Also, I see no address nor phone number of the business. Another red flag for me! Caveat emptor! I only buys bulbs from a trusted seller ( Xenondepot ) with an excellent track record here on the Forum!

I can say they are a small mom and pop shop. I've been using them for 5 years now and referred them to thousands of people. Initially they started out with German vehicles until I bought my jeep. Quality is superb and in all honesty I haven't even read about their policies. For us here any replacements are sent free of charge with no shipping fees. Give them a try.....buy a single bulb and check for yourself if you want. 👍🏻

Any updates? I'm also interested in the amber bulbs for export model.
Thanks

After a few mails this is what they said:
"Yes, rear turn signals are very tricky in general, ours don't work in a MK4 jetta - they hyperflash, but all other VW models they work so we cannot guarantee simply because we didn't test it"

So there is no guarantee that it will work.

Thanks for the update!
They told me that this bulb should work and is 100% error free but as you said it has not been tested in Grand Cherokee so we'll never know unless we try it. I replaced brake light bulbs, reverse light bulbs and rear fog light bulbs with Philips LED and had no issues at all but still not sure about this turn signal light.

Re: LED conversion for the WK2 Platform

Sherif, couple a weeks ago I decided to try cheap amber turn signal bulbs from China just for the hell of it.

Got a pair from AliExpress which I received 3 days ago. Fitted them and there is of course hyper flashing on the dash and outside mirrors (there isn't any other way for our jeeps imho unless one uses resistors), front and rear signals are normal.

It may bother some but to be honest the hyper flashing is not bothering me in the least. Reason being these led bulbs are great, very bright much better than the crappy standards, built very well by the looks of it (for $22.50 a pair shipped) and I need all the extra light I can get here in our bright sun.

Resistors are all built in and they are truly plug and play, no harnesses, no adapters, no resistors, no error cancellers, just BULBS! Prior I had tested all that Phillips had to offer and the rear turns/stop as well as the reverse Phillips gave me bulb out errors on my dash. Out of the few dozen setups they provided me for testing I came up with the optimal set for our WK2. Pics below!
