Where the heck did you locate the bulky stock bulb mount which is now outside the light housing and connects to the VLED bulb adapter plug? Did you stuff it down in the bumper somehow?

Would you be able to post a video showing the break lights turning on/off?

Thank you!

Yes that's exactly what I did actually. There is a ton of room just below the tail light housing behind the bumper. That's actually the only place it would fit. Then so they didn't just wobble around I wrapped the parts in a insulation type material and secured it to the body in there.

After having these bulbs now for a couple weeks I am still 100% satisfied and everytime I am behind a WK2 with stock bulbs it looks so lame. Then I walk up to mine and hit unlock and the color and output and instant on/off look so good. Plus they match the stock LED third brake light perfectly.

Redlands, I'll try and get a video here soon.

That is correct.

Dont forget to get the V3 load resistors to go with them. Even though the actual exterior bulbs will not hyper flash, the dash turn indicator will, and you will also get a bulb out warning on your EVIC everytime you start the car as well.
VLED's new Gen 2.5 load resistors are nice. They are small and can easily mount pretty much anywhere with double sides tape, and they just plug into the extra plug coming out of the bulb module.

These bulbs are still on backorder. Anyone know how long it's taking to get them back in stock and shipped after your order is placed?

Yeah unfortunately with these Tritons you pretty much have to order them and forget about them. I got my bulbs in about a month, then another couple weeks for the V3 resistors to arrive. So all in all it was atleast a months and a half from the time of order to when I had everything :-(


I will try to post up some videos later if I can make a good one.

Re: WK2 rear brake turn LED's installed. VLED V3 Triton with pics

Here are a couple videos I made. This first video was during installation so I was able to compare both original bulb and the LED. The second video is full LED. Unfortunately it seems the camera doesnt pick up the instant on/off of the LED as good as I wanted it to, but atleast you get some idea. Regardless of what you see in the camera they are brighter, deeper red, and instant on/off compared to stock.

Stock left, LED right:


New video I made this evening. Full LED's installed:
