Front LED bulb swap

Hi everyone,

Did the front turn signal bulb swap. Here are a few images/thoughts.

LED's can be purchased here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/231759398547...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

It only took a few days to receive the bulbs from China.


Thoughts: No errors, much brighter, no blinking at start that I see, easy change.

Does it feel like its too bright compared with the headlights?

No it's a good match. It's hard to tell brightness and/or color from my image.

Perhaps you can try shooting a walk around video for us to see!

Are you going to code out the blinkers so they only operate when signaling?

Hands down the dumbest thing I've ever done but I was bored. Result are free chrome signal bulbs haha. They look great and there's a unpainted strip that's hidden that will show amber when signaling at night

Unfortunately the one's you linked don't fit



Pins are at 180 degrees and should be at 150.



Luckily they're inexpensive.

I'm ordering these instead

The ones I originally linked do fit (#1156). It looks like the ebay'r changed the auction to a 7507.
