You can pick some up from here for less than 30 a set. I haven't tried the backup lights but have the brake and indicator lights and they work great.

LED Bulb Set

Well, the LED lights are not as bright as I wish they were, and the GB price was not as low as I wish it were, but it is an improvement over OEM. I would suggest to AE Lighting that when they make these again that they put a few more LED facing directly out the back of the car. There sure is room for more LED's on the stalk of lights.

Well, I'm not interested in having my expensive headlights cut open and then 'resealed' to install LED rings

I installed these last night but I dropped one of the T-20 screws into the audio amp/bumper pit, with no luck of retrieving it. Does anyone know the part number for the screws so I can order another one?

Just looked on Penskeparts.com for your car - it doesn't show the screws for the reverse bulb assembly under the tailight diagram

Might be in another area, but I couldn't guess where...

Thanks for trying I looked in my Bentley manual, but it is pre-LCI so there is nothing in the taillights assembly section. It's a Torx T-20 screw, maybe I can get it from the dealership?

Yes, you will need to code out cold/warm bulb checks and error reporting to stop the flickering on startup

Check out the Coding Section of the forum for full details...

Thx.
So for $129.00, you still have to
code the lights? What a great deal!

Coding is DIY, so not a biggie

The flickering on startup never bothered me.
