Default LED Front Turn Signal & Reverse Lights

I know there a ton of threads already on this but the links to those are fairly old. With new technology every year I'd like to know what the best LED bulbs are now (2017-2018). I'd like the brightest possible. I don't care if they're error free or not because I've coded this out.

Fronts: LED Amber

Reverse: LED White (NOT BLUE or PURPLE)

Pictures, links and recommendations would be appreciated!

I'd be eager to learn as well. LED with no codes or issues.

No codes is easy, just code off the errors.

Subscribed. I picked up some LED's for the front turn signals off fleabay before, but they have this really annoying cold start flicker. (not talking about the bulb presence tests, I've coded those out).

Philips xtreme vision. Hands down best LEDs on the market. They’re designed with the location of the filament in halogen bulbs in mind. So you get the best light output when placing them in a reflective housing. Different from other brands when they just add a million LEDs but useless when not aimed or reflecting properly.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Philips-X-t...-/222642449873

They used to be much cheaper and easier to find. Not sure what happened.


Edit: haven’t tried this personally but look promising as well for cheaper:

I have the Weisslicht LED side markers. They are a tad pricey but look really nice.
