Giant update - if you turn the lights on AFTER the car is running it seems to work much better.

I tossed in some LED reverse lights and 3W CREE LED license plate lights... HOLY BRIGHT!



I'm replacing all of my HID stuff as I burned out a bulb from flashing the lights on and off trying to get them to work. Replaced the bulbs, same issue, bought a relay kit and now I'm after some new ballasts.

I'm also rocking switchbacks up front - love em.


Already had a ballast die though - ordering replacements today.

That looks awesome! Yeah, I have been running some 35 Watt 6000ks for a year now. My driver side will misfire if I dont wait to turn it on until after the car is on as well! How did you install the switchbacks? Where'd you get those License plate LED's and (sorry last question) and the reverse LED light? I bought some 14v License plate LED's and they would flicker or turn off and on sometimes. I also had a set of my eagle eye led's turn off and on so I just ordered some new inverters.
