Question Bought the wrong V-LEDS for my WK reverse lights

Got all geeked out after seeing 2for3's LED mod on his reverse lights and I bought the LEDs below but the base is way too big to fit in the stock reverse light female adapter. Do I need to change the adapter or get different lights? The stock reverse bulbs are so damn small.

Re: Bought the wrong V-LEDS for my WK reverse lights

would these give enough light output for reverse bulbs? they're a heck of a lot cheaper...i suppose it might be a "you get what you pay for" type thing but just thought i would throw it out there...

edit - forgot the link oops!

no, just based on the fact there are only 4 LEDs in that one.

bought the 921's yesterday and returned the 3157s

Re: Bought the wrong V-LEDS for my WK reverse lights

Has anyone ever gotten new adapter or shaved the bulbs? I'm facing the same issue on my WK2 front turn signals. I can't return these expensive switchback bulbs because I already tried a quick shave on the curb.
