LED Bulb swap for NON-LCI Tails

I really like some of the LCI changes, but I really like the non-LCI tails. However I am totally frustrated with BMW and the absence of LED's on a 2017. That's whole another discussion!

I decided to swap my incandescent #1156 bulbs for SiriusLED replacements. I have been using the replacement LED's on the front of the car for the turn signals for awhile now and they perform perfectly.

See this thread for the front turn signals:

Here are some videos and images. The LED's look great, and are much brighter. I have the bulb check coded out, so I do not see and flicker of course.

There are a total of 10 bulbs that need to be swapped in each rear tail assembly.

Here is what you need:

8 x SiriusLED # 1156 (Red) - Used for the brake lights (x6) and the Turn signals (x2)
2 x SiriusLED # 1156 (White) - Used for the reverse lights (x2)

Link to purchase the LED's:

See above - LED is installed on the right side for comparison.

See above - LED's are installed in both reverse bulb sockets.

See above - LED's are installed in both turn signal sockets.
