Very nice! Any errors? Did you need a custom harness?

I believe I was one of the first with these tail lights when they came out. Sorry to say but they are complete trash. Yes they look nice, fitment is acceptable. But looking at your video, I can see your reverse lights strobing, as well as your turn signal lights. I had the same problem with my set of LED tail lights. They sent me new tail lights and two of those small black boxes... None of which helped my problem.

Here is a video of my strobing lights.

^ what's wrong with the strobing??? It's a normal thing with LEDs, and I have no problem with it at all. How much of a disturbance you get from those couple sec of strobing after start-up!?!? I think the word "trash" is a little harsh to be honest.

My reverse lights strobes, my sidemarker LEDs strobes and my little DRL LEDs in my headlights strobes. I can just wish my LED interior lights strobe too!!!! LOL.

im pretty sure all the aftermarket LEDs strobe if your car doesnt come with LEDs, no matter what part of the car they are on. the cars ECU doesnt recognize them. its only for a couple seconds tho and it really doesnt bother me that much..

My LED tails would strobe at start up and after driving the car for 20+ mins. I think it calls for unwanted attention from the police.

Glad it doesnt bother you. enjoy

turn signals look janky with it just being one dot.
the inner taillight looks weird because the outer ones have the 3 rows of LED but not the inner ones.

looks good from far away and turned off though.

No, you have to apply in coats to get the correct layer of shading you want.
