UPDATE!!!!!!

I just replaced the cheap ebay bulb that was flickering (started this yr- bought the bulb in 09) The prev version was 6 white LEDs and it looked good while it lasted...3 of the six would flicker and then go out and then come back on for awhile and then flicker again...this is with or without the car being started and I checked to make sure the bulb was seated ok etc.

I just bought the Lethal performance ones (set of 2- though you only need one) and they are great...no flicker...and seem brighter then prev bulb that I was happy with....took 2 mins to install and I have a spare..should last for 50-80K hours.

I hope so as the prev one only lasted maybe 300 hrs... (not the lethal one but the ebay one) I will provide pics if you want and I must say I am thoroughly impressed! thx Lethal!!!!!!

a word of advice, keep it white. Them boys in blue don't like to see blues reds and purples there.

The reverse lights will need resistors for most LEDs you use. But then some mustang don't which is odd. I installed the high power reverse lights and they are super bright White High Power LED Reverse Lights I didn't have to use any resistors either.

This site has some great led stuff too.
