Default New switchback LEDs {Pics}

Inspired by last week's thread by Chicago1, I also ordered a similar set of eBay switchback DRL LEDs.

I went with the type that flash amber-off-amber-off for the turn signal instead of amber-white-amber-white....I'll update this post with videos to show the difference.

Here are some pics of the new bulbs and the old. The new ones seem to be a very high quality over my old ones and they were very cheap to boot!














If anyone wants the link to the bulbs let me know. <$20 shipped from USA seller.

Here is the old switchback flashing sequence:



Here is the new switchback flashing sequence:


The white-amber turn signal style never really looked right to me so I think these will be a great setup.

Whenever you replace any halogen turn signal bulb with LEDs on any car, you will need a hyperflash harness, LED flasher for the car, or load resistors.
