    Have to agree,.. they result in about 1/4 the brightness of standard sidelights. took mine out, back to normal colours, prefer to be seen and see where I'm going!

    Why are all these LED replacements 5watt in power?. Are 20+Watt available anywhere?

    Because that's the wattage of the standard sidelight 501's are.

    In that case, why are the LED's dimmer than halogen bulbs of the same wattage?
