Are automotive LED brake bulbs as bright as standard incandescent bulbs?
Our full size 13x5730 LED bulbs equal the brightness of a standard 21w bulb, they're more outstanding at night however than a normal incandescent which will to look orange compared to it.
Should red LED brake lights be used behind red lenses (and amber behind amber)?
Our most often asked question - Yes - Red light will travel through a Red lens without any filtering whatsoever making it very rich in colour.
White light has to travel through a RED lens and be filtered and if the originating White light wasn't a pure White (for example incandescent bulbs with a yellow tinge) you would expect to see a distortion of the pure RED.
The richness of the RED color is particularly noticed at night - you will find that your RED LED brake lights will make the other types look orange.
Of course clear lenses look excellent on your car and RED LED enables you to use them without having to use painted incandescent bulbs
How do I know what fits my car?
Basically all we need to know is the size and description of the base and the length/width of the bulb - we'll be able to go from there.
Why do I have a bulb out light in my dash after installing LED bulbs?
European and newer model cars will often show a bulb out light as an LED bulb only draws between 1 and 5 watts.
Your original factory issue incandescent bulbs draw at least 20 watts.
Your car's electrical system interprets this lack of load as a bulb out.
