So I foudn LED bulbs online and decided to try them out. I only bought 2 since they are a little pricey and I would rather be out $30 if I didnt like them instead of $60.

There are 20 individual LED lights in the one unit so thats very cool :D

Installation was a bit tricky since the bulbs stuck out a little further then the housing would allow so I had to dremel little holesso the bulb fit into the headlight housing. No big deal and everything is fine.

Personally I like them alot. They are SOOO much brighter. I will buy the other 2 front turn singals here in a few days so they will be matching. I got the bulbs from here...

I have LED's in mine too and I like them great! They are in the turn signals, indicator lamps, side markers, and brake lights. Plus with the lower current there is more voltage now for the headlights which has improved their output slightly as well.

Something that I like as well is that with the lower current, the relay thinks there are burnt out lamps in the circuit. As such, it flashes the turn signals at a higher rate. On a regular bulb this looks silly, but with the instant on/off of the LED it's a very cool effect I think!

And I don't think the brightness is an issue either. Mine were less expensive and I bought them here.

Damn, I just put silverstars in my turn signals. I will have to wait a while before doing this. Maybe the turn signals in the wife OB will burn out and I can switch them up.

I HAD L.E.D.'s in my tails, but when I had a problem with my tails lights running (bad wiring due to stolen radio). One of my friends wanted to get the LED tower for his 02 Maxima. I'm not sure if he ordered them or not. I will show him this thread tomorrow so he has an idea.
