LEDs = 18 watts for $40 and 1 hour

I Just installed these LED lights from superbrightLED.com.



three red LED wedge lights WLED-R5 for the gauge lighting

one blue LED wedge light WLED-B-120 for the high beam indicator

one WLED-R4 for the license plate light

one 1157-R45-T for the tail/brake



Cost $40 something, less than 1 hour total install time.

Genuine before and after current draw readings with a digital meter show a savings of 18watts @12volts.



I like the less bright highbeam indicator, it is still visible during the day but doesnt blind me at night.

I also like the red LEDs in the dash for the same reason.

Good products. Stupid me had the blue under the neutral light. Could barely see it in day light. So I ordered two greens, one for the neutral and one for the turn signal. Now I can see neutral from a mile away. However, I ordered polarized bulbs and a polarized will not work correctly for the turn signal lamp. Now I am stuck with the amber LED I put in there when I mistakenly thought the indicator was amber not green. DOH! Do you also have the LED turn signals?? I got the 18LED bulbs from them so now everything except the headlights is LED.

I didnt get the turn signals since they arent a constant draw item.

How does the LED tail light compare to the OEM bulb? Just as bright? Less?
