Hmm...I don't think I'd really mind if they blinked really fast if they were BRIGHTER than stock....if they are actually weaker than stock bulbs like Martin says, I wouldn't want them. MYISRULZ says they are BRIGHT while Martin says they are less bright than stock...whats the deal??

Also, so they have red and amber colors available? Cool
I have the 8 LED one which are amber. I left one stock light and one LED and the stock light is around 2 times brighter. The reasone it's brighter is the mirror inside the light houseing is made for a regular builb. The LED lights basically shoot light straight out and not 180 deg. like an regular light. So the mirros inside the light houseing do nuthin @ all.

Maybe if i can find an LED with more than 8 LED's it might be worth it. But the 8 LED's just fit inside the ligh houseing as is.

ok first i want to apologize for not posting the pics yet - loser friends did not give me the digi cam - i might go out and buy one
- so to answer the brightness question

i find that they are brighter - if u look at the light at eye level - they are certaintly very bright IMO - Martin is right about the reflection - that is why u can notice the brightness at eye level as the light is shot directly out - i mean i say get them and try them out - it is only 12 bucks - and as for the blinking - yes they do blink 2x fast - like if your blinker were going out - i kinda like it though -

MARTIN- did u try the red ones ?? i didn't change the ones up front to LED's - just the rear turn signals and i notice that the red ones are really bright - i am sending FAIRUZA a pair of them - so if i can't get a pic maybe he can -
