Nice dude... I know exactly what you mean about the mean... how the light isn't spread evenly.

I didn't know it was in the lens!! I'm gonna do this mod now for sure!! (Any no more stupid LED festoons burning out!!)

btw... awesome license plate... lol b4 I got my custom plate... I had "5RUG216"... Oo off topic but my friend's neighbor has "5RUG555" on his explorer... and I caught some criminals one time making a getaway in a Camry with plate "5RUG288"

5RUG plates ftw!

me too! The thing i like about these the most is that they will work like OEM on and off as soon as the cars are off. My LED bulbs right now stay on for a few mins after i lock the car. I dont mind this but still OEM is better than anything else

You can get them from pelicanparts or tischer, but the price at my dealer was about the same with tax versus the shipping/handling that you'd need to pay to buy them online, and the dealers will usually have the lights there in 2 days (they tend to always have the connectors in stock).
