    New license plate LEDs

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    hey guys I just wanted to share this with you guys. these are new license plate housings i got from krautoled.com. i was skeptical at first but i can't say how satisfied i am with. i live in the south so you never know what kind of critters are on the ground when you walk to your car at night but these light up the rear bumper area very well. i know some of you will say they are way too bright but i like them and i haven't had any complaints from police.

    the best part is i have no error codes and there are no flickering of any kind whether the car is on, off, in ACC mode (engine off but car electronics on).

    here's a couple of pix to show them. i don't need to explain which one is the new light lol. the other one is also from krautoled.com, in case anybody is wondering, but it's just a bulb.

    Which one's are they exactly? How much did they cost? There are people on here I'm sure who would benefit from these if the prices are better than those that I bought from HIDconcept. If they perform the same, then why pay more?

    Lol I noticed that too. I thought he bought the car from New York, since he mention he lived in the south. But it say he lives in New York. I don't consider New York the south.

    The LEDs look good though.

    I prefer the HIDconcept lights because it's just the lights without the housing. Do you know if krauto sells the error cancelling lights without the housing?

    Edit: Nevermind. They do. Wish I had known about Krauto before going with HIDConcept for the license plate LEDs and USP Motorsport for the interior kit.

    Same as the ones I got from ECS (Ziza) except no "cancellers" needed. Just as bright IMO for same price. Looks good

    These are very similar (if not identical) to the ones that I got from USP for a little bit more. They worked great and were super bright. KrautoLED wasn't selling them at the time, but I would have bought them from Emil to support a fellow AZ member.

    I have to say.. Many of these LED lamps are way to bright for my taste..
    Bright lighs under the doors and inside the car, fine.. but not for lisence plate in my opinion.

    I quickly changed the "eBay China" LED`s on the left, to OEM LED`s on the right. (4G0 943 021)

    Sounds good! Ill PM you my address

    I just checked and they aren't standard ones after all, they are LED so the previous owner must have changed them.

    Do all I need is the part number and it plugs into factory?
    Oh and I agree some are too bright.

    The OEM LEDs have the correct housing to directing LED lights. They are standard on face lift models here in the US so you should be able to source the parts from any dealer or vendor that sells OEM parts.

    open the housing up and turn the bulb on a 45 inwards, towards the trunk. solved my issue of the massive tail of light.

    if you aren't going for the super bright look then just LEDs would be perfect IMO. i posted a link on those in one of my previous posts on this thread.
