yeah i have, you need to buy the 14 volt version.. there is a VW website some where that sells ones that fit our car with resistors built in, and runs on 14 volts. Ill try to locate it for you.

Here is my setup. It is far from a "drop in" solution, but it has outlasted any of the LED bulbs that I have tried. I have had these working for about 1 year now. It can be done. Before this, I could not get a commercially available LED bulb to last more than a month in this application.





The bar of light at the bottom is my reverse light.

Note the retro plates. :)

got these from ebay... didnt last very long.
got another pair, same.
the bad thing about these LEDs are if one of the leds burns out, it causes a strobe-like flashing with the whole bulb.
these had 6 LEDs in each bulb.

still looking for a place/site to order some decent bulbs from.

ive had mine from them for well over 6 months and counting and they work great, had to adjust the contacts that hold the light cuz they were a little loose but once i did they were great!
