Buy the correct ones they are brighter and give off less heat

Edited from my build thread.....

Ok, after debating the merits of LED lights the decision was made, LED lights all around.

Lets start with tail lights , signal lights , license plate lights and back up lights.
Dash lights have also been purchased and will be changed over on a later post.

Well, here they are LED 1157`s.


They are red and look better in person than in the photo.
Was using the brighter 1158`s but they made the tail light look pink.


Now the turn signals are impressive.
The bulb looks weird but they are hidden behind the lens.
They are white in park mode...


and they are Amber in turn signal mode...
( they are more amber in person)


Now of course it wasn't that easy.
I broke one of my turn signal pigtails and the brake lights were destroyed as the sockets had corroded to the bulb.
( and they are only two years old.)
Also had to change the flasher to an electronic version.

Part numbers...
superbrightleds.com
2. 1157-R3W-G: Red ( Tail lights )
2. 67-CW12-G: Cool White ( License plate lights , 2 for a wagon )

2. 1157-AW60-SA: Amber White ( Front parking light, white for park ,amber for signal )

And for the dash
9. BA9S-CWHP5: Cool White ( dash lights )
2. BA9S-GHP5: Green ( signal lights )
3. BA9S-RHP5: Red ( oil, generator and high beam ) ( almost went blue for high beam )
2. 1156-CW3W-G: Cool White

Looks nice! Always use dielectric grease in the sockets to keep them from corroding, I always do and it works great.

"Dielectric grease is electrically insulating and does not break down when high voltage is applied. It is often applied to electrical connectors, particularly those containing rubber gaskets, as a means of lubricating and sealing rubber portions of the connector without arcing."

Iím interested in replacing my tail light/brake light bulbs and front turn signal/parking light bulbs with LEDs like John has pictured above. Will probably use red for tails and just amber or white for front (I have a pair of amber and clear lenses to use in front....doesnít have to be a bulb that does both like Johnís)
Does the flasher have to be replaced? If so, where is it located and what part number would that be?
I have a Ď56 210 four door sedan.
