Upgraded my rear indicators to LED

Post by ChillCupra » Sat Dec 21, 2019 12:41 pm

I just did this. Took all of 10 mins. Now the whole car is LED (not bothered about reverse lights).

These are the ones I ordered:

This was one of the first things I did to mine when I got it, they have a more intense light output and illuminate instantly.
Also upgraded the poor reverse light to led, the bulb is so easy to access compared to the reversing bulbs and again give a much better light.

These are the LEDs I used to upgrade my reversing lights what a difference from dim to a bright white light with no errors.

Hi. I decided to try the led upgrade of my reversing lights. Impatience caused me to buy them with Amazon prime, which was more expensive than Ebay however I ordered them in the early hours of this morning and received them tonight. I took a picture of the end result but they are so bright that it is not really a good picture but I have posted it anyway. The only way I could think of showing how bright they were was to photograph the reflection on the inside of my garage door. There is a before & after shot. It is obvious which is which. Appologies for the photos being side on. I dont know why that happens. The indicators will be done now in due course. Cheers.
