i thought you were getting valentis.
He would still need the LED flasher relay cause he's changing the front turn signals to LEDs as well.
too bad the revier led corner 2012 doesn't fit.
Yeh that's right. I need to swap out my front turn signals. Down there on the front bumper. Anyone got suggestions of a good bulb?
I can tell you which ones not to buy... I got these from JDM toy and they are not bright enough by a long shot.
Probably some 7w projectors I would think might do the trick...
I'm using these on my 2012:
High Power 7443 7444 Switchback LED Bulbs For Turn Signal Light Bulbs
Noted. That is just as valuable as which ones to buy actually.
Sean, are you planning to hook up the second "element" (white) for these bulbs and if so, how?
I was thinking about it. It would require a change in the bulb socket to accommodate the 2nd pole(which are different between the 10-11 vs. the 2012) & hooking the up to the OEM DRLs.
That's what I thought.... thanks.
I tried the JDM bulbs and they were not even close to matching the brightness of the original incandescents. I just got through installing these and am really happy with the brightness:
Tail Light Brake Light Turn Signal LED Bulbs
I have the 12W version of the Eagle Eye SMT Tower fixture. I couldn't see the benefit in going with the 14W version because the extra wattage is on the end of the bulb, which actually faces out to the side of the car with the way the bulb fixture fits into the housing. Most of the forward-facing light comes from the LEDs on the side of the bulb fixture, which has 3 x 3W LEDs, the same number and wattage for both the 12 and 14 watt bulbs.
so the bulb is white for the parking light, and it will turn to yellow when the signal lights are activated ?
Will I need to buy that relay you guys were talking about and plug it in that blue plug ??
Yes if I had the white part hooked up.
This is the LED flasher relay
Toyota Lexus 8 Pin 12V Electronic LED Flasher Blinker Bulbs Relay Fix
Well I finally got the bloody relay in! You are not kidding about PITA!!!!!!
I couldn't get the OEM one out so I unplugged it and ziptied the new one to a buch of wires up there.
changed the bulbs with the ones from eBay with the projector on the end and now I'm all LED/HID (other than the high beems)
So which bulbs and how is the performance in the daylight hours?
Are u sure ur all LED? U got the bulbs behind the amber reflectors?
Spiderman - These are the bulbs and you can't tell they aren't the OEM bulb. They even look brighter to me.

Even with the front two mounting sidways they still look just as bright.
sfv41901 - yes I remembered the ones behind the amber reflectors and the license plate lights.
Right now I'm working on mounting five smaller t-10 style projector bulbs flush in the doors that let you get to the license plate lights so they light up with the cargo lights.

I just need to figure out how to mount them. I'm testing setups on an old hatch trim peice before I do it for real.
? what do you mean?
So in the daylight, even with the sun shining on them, you can still make them out? The ones I have are completely obliterated by the sun light and can tell if they are on or not.
How long was the shipping time?
