Who was it that had the Ebay LED taillights?

Anyone remember who it was that had those? I'm on the fence about buying a set. I know they had mentioned that the ECU would recognize them as if a tail light was blown so the blinkers would be twice as fast. Ever find out if there was a fix to that? Also, I was just curious to see how well they were holding up (all LEDs still working and if they were resealed properly to prevent water from leaking in). I'm 95% sure they ship these in from China so I'm a little hesitant about the quality.

they have the resistors built in so you do not have to worry about fast blinking. no water leaks and they also are working perfectly fine, been about a year so far..

Sounds good. I'll order a set now then lol. Thanks. I would assume the LEDs are a bit more visible with the tint than regular bulbs would be with the tint.

I would assume so. They are all located somewhere in California. And with my experience through ebay, alot of automotive shit that ships from California is usually something that they get from some Chinese vendor.

So is the install of these simply just bolting them on and plugging them in, or is there re-wiring required? Anybody have any pictures of how they compare "brightness-wise" to the stock?
