    LED reversing lights

    Nothing amazing but they are better than the incandescent bulbs, the like is white, which you'd expect from LEDs and they are brighter, which makes it a bit better for reversing at night.
    Well, I've had 1 fitted for about a week and when parking at night I can see the difference between the two different bulbs.

    I bought them from T8ups.
    I got no errors but I'm not sure if the bulb warning system works on reversion lights.

    any here, here's some pics.

    I used the same camera settings on each image to make the comparison easier.

    New


    Combined.


    All new.

    yeah, its 4 boards with LEDs on both sides, fitted in to a standard bulb fitting.


    Free style?
    Poke the LEDs and cables through the hole and let them dangle?

    Not quite.

    As you know, i used custom clear tail lights and as such when i went for the facelift red tint, i had to do the reverse section red aswell to get the look i wanted, so if i were to use normal position reverse bulbs it would end up pink!

    So to combat this, the only clear section i have is the indicator piece, so i was wiring in 2 or 3 standard single LED's on each side, then would drill them in under the indicator bulb and fit them with the little plastic collar to set them in like so
