I got the new gen that you recommended - :link: 2PCS 12V 24V 60W LED CREE T15 W16W Car Reverse Turn Signal Backup Light bulb | eBay


I haven't test it out yet, will do in a few mins when I am taking the family out for ice cream.

Regarding to indicators - That seem to require more effort to remove and replace them, also the LED have to be yellow right?  Any recommendation? :P


Update:  Oh wow, reverse camera at night is no longer grainy.  I should have done this sooner.

Indicators are here :link: 1 x Canbus BRIGHT AMBER LED INDICATOR BULB No Hyperflash BAU15S PY21W ? Classic Car LEDs

Theyíre extremely bright though no resistors are required with these, crustycottage amd myself are running these and love em :)

I've noticed they now have an option for 750 lumen bulbs which are currently out of stock ( 10 days till re-stocked ), they might be a better option as the 1500 lumen bulbs are super bright.

I too got the LED backup lights recommended by CraigB. I had no trouble replacing them in the current model SR but with the daughters GD SR I can't get the old ones out. The holder goes loose when I turn it  but will not pull out from the light assembly. I did the same on the new car and it simply pulled out.  Is there something different in the 2 models?  By the way CraigB your recommendation for these lights was spot on. They are great!! :happydance: :happydance:

Just have to wiggle them around a bit to get them out on the GD, if they're going to be really stubborn you might have to remove the light to do it.

As Craig stated they plug straight ini and are superbright. other road users will definitely see you indicating so no worries there.  :cool:

Thanks CraigB, I just wasn't sure of how much I could pull on the globe holders. These do really make a difference especially on the reversing camera at night.  Would never thought of changing globes if I hadn't seen it on this forum. Great place for help. Cheers all :) :)

You're welcome :goodjob2:

Yes they make a huge difference, the comparable differences between the two bulb types are so dramatic that car companies should be fitting these for safety standards, plus it clears up the grainy rear camera issues :)

Thought I'd upload a couple of photos to show the quality of the new generation LED reverse lights.

Not that the previous were poor at 500Lm but the new one's are a little brighter at 600Lm with fewer LED chips, they also make use of reflection technology which the last generation didn't have.

Nice and bright


Clarity of revision cam which also shows how the reverse lights illuminate the houses across the road.

Impressive.  Wish the PD camera was that clear at night. Even with the LED reverse light, still quite grainy.  :Pout:

Mine are the earlier ones I think. It helped a lot, but still quite grainy. Nothing like the picture Craig posted.  :cool:

I put the globes CraigB  suggested into both my daughters GD and my PD and the camera in both is like his picture shows, not grainy. I live in a retirement village and the lights light up the house across the road. Really you cannot compare to old globes. These should be standard. Excuse the pun but the led globes are brilliant.
