    Hot_Dog I like the led's. How many are in there? and how bright is that?

    As for the Silvervisions... i'm gonna have to check the local auto store for them.

    I just looked online at a couple of places... even Philips. I can't seem to find the Silvervision bulb in a size 1156. All I see is a P12yw or something like that. Is this this same? or do I have to do a lil bit of rewiring?

    The LED's are pretty bright when you are looking straight at them, but they don't throw off much to the side. So if you're standing above them they don't look that bright, but if you get down at the level of an oncomming car, they are pretty bright. There are 24 LED's, 8 (I think) of which point radially on the side. This allows some light to use the reflector and shine to the side.

    Oh, I thought you soldered those LED's together. Where did u get that? I'd be interested in that as well.

    It will pop out when you push on it with your finger. See my thread here for more detailed instructions

    I tried to solder my own at one time...its a real pain. That's why I didn't mind paying $35 for them. Anyway, read above about how I had to hotwire the blinkers so I didn't get hyper flash.

    I still can't decide if I want to do this or not. I bought some PIAA Ion Crystal 168s for the sidemarkers and they look good. So I decided to change the front and rear signals to yellow to match. I bought some yellow bulbs but they are just too bright. So I might go back to amber.

    Eventually I plan on getting the Jag style taillights. So I'm thinking about removing the front cover and getting silvervisions for both. But I can't decide.

    yeah...but then I think about the Jun Eyelids I have. When I put them on, you'll barely be able to see it anyway. =)

    I hate making decisions. =)

    actually me and my buddy did this last week. Kinda scratched up the chrome a little bit, hard to notice unless you look hard You really cant get around scratching the chrome unless you cook your lights.

    The overall appearance of the front of the car is changed dramatically. I put some hyperwhite lights/blinkers/parking lights in and looks mint.
