the only problem is, in the rear, you will get a message on screen saying "tail light out" because of the low voltage. but they look so great, i'll deal with it.

You should splice in some load resistors to get rid of the warning light.

nah. too much hassle. you only get the warning when you start the car & the info window boots up the info. it doesn't stay on the screen. so no biggie. looks so much cooler than stock bulbs.

Ah... that's good to know. I figured it would stay on all of the time.

Could you provide a link to all the bulbs you replaced? I'm really intersted in doing this to my car.

I'm glad our cars tell us when the bulbs are out (except issues with HID's but oh well I don't mind). I was driving behind a mid 2000's Dodge Caravan today with absolutely NO BRAKELIGHTS. I am like, wtf you idiot, go to walmart and fix that crap. haha. People are so blind.
