wow the old amber ones are that dim? the white ones aren't that bad though.
I didn't get around to ordering the amber ones yet. Good timing because Derrick has just informed me he will be getting these "super bright" amber leds. we'll see. can't wait to review these and report back to you guys.

hope these will be my last set of sidemarkers haha.

Too bad I just saw them
nice price! i wonder if it is error free though because there is bulb checks for sidemarkers and exterior lighting.

I'll let you know as soon as I get them.
These are awesome! Just mounted and they're as bright as the OEM ones!

If you guys want to place an order remember to order 2 pieces, they don't come as pairs.

I agree!!!!!

They are as bright if not brighter than the OEM bulbs!

They also flash in sync with the LED turn signals on the headlights and tailights!

What a great mod!!!!!!

I am sooooo happy!!!!

gaifaun - just a quick question for you. Is the white side marker street legal in Vancouver?

If i am correct, i think white rear signal is not legal in Vancouver.

I have these side markers. It just replaces your stock bulb to a really bright LED.

I've also smoked my stock LED using VHT night shade. Fraction of the cost of buying a entire replacement that fits horrible.

Whats the life span of an avg fog bulb h8?

I had gp thunder h8 7500k and one blew out in 6 months, the other in 9 months.
I drive < 10k mi per year, so im a little annoyed at replacing bulbs so often.

Are there longer lasting bulbs ?
