Hey guys--just a quick PSA for those of you who like to keep your lights up to date:
The following white 3157s are impressive--equal to or brighter than 35W HIDs. Despite the projection lens, there are no significant hot spots in the reverse lenses. I can read a textbook in the light of my reverse lights at 30 yards. Not only are these the brightest 3157 units that I've ever played with (and I've wasted a lot of money on LEDs), they're only $10:
The LEDs are so bright that they're roughly equal to the direct sunlight shining on the side of the white condo to the left. Note: tail lights are triple 25W OSRAM SMD LEDs.
The white fence is 15 yards distant. The silver Corolla is 28 yards distant. I stopped casting a shadow at 75 yards (despite interference from the overhead lights), which is about 3/4 of the way to the far condo building.
Standing at 50 yards from the car. In real life, I was not liking looking directly at the reverse lights from this range.
