came in today
Were they what you expected?
They look clean... but it seems a little greenish, or maybe that's just the way it in the sunlight.
Can you let me know if they flicker or code on you? Maybe some pics during later in the day to see the true color of how it lights up during the dawn? lol...
I like the look of those, and 6000k is right on the monet for hyper white lights.
In for night time pics as well.
anyone try these ? http://www.xtralights.com/hi-intensi...whitepair.aspx
also there is labor day sale going on and you can use promo code HL10 like "letsmotor" said
interested in these
http://www.xtralights.com/hi-intensi...whitepair.aspx (these say there are CANBUS)
not sure which one to go with any opinions ?
probably end up going with one of each. one for DRLs and one for Reverse lights. lmk what you guys think
You can get the Cheaper ones for the reverse tail lights on Ebay.
They dont need that much power to run on, coz you're only gonna use it for like a few seconds as you back up your car anyways. The DRLs obviously run longer as you're driving without your low-beams on. So you would need a durable long lasting LED bulb for them.
You only need the high powered ones like the ones shown by letsmotor.
He's the one that helped me where to go find those DRL Leds.
yes but my question is will the canbus 1156 some how help with the power leak on the reverse lights? it was noted http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...LED-Bulb-Guide that the reverse lights have a power leak.
I'd like to think that the larger cavity of the drl light helps the heat issue. I know vleds had said this type of bulb would be too hot in a constant on scenario, but that may only apply to the smaller housings, i.e. rear lights or reverse, etc.
I have the 18 SMD Led's in the reverse lights (no power bleed), but I do get an occasional right reverse bulb out warning, but it never stays on. The 18 SMD led's are way too dim for reverse lights IMO though.
I've been running my 540 lumen led drl's for a month now, just did a road trip where they were on constantly for 10 hrs, never shut the car off. Has absolutely no heat issues whatsoever. Save your money on eagle eyes, go to xtralights.com they have the same style as the eagle towers and are super bright (540 lumens) search for a coupon code you can get them shipped for under 38.00 for the pair. http://www.xtralights.com/super-intensity360ledbulbs1w-top3x15w-side-1156typewhitepair.aspx Code HL10
Might still work.
I looked at those, the only difference being that the eagle eyes are 12W versus your 6W, I think that's twice the wattage and more than double with the new 14W.
But, I'm glad you haven't had any issues and like em. Good to know that the design is holding up across different vendors, hell they may all come from the same factory in Hong Kong.
As far as saving money, the cost of any of these LED's are silly compared to the incandescent that costs less than 99 cents we're replacing it with.
