Re: Perentie Lights, front and rear

Last night I put in replacement LED '21w bulbs' in the reversing light socket and it has to be 5 times better. Now I know they fit I may get extras for the rear indicators but the dual filament stop/park bulbs are a harder thing to do in LED I would guess.

I used these and we'll see how long they last.

I kept the other bulbs original filament, but for the reverse lights..
Search for "2PCS 12V White Power LED Bulb Reverse Tail Backup Fog Light S25 1156 P21W BA15S". Cheap.
I can recommend these. No probs yet and its 18 mths ago. The brightness is outstanding. I work night shifts and when returning home at 2300 I reverse down my 30m driveway with a close fence etc. Trust me, they are the brightest stock reversing lights you ever saw.

The LED reverse lights are still going strong. I have purchased a second pair to stash.

Also changed up to LED Stop light & park light (std is a twin filament bulb). The LEDs arrived from ebay and fitted nice and snug to the socket. They are a bit brighter. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/12V-Red-9W-Cree-5630-12-LED-S25-1157-BAY15D-Brake-Stop-Tail-Light-Bulb-Lamp-/181745168378?

Now that leaves the indicators as the only std bulbs in the combo. I know its not straightforward. The LED replacements need a load in the line or the blinker rate doubles or something - it blinks like its over-caffeinated.
One day.
