does anyone on here have LED tail lights and indicators on their cars? im looking at getting some for mine and just wondering how much people paid for them?
ive been quoted 90 bucks for the indicator set (2 rear, 2 side and 2 front) with the relay to make them work

Iv bought the Jay Car ones and can say stay clear of that stuff.

1. They dont fit... alot of jamming is required (this will damage the holder) both bulbs didnt fit on my au or friends el
2. They are extremely dull
3. They are $20 per bulb for the stop lights and we can never get them to switch between park/stop lamps

Avoid them you will only end up returning them. Also that link has the even cheaper ones we got the ones with i think... 25 leds maybe. The next one up from the one in that link. Stay away from those leds and the led's sold by supercheap.

The supercheap indictor bulbs ($20 for 2) are designed to fit the offset for clear holders not orange holders (then there is really no point to making orange ones that fit the clear bulb holders). These have 3 led's and well are impossible to see. Im surprised they keep selling the stuff.

No i haven't, Apparently uou need a special relay or a resistor to compensate for the loss of load.

there isn't much difference in the light intensity in LED brake lights to tail lights but it is noticable. i have 2 sets for sale that i got from the states last year.

I bought LED tail light globes from http://www.ledshoponline.com/ and after putting them in I took them straight out again as they were too dim. The stop lights are about as bright as the tail lights, and the tail lights are about as bright as a smart lock light in the sun!

I think it's that red LEDs through red lens don't work. If you can get clear LED globes, that might work better.

As for your indicators, the LEDs don't draw enough current so the indicators will flash fast (as if a globe is blown). You just need a flasher can that doesn't have the flash fast mode.
