I've used ALL kinds of reverse lamps. Halogen and LED. The best reverse lights I've used are my current CREE LED 5W's like in the ebay link above.

That auction has ended. Is this the same?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-2x-1156-...266c81&vxp=mtr

Any pics with them on? They are listed as 6000K, which sounds a little bluer than I'd prefer (4300-5000K would be ideal).

these are supposed to be white despite the rating. good review from an experienced user
His review is good - glad to know they are much lower than 8000K. Doesn't seem "proper" if their color description is that far off. Also wonder if the 9w has anything to do with the 1 minute of use. Though I am not usually in reverse for that long ...

For the EE5s, are you guys going spot or astigamatic? Is this the right bulb - 1156 super white 5w?

I am very interested to know which one to choose from those CREE as well, I've held on getting them since I am about to go to China so I might try to find them there

I think I will go with the EE5s. So, bump again - spot or astigmatic? I'm guessing the latter but would like confirmation before ordering.
