Re: What's the verdict on LED headlight bulbs vs. HID?

Those look like the same model I use, and I don't have any interference issues.

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

I can tell you from first hand experience...writeups are fun to do, but sometimes when you start putting words down...you don't have a pic to go with something critical. :)
