Brightest LED side marker Light

Post by azureblue »

After another close call last night, I want to put the brightest possible LED (fender) side marker lights in my 2002 V. Recommendations? Thanks

These are in the 08 C30 T5 front lens. They reside in the high beam compartment of the headlight assembly but we use the parking light setting and they are bright during the day and night. LED's can be bright but not project. These do not project.

Fender side marker lights meaning assembly. LED bulbs are what will light them up. Most are T10's.

I would recommend buying a pack of LED light strip from eBay, they are 12" (11.81") 5050 SMD. You will need to rewire the side marker lights to connect them. I used 3528 SMD strips on my 01 v70 base when I had it. But the 5050 SMD chip is about 3x brighter. Example of rewired SML w/ 3528 strips:

Plans for The Storm: universal enclosed trailer with fusebox and unique climate control system.
