Re: V-LEDS 5k DRL Replacement

Has anyone found plug & play front LED turn signals that appear silver but light up amber?

Re: V-LEDS 5k DRL Replacement

Not LED but I found some regular chrome bulbs that do that. I've used them in the past and may just get those. I've seen them on ebay for $5 + S&H up to $30 on a website. I'll start cheap and see what they're like.

Re: V-LEDS 5k DRL Replacement

Yeah, I have the silver bulbs in my box. Problem is that they are so dim.
Supposedly the phillips silvervision bulbs are better, but they don't offer them in the 7444 size for the WK2.

Re: V-LEDS 5k DRL Replacement

We are working with a member on this forum to do a review of the Putco Neutron 3157 LED bulbs and how they perform in the DRL. This non biased review will be posted on this forum for members to see :-)

These Neutron LED bulbs by Putco are supposed to be the brightest LED bulbs for a 3157 application and they are made right in the USA in Putco's story city, IA location.

Re: V-LEDS 5k DRL Replacement

I just ordered my set of V-LEDs 6k.
http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED/T...49832-1-2.html

The 5k are currently out of stock. I spoke with the company that I ordered through and inquired the difference between the 6k and 5k. If this is common knowledge I apologize but I was informed that the 5k is pure white and the 6k has a tiny hint of blue.

FYI if you signup to receive their newsletters they give you 15% off your first order =$12 for these bulbs. The code they gave me was NHL2011 not sure if it was a one time deal but you can also sign up for the newsletter yourself. With shipping it was $71.98

Steve (or anyone who might know) -

Is there a pure white option available for any of these LED replacement options for DRLs? I put some on my jeep and love them and would like to put some on my wife's vehicle (same connection) but she is not a fan of the slight blueness that mine (Putco Nova White - 234157W) have. I am not sure how you know what shade of white/blue they will be when you order them so looking for some advice for finding one pure white with no blue tinge?

Re: V-LEDS 5k DRL Replacement

Hey Bud,

The white ones are as white as you're really going to get (at least from what I have seen).

All automotive LED bulbs will have a slightly bluish tone to them when compared to the yellowish tone of a halogen bulb.

Re: V-LEDS 5k DRL Replacement

Hey everyone- new owner here (actually haven't taken delivery yet) but am looking to do a few updgrades right away. Was searching through the forum and found this thread. Question for the folks using these bulbs as DRL's- v-leds site states not for use as DRL's so any issues with them so far?

also, has anyone replaced their fogs with LEDS? if so are there any pics? I've used V-leds quite a lot for my acura and have always been happy with their quality.

thanks for the info?

Re: V-LEDS 5k DRL Replacement

Just an update for everyone on the V-LEDs.

Since my original install of these LEDs almost a year ago I've been through 2 sets. They keep failing. My immediate thought is the heat from the engine is (literally) melting the plastic around the LED because upon inspection of the LED the plastic is deformed and (appears) melted.

I've pulled the LEDs out for now until a solution can be found.

On a positive note. V-LEDs have offered to buy both sets back and refund nearly $200. Good guys.

Wonder if that's why it now says not DRL on the bottom of the V-LED page.
