Led Tail/brake Bulbs - Opinions/advice Needed

11 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm considering changing the tail/brake bulbs and wouldn't mind some opinions and advice about whether it's worth it and if so what to go for.

So far my current Philips Vision Plus filament bulbs take some beating if I'm honest, they're brighter and quicker than Ford's stock bulbs and that's my main concern/criteria. I have tried a variety of LED, some were no better, many worse, several just went pop in a little cloud of smelly cheap eBay/Chinese manufactured smoke.

However, I've spotted these but would appreciate your feedback. Would also like to hear from folks who have found any LED brake/tail bulbs that are an improvement over the stock Ford ones, especially brightness when braking.

Okay, get a room! Anyway, they do look good. What's the view on the spider bulbs. How do they compare with the stock Ford bulbs for brightness? Also, white or red LED's? I'm guessing white could look too pink.

These look really good and effective, i bet they look good from the back.

Bright LED's, tried getting some for my car, but i cant find the right bulb to fit it.

The ones i previously brought but would'nt work with side and brake on, only worked as one loom which was very strange.

Anyone that can help?

I take it those aren't the 42 LEDs you recently told me you have for your number plate!? Or is it just the photo - looks like the plate is hardly lit up at all :s
