5th Gen. Brake Lights LED bulb upgrade questions.

Recommended Posts

Ive been upgrading all of the lights on my car and wanted to ask

The forum if anyone has upgraded their OEM Tail light/Brake Light Bulbs to

LED? I want brighter lights.


I'm not sure of the size I would need and where to order them from. I made

a mistake for my reverse lights and the lights I purchased were

Not fitting in as snug as they should so I wasted some money.


I'm looking not to waste any more money so if anyone has done this

Modification and could assist me... That would be great!

I've done the upgrade. For your brake and tail lights, you'll need 7443 type bulbs.

I ordered mine from superbrightleds. Others have ordered from vleds.


I got strange dash lights caused by the brake lights, which suggests a grounding problem. I have a post on the 5th gen forum asking for help, but nobody seems to know how to fix this. I swapped the brake LEDs back to stock.


I recommend buying from ebay to save a ton of money. If you get the same problem I do, you wouldn't have lost that much cash. A seller I've had a good experience with is PerAccurate. Free shipping.

what do you mean by strange dash lights? I have upgraded rear tails to led. I cant say that they are brighter but they look good with that instant led on and off, where as there is a residual glow with filament lights.
