That is very odd.... We've sold a ton of Philips LED replacement bulbs, and the failure rate has been extremely low.

Mine failed way quickly so my personal failure rate would be considered extremely high...Could possibly be that all other bulbs last years but not mine.
I was not happy that John initially made no effort at all sending a replacement bulb. After me talking to Philips directly you guys did the right thing. Not exactly Amazon type service but you replaced the bulb and for that I'm thankful.
I'd not hesitate to buy from you again and I'll post back here, the OEM bulbs and some tools travel with me for the next little while...

Re: Phillips 3157 LED Brake/Turn

Yes - I apologize that you had a hiccup. Unfortunately, there was a miscommunication between us and Philips -- which has been resolved.

Hi Steve-XenonDepot

I just got the these bulbs (not from you guys)....are they, in fact, red!?? I originally got them thinking they were white to be used as DRLs.

Hi,

Ok thanks again....last question, can you recommend a good LED DRL bulb (sold by Xenon Depot) that will work well for a 2011 jeep grand cherokee overland (with HID headlights)?

Yes they are red bulbs as they state "stop and tail" lights. Plus, for brake light applications and LED's, you always want to use a red LED bulb behind a red lens. If you tried a white LED bulb behind a red lens the output would look pinkish. So unfortunately yes, you purchased red bulbs.

Re: Phillips 3157 LED Brake/Turn

dsmoovy: You have to be careful with upgrading the DRL bulb to LED, as I've seen them damage the little jeep reflector within the headlight housings. We do not recommend upgrading the little DRL bulb to LED for that reason.

According to xenondepot, the correct bulb for the DRLs is the H11. I don't think you can use 3157 bulbs, red or not. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I purchased halogen H11s for my DRLs but I haven't installed them yet so I am not 100% certain.
