be a problem for me

    I thought LEDs do throw up errors? Although Ignition live would sort that... I'd just leave the break bulbs standard and just change rear driving lights

    Im not sure about errors lee as the front (canbus error free) leds i have are fine and dandy when switched on. I dont drive without lights on due to the strobing effect.

    Brake bulbs are a no go me thinks now. It was just an idea I was throwing out there and to see what came back.

    The bulbs for the rear lights come in at 16.50 or so from Hids-direct so I wanted to check if anyone else had done this already before I part with my hard earned cash

    Thanks for your reply

    You got a link for your front ones!... I hard wired all my LEDs in to avoid errors as there where no decent ones about... But I always have the HIDs on when drive anyway, it's just habit (",)

    Hi Lee

    Sorry for the late reply.

    I have these in my rear number plate, interior and front side lights.

    http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/501-err...ite-p-497.html

    One failed soon after I got it but it was replaced free of charge once I sent an email.

    Not cheap and I did try some ebay ones (3 sets of pairs) which failed almost as soon as I put them in so stuck with the Hids-Direct ones.

    Still going strong with no bulb errors.

    If you want I can pop out now a get a photo of them

    Edit : I do have a facelft 06 though so im not sure about pre facelift. Im sure someone will post with info though. Cheers
