I do not quite understand the fascination with LED everything.

That said, you did a great job OP. Thanks for taking the time to post up the results.

Do you have a writeup available anywhere for those interested in performing this modification? Or did you conduct your installation based on an already existent writeup?

I can never find LED bulbs bright enough to use during daylight. They are always so dim compared to regular bulbs. I like the instant on/off though. Got some links to your LED bulbs?

I agree. Find it strange that some will spend crazy money on LED upgrades when the halogens really look fine. I did the halogen silver coated replacement bulbs for the front turn signals because I did not like how the yellow looked in the housing. Everyone has different taste but all the error codes and random flashes would be worse than the halogen look to me.

You need to code the car to turn off the bulb checks, otherwise it will flash every minute randomly. It will also flash right when you turn the car on. Check the coding thread for details.

I also change the turn signals with the silver coated and the car looks great.
