I ordered one at the same moment I read your first post in this topic, just my type of mod since I always wanted to have led signals

Placed an order at a Swedish site the same minute I ordered TapTurn, four T20 and two T10 Amber leds, the two T10 since we have signals in the front fenders too

Gives the car a fresher and more "up to date" look when turning, hopefully

It sure will... plus if the LEDs are bright enough, they are a lot easier to see because of their instant on/off (so they are safer)

All stuff came in the mailbox today

When I realized that the relay was located behind the fusebox I just wanted to dig a hole and bury the car,
but it wasnīt so tricky to change it anyways, loosened the two 10mm screws and then bent out the entire box with a screwdriver so much that I could get the relay out and in with the new one

I activated the Strobe on the Hazards, and when I was out on a test run tonight I actually had "use" for it, I had a car behind me who was all up in my trunk tailgating me, so I made a Strobe for a few seconds and damn that car slammed on it brakes and stayed way behind me after that haha.

But the Leds was a bit dissapointing, weaker output than I expected, and the T10 was to long to fit in the fendersignal, and that one didnīt have to be Amber cause there was a coloured cap inside it

Nice! Yeah it is easy to install.

You have to use amber LEDs behind a amber lens (or red behind red) white will not work.

And most LED bulbs aren't very bright... the ones I have in the video are the brightest for sure, and the ONLY ones I recommend (but expensive).

Very cool flasher mod Tobias. Thanks for sharing. For those of you hesitant to spend this amount of coin on it, but still want to install leds in the signals without getting the hyperflash, the correct flasher from superbrightleds to order is: toyota flasher marked PN: 81980-50030. Thanks @inspar8r for providing that info.

I never updated my post you found in that search, but I have since installed it and it got rid of the hyperblink and the flashers function as they normally should. I may be doing this mod down the line though at some point for it's uniqueness factor. It's definitely sweet!

Nice job!

Just ordered mine.

Went for strobe option.

Planning on strobe/wig wag hazards, normal turn signals with 4 or 5x tap turn feature.

Nice, so just like my setup. I did change the tap turn to 5 blinks instead of 4, seemed like 4 was too quick.

Nice mod, I was excited to read about the group buy, until it was a no go. Still purchasing this mod within the next month or so.
