      These look good thanks for posting pics. So you got the 64132 size? Install pretty simple I would assume?

      Yeah. Took about 10 min to do the install. You have to remove the entire light from the trunk. But it's only three bolts that hold them on

      My car is tinted as you know. So if I'm backing up I want to be able to see behind me. If it is blinding someone when I'm in reverse, it would only be for a few seconds

      If anything, that's a good thing. Some people don't acknowledge reverse bulbs when driving through the parking lot, so bright ones should alert people more IMO.

      So I did this yesterday........how in the world do you get the beige colored plastic clip back in? Do you put it in before you place the lamp back in the trunk or after? Seems impossible after but I couldn't get it to work either way. Got the black one back in, so mine are in and working, but I still need to put the other clip back on to make sure they are completely tight. For the life of me I can't figure it out, and it was dark out when I did it so I'm sure that didn't assist in the process. They do look nice though.

      Yeah, you have to put the housing partially back in and connect the tensioners then push in and tighten. It's a pain!!

      Phantom I did the install today and get what you are saying! I found if you just pull the lining in the trunk back a little it helps! And just line up the flat side of the baige fastener and leave the black one as loose as possible until they are all connected! hope this helps!

      I installed these bulbs in my 2010 cc last night. I have tinted windows to the legal tint in NC which is 35%. No tinted tail lights. No back up camera. I do have the racing dash LED license plate lamps from ECS. (and I highly recommend them) but as for the the led reverse lights.... Yea they look cool but as for help with backing up... It isnt better at all maybe even worse. Most of my back up light comes from the tag lights.

      Does anyone know if these work on the 2013 CC? I can't find a listing of any of my bulbs (or wipers) on any website nor in the manual. Any help appreciated. Thanks
