Default welcome to the world of LEDs

you need to get some resistors, im not sure which though. oh, you should also expect them to burn out :P

Generally speaking, their problems outweigh their benefits?

Default most led tails owners would think so

I was lucky enough to get several extra led's from the manufacturer. I ended up going back to stock b/c it just takes more time for me to remove the tails since I have amps, subs, and many more in my trunk. Being unique ain't easy. =P It does look fairly good on some colors though.

Thanx for the 'skinnies'. This is a "skip" upgrade.
