Those are cool.

I'm assuming they glow orange? Where'd you get them?

Read up in my L1224R install thread. You'll need to get a new flasher that's rated for LED's and it'll also get rid of the gross 'hyperflash' you'll have once those are installed.

I still have hyper flash. Comp thinks my bulbs are out due to no current draw from the LED's.

Napa flasher EP-27 fixes the hyper flash if you only have 2 sets of LED's not all 4 corners done. I think I picked my 63 LED 3157's up on eBay for $25 a bulb shipped... 2 white for the front markers and 2 red for the rear tails. I have hyper flash bad though, but it doesn't bother me. I'm used to it.

JP7 had to add a regular bulb to get rid of that, even with the LED flasher relay

Those look like they're gonna be pretty sweet.

I have orange flakes all over the bottom of my lenses from the colour peeling off the bulbs. My corner lights are almost white now lol.

No, get on your back and look up under the dash almost behind the steering wheel. There might be a cover on it but theres a sort of fuse box up there with a couple different relays. You'll need to go to the local AP store and pick up a EP 27 electronic flasher to replace the stock blue flasher under your dash. Just swap them out and you'll be good to go.

I love the look of my LED's but they really don't seem to be as bright as my stock bulbs where. I used to be able to see the reflection on the street and signs when my turn signals were on, no I can't, kinda disappointing. It's harder to see when I am backing up too, no where near as bright.

I have LED all around. Tails, corners, and turn signals. I have an EP27 flasher from Autozone and I don't get the hyperflash. Maybe you got a bad flasher?

I would try getting the flasher and see what that dose first. I got mine a napa for $19 with tx. It took me 2sec to find the flasher under the steering wheel. Its in a black box about an inch wide by like 4 or 5 inches long. It will be the top blue one. If you cant find it pm and ill snap a pic for ya.
