Re: OK OK OK you were right, EBAY LEDS are GARBAGE **PIX**

I've been replacing every bulb possible with LEDs for years. I've always bought my stuff from E-Bay and I've learned what to look for. E-Bay has some junk, but they also carry some good products as well, for way cheaper than you can buy from most stores.

We had a vendor that was selling bulbs for $15 a piece and my buddy bought some. I found a bulb on E-bay that looked exactly like it for less than $2. I purchased some of them. We compared the bulbs once they arrived and they were exactly the same bulb. No doubt they were made at the same place, same product, but one was WAY more expensive.

That being said, the VLEDs seem to be the shit and are superior to the E-Bay stuff, but watch where you buy and where stuff is made, you may end up paying more for the same old "E-Bay crap" at some places.

I've been lucky so far, but if I have any issues, I will be using VLEDs for replacements in the future.

I'd rather pay the extra money from VLEDs or Xenondepot and buy quality lights for a quality price.

You get what you pay for, why buy crap stuff when you know VLEDs and Xenondepot work.

Just my 2 cents

BUY FROM A VENDOR!!!

Re: OK OK OK you were right, EBAY LEDS are GARBAGE **PIX**

My order from V-Led's shipped today, I saw a video from them on youtube of "dual color LED switch backs". They go in the turns and the fog lights, when you hit your turn signal the fogs turn amber and flash. SICK I have to have it, I emailed them and its not available yet, and when it is you have to use a switchback bulb in your fogs so I will lose light output, but it might be cool for summer use and just put the hid 3k fogs back for winter....

My eBay LED license plate bulbs have been working great for about a year now; at least I think.

Before you go laughing at someone for something they say, do your research. They are about to release this, and yes you use switchbacks in the turns AND fogs to get this effect. Email v-led's. I talked to they yesterday.
