    Default New LED Tail Lights - With Video Comparison!

    So I did the LED tail light conversion using the Putco bulbs suggested by user "JPierce" (Thanks!!) They work GREAT! No hyper flashing, no errors, nothing! Just that good old instant on/off effect. I love it.

    I haven't been able to dig up any video of a comparison between LED and stock for our cars, so I made one and hopefully anyone on the fence can benefit from it.

    Bulbs: http://www.amazon.com/Putco-247440R-.../dp/B009FTLPT2

    Putco 2474400-360 (Make sure to get RED as if you get white, your tails could look pink).

    Video of the bulb comparison:

    I noticed in the video that one of your lights comes on a fraction before the other.

    That's the point of the video, haha. The bulb on the left is LED, the bulb on the right is stock. The video shows the difference between the two. I installed the LED bulb in the right side after I took the video, and now they blink at the same time.

    I used the link and amazon says it does not fit 2015! Can you verify the part number please? Also did you have to make any mods to the bulb or the connector? Thanks.

    He's right. I did the search last week, and was also told they wouldn't fit. I believe that they actually do, but wondered if any modification was needed.

    They WILL fit, it told me the same thing, im guessing its saying that because its an LED bulb and not a tradition replacement halogen. I promise these do work and they work great, especially if you have tinted taillights like I do

    Yep, it says they won't fit but they absolutely will. No modification at all. Just pull out the stock light, insert LED, put the tail light back on and you're good to go.
