Reverse LEDs - so many options- what do you recommend?

So I was looking on vleds last night for reverse led bulbs. There are quite a few different options. anyone have experience with any of them? Are the $50 LEDs really worth it compared to the $10 ones? Has anyone used any of their high power LEDs?

Re: Reverse LEDs - so many options- what do you recommend?

going to quote LipchitzWrath on this one...

"""And here are the reverse light bulbs: http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED/P...26829-1-2.html

The above reverse light bulbs look like the best you can get. They ain't cheap tho. You could use any 921 bulb you want to. These aren't as bright, but they're only $10:http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED/P...81084-1-2.html

And here are some mid-level ones. I have no idea about the brightness: http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED/B...35716-1-2.html """

He knows his stuff... i would say those first ones are the way to go. They are pricey, but they are the best.

Re: Reverse LEDs - so many options- what do you recommend?

i got some from autolumination the have like 8 or 9 leds the fire out the back. I tried the cylinder kind but they dont project the light out of the housing.

I back into my garage so i need a decent reverse bulb.

Actually you need a 921 bulb not 3157 for your year.

Are these LED reverse bulbs plug and play....or do you need to play around with the wiring (Resistor)
