LED Yellow Turn Signal Bulb Recommendation

Hi All

I had the interior of my headlight blackened out so I need to replace the turn signal bulb with a brighter yellow LED bulb. Any recommendations?

Thanks

I have Lasfit turn signal bulbs and theyíre bright as hell. Almost too bright in the rear as Iíve considered looking for something a little less blinding.

Lol lasfit bulbs made me a fan of the brand. I had switchbacks in the front and amber turn signals in the rear. As someone mentioned bright as shit, but believe it or not itís not so bright itís a safety issue. Iíve since gone to morimotos front and rear, but if I ever go back to oem housing, Iím putting those bulbs back in.

Thanks Iíll check them out.

I agree on the rear lights. Some vehicle the rear LED bulb are so bright at night they are blinding. They donít need to be that bright.

I had the LASFIT's front and rear, but wasn't happy about the hyperflash that starts after about a minute - despite the claim that they don't. They also got real hot. (Which would explain the hyperflash.)

I recently tried the VLEDs V6 Extreme's in the rear. Surprisingly, they're not any brighter than the LASFIT's, but I'm hoping the remote plug-in resistors keep the heat to a minimum. I have yet to test the ability to resist hyperflash and having LASFITs still in the front may still cause it.

You will be fine. Lasfit bread and butter is their bulbs. I’ve traveled in a lot of convoys where everyone was running their bulbs and not once I thought they were blinding. They are bright enough to be really noticeable and only annoying if you are standing right next to it when flashing. There are definitely more annoying led like those found on new oem bmw

Iím curious now. Are you saying the front Lasfit bulbs may be causing hyper flashing in the back? Also when it begins hyper flashing, does blinker on the instrument gage hyper flash too?

Does anyone see a problem with mixing bulb brands or it really doesnít matter.

Heat is a concern for me. Since my reflectors inside my headlights are painted I want to avoid excessive heat. It could potentially effect the paint job. Has anyone else experience hyper flashing or heat problems with any of the LED bulbs?

I had the older version that required resistors but I believe lasfit has fixed that issue a long time ago. Nobody that I know has that problem currently but not sure if they ever had a problem where they wired in resistors.

In the past if u ran led in both front and rear you had to run resistors to compensate for drop in voltage.

I was looking at these. Amazon.com: JDM ASTAR Extremely Bright PX Chips 7440 7441 7443 7444 Amber Yellow Turn Signal LED Bulbs : Automotive

It has fewer light emitters on the side which I hope reduces heat but also has a light projector in the front. Has anyone tried these or this brand?

I have resistors in my tail light so they would compensate for that and not trigger a error code to the computer. Nice to know they have overcome that problem.

According to LASFIT, the bulbs have built-in protection when they get warm. What it does (apparently) is shorten the duration of the "on" time. So, what you get is not a true rapid flash that is made up of shortened on and off pulses. Instead, you get a shortened "on" pulse followed by a standard "off" pulse if that makes sense. You can see it when you're behind someone and it kicks in. The dashboard indicator looks (and sounds) normal, but the "on" pulse outside is definitely shorter than the one on the dash.

Will the front LASFITs in my T4R kicking into this protection mode cause my rear VLED V6 Extremes to do the same thing? I pretty much doubt it, but I haven't had time to test it. Remember, classic hyperflash is caused by lack of resistance in the bulb, but controlled / triggered by the flasher unit or LCM.

Believe it or not, the biggest problem I have with the LASFIT bulbs is their sheer size. They barely fit in the opening in the reflector housing, so when you install or remove them, accidentally popping a bulb out of the socket and dropping it into the housing is a legitimate possibility. I had a serious pucker moment when I was removing one of the rear LASFITs when it caught on the edge of the housing and partially dislodged the bulb. Luckly, I had a small 90-degree pick within arm's reach, and I used that to hold the bulb in place as it came out the last little bit.
