OK .. so I've decided to order the below LED globes [for the Hyundai and the Mazda] to "R&D" them to see if they're okay.


I agree with @CraigB that they should have LED's in every which way possible to get the best result .. They're cheap, hopefully there's no flicker..

They look the same as the first classic car led indicators I used, they’re good but extremely bright which is why I changed to the second generation bulbs at 700lm.

The combination DRL/blinker 'switchback' set that I got for Firty are like these:

From the set of images included on the site you can see that they cover very well both side illumination (three facets) and head-on, so anything of that style will work really well - it does for me! :victory:

@DeeTee @Blazorax Did you guys or anyone else ever find out if the interior bulbs near the rear handles can be replaced? Or @Dazzler did that FB guy ever find out if they are permanent yellow?

Mmmm looks like maybe it's not straight forward since they are similar to this....

I'll ask him through Messenger. By coincidence I need to ask him something else. One side of my DRL's on the SR has stopped working and I wondered if it could just be a globe or a fuse before I take it in for a warranty fix. He is a Hyundai Master Technician.

Cool thanks. My local dealer had a look into it for me and just got back to me... he said this - "Looks like a led bulb soldered into the board."

Tim hasn't had a chance to confirm (he forgot) but that was definitely what he suspected.

LEDs can be de-soldered and replaced if the specs are known.

Thanks. Yeah I could do it but don't want to void warranty at this stage....
