Im In the prosess of putting in smd leds throughout the car to save a bit of juice.

The indicators, front parkers, numberplate lights are easy they are either on or off.

where as the brake light is also driving light which as you know when you have your headlights on the parkers light up slightly then once you put ur foot on the brakes they get brighter which is due to dual filament globes.

My dilema is what is the go with smd leds that have a bunch of small leds on them such
as on of these?



Does the whole thing light up? Does half light up? Does it all light up dull then when the brake is applied it lights up to its full potential?

Someone please enlighten me

Cheers charlie

I would imagine half would light around the 'globe' and then the rest plus the ones on the end would fire up to give ya brakes.
SMD LED's are great! they are bulk bright for the size, they will work well!

Ok basically, this is my BA15 style lamp, i have many other available and in stock, including wedge fitting from T10 to T20





Prices vary, but for this type in Xenon white(matches 6000k) is about $37 a pair, yer there a little dearer, but you get what you pay for


I can take a pic of some fitted if you want, i have just installed some in my Adventra

Interesting. Might have to save some pennies and get some. Really want to upgrade all the lighting on the GU to LED (excepting head lights obviously) do you do a "package" to chance all the lighting on a GU?
