Has Anyone Bought The 2008-2011 EBAY LED Tail Lights

Man, has anyone purchased the aftermarket LED tail lights for our year cars?? I paid $170.00 for a set 3 months ago, and tonight i got pulled over by a cop. He informed me that the reason he pulled me over was because my right rear tail light was out. I said WHAT???? so i got out and looked at it, and there was only 2 LED lights still lit out of the 73 that are supposed to be on. But my brake lights are all lit and working. I thought these LED lights are supposed to be/last far more longer than conventional bulbs. That's why i paid so much for them. So my question is, so i can decide weather to buy another set or go back to the stock tail lights, has anyone bought these lights and if so how long have they lasted on your car? Please let me know because i have to make a decition quickly as i'm driving around with no right tail light. Thanks

Fisher is correct. If you read up on led lights, there are different quality of led lamps and they are effected greatly by a number of things like voltage, temperature, amperage. If the manufacturer builds the lights and over drives them, pushes the max voltage and/or amperage, their life is greatly diminished. If they are soldered to the pc board, you may be able to find a friend to rebuild them with a higher quality led. Good Luck.
