    That is surprising. I had issues with really dim older LEDs from 4-5 years ago, but recent versions can be crazy bright. Like too much. I've noticed they have started making red/amber versions which should help with the wash-out you get when you use a crazy bright white LED in a red or amber housing.

    All of the LEDs I have purchased (SuperBright, JDMAstar, etc) have been great. Noticeable brightness improvement over stock (sometimes too much) and a nice clean look. I'm using these in my gauge clusters and they are perfect. Not too bright, not too dim:

    That was my plan. To use Super Bright LEDs. Red in red lens, amber in amber lens.

    6FCC5F48-3AE0-41C2-A5B4-054B6CCF0D86.jpeg I got my red LED tail lights installed and they look great and are a really good improvement over the originals. I will post pics when I get my car down off of the cribbing and the back of the car farther away from the wall. I liked the taillights so I ordered backup bulbs,side markers and front 1157s. Side markers look great too. But the front amber bulbs from Super Bright LEDs do not fit the sockets. So I called the and asked if they had any problems with the fit of these bulbs and to my surprise he said yes. I asked when they would have the problem fixed and he had no timeline for me. I am shipping them back tomorrow. In the pic you can see the small ground plate I am pointing to. It is hitting the socket before the bulb is deep enough to turn the bulb and engage the pins. I went to my local parts’s store and bought these Dormans over the counter and have the same problem.https://www.dormanproducts.com/p-81025-1157a-smd.aspx

    I can’t really get good pics of the new bulbs showing how good they look but they are a great improvement over incandescant bulbs. Pics look like they are to bright but they make a real nice bright red glow. I am very pleased. LEDs are on the left , incandescent on the right.
