Default Today I changed some bulbs for LED's

Some time ago I changed all the bulbs in my Peugeot Sport rearlights for chrome bulbs.
Everything was OK with those bulbs but I wanted to try the LED versions.
So today I changed some bulbs for LED's, I only changed the combination bulbs on top.
It's a 21/5W 24-LED bulb now - 18 LED's on top and 6 LED's to the side.

Here is a close-up picture of the new LED bulbs



And this is a picture of the test set-up



And here are a few pictures of the new LED lights in use in the dark.

LED's left normal light



LED's left brakelight



LED's right normal light



LED's right brakelight

lower current draw, means less strain on battery, almost no heat, light up faster (response time), however need to find very good quality ones not those guniang ones that got connector or resistor problems

The pictures are all made with the LED's.
But I can tell you that the LED's give better light that the chrome bulbs.
The light of the LED's is more like the original setup.

I upgraded mine to 3500k light I think. Brighter but not LED.

LED generate almost no heat, won't burn your plastic cover and consumer lesser energy i.e. battary not so stress and maybe safe abit more petrol.

More imptly, it looks nicer. Makes any ride looks younger. =)
