    $6-8 per lamp is a great price. As long as the quality is good. I had another set from APC, they were junk. The ones with the 1157 base fell apart.

    Question Re: LED brake lights

    From my calculations it comes to about $290 for all eight, four red & four amber.

    That does not include tax or shipping.

    Furthermore, does the amber work with the flasher?
    Anyone use a LEDtronics unit for the amber flasher all around, and do they work?
    One would (I assume) as the other one (on the same side) would be enough load if the flasher needs to see a load.

    Bare mimimum I would do the brake lights.

    I sent email to LEDtronics on quantity buy.
    Will post results when they get back to me.

    Well, I couldn't wait for the group buy. My order was shipped today. I only got the 2 brake LED's to see how I like them.

    Re: LED brake lights

    I was thinking I will swap out the amber lamp for red LED.
    The yellow turn sig is a euro thing! Could also parallel the brake & turn for double tails ..?

    Re: LED brake lights

    Now you just need to find lighted V Emblems for the sides to complete the euro look. Come to think of it, that would look really cool. Lit V emblems that also act as side marker lights.

    Re: LED brake lights

    Here is the price break for the LEDtronics bulb replacements

    Part #3157 (red or amber)

    10) $29.25@
    50) $26.00@
    100) $22.75@

    Tax (if any) and shipping are seperate. If I coordinate this, I will use US mail so price for shipping (in US) will be same for all.

    For any real savings I would probably go for 50.
    Unless we get some interest in some other threads that use the same part #, then 100.
    Anyway, let me know who is interested.
    I figure we can get a final count on interest within a week(?).

    Re: LED brake lights

    Let's start a new thread. Please list how many LED's are needed to complete the rear tail lights. Then we just need to keep track of the posters.

    Re: LED brake lights

    2 red for brakelight (bare minimum)

    2 red for other rear lights

    2 amber rear lights.

    2 amber for front

    Has anyone put all leds around for the amber and if so does the turn signal work?

    I'm in for all 8 if we can get it @ 22.75...otherwise I'll just get the 6 tail bulbs. I think we should have an admin put a sticky on the main CTS forum for the group buy. It would get a lot more publicity and hopefully more bulbs ordered too.

    Re: LED brake lights

    Some other thoughts...

    you can also swap out the following for LEDs (if you so desired) -

    White Reverse (backup) lights
    White Lic Plate lights
    Those funky little lights in your headlight assembly that really should have been a white LED form the get go.

    I like the idea of replacing the little triangle lights but they are a PITA to access because you have to take off the front bumper. Anyway, that makes 10 bulbs! Now we just need to get 10 people to buy all ten bulbs.

    PS. I'm still on the 8 or 6 bulb plan
