That looks good but a flank style bulb would have served you better so you can achieve maximum light that is focused in one direction.

Good choice! I have V-Leds in 5k as well! I first purchased the 6k but they were too blue for my taste.

I did look at those but I did not know if it would toss a CANBUS error so to be safe I went with one that said CAN PROOF! lol

Huge improvement. over stock I might be converting the Reverse Lights to the 8w Leds once I can figure out if the reverse lights are CANBUS monitored or not.

Since the reverse ones are like $40-$50 a pair I don't need $100 in lights I can't use.

The manual says reverse lights are 921 or 7044 Basically you need to pull your old bulb and read what it says on it lol.
