superlumination tends to have better products, velocity offeres cheaper versions, but are not always exactly the same.

the only led's I'v ever had problems with seem to be in guage clusters of my jeeps, my old 194's were giving me some trouble, and now 1 of my #74's acts up sometimes when first turn on.

this has enver happened in the millenia however, I can only assume because in the jeeps it receives the extra heat from the heating vents not fully sealed next to it that this is the case.

I'm still searching for a true 921 tower

MTS, if you are wanting indicator bulbs, be sure to get 1156 not 1157, otherwise modification would be required.

Don, Autoluminations would be a bit better due to using flux-type LEDs, but at more than double the price I think the Velocity is a much better buy. I too await Warden getting on board shifty.gif

Halogen (ultra rice?) at 50W per? Are you mad? They will look like the true Autobahn tail lamps that DO not come on cars in North America.

and I won't have cruise control issues either...

They are coated blue to make the white... as halogen are always yellow incandescents... but like my 100W Streetglow fogs.... maybe will light up the back of the car for all the idiots to see so they do not rear end me... they are 50W halogens.

no, you coat them blue and there rice, period, and they will not shine white, they will shine less "yellow" as YOU call it, and be cloudy blue.

if you want a white light then put in some white led's

MTS, what you need to understand is that putting blue-coated bulbs in tail lights is like shining a yellowy incandescent filament through a blue filter, then through the red filter of the tail lamps. The end result would probably be no more powerful than a stock bulb, but with a hell of a lot of heat!

For reversing lights there would be no such problems, as it would be shining through a clear tail light lense.

Stock Eunos fogs (including the 500 even) with projectors look yellow regardless of how blue-tinted the bulb is - unless it is HID. I've done experiments with the bluest bulb I have next to a stocky, and they look identical!
