Just got these in the mail, and did a mock up install. i don't have T-taps so i couldn't install the resistors yet
first photo on the right side is the new LED bulbs, on the Left side is Stock



Stock bulb up close -




Diode Dynamics LED Amber bulb -


These bulbs are MUCH brighter than Stock. I can't wait to install them fully and snap better pics!

Will do! Just need a test vehicle, but we're in the middle of a move so it may be longer than I'd like.

Hi, if this is the case then please explain the following statement included in the description of your Fog Light LED Bulbs:

These bulbs are made up of a quality plastic connector to slide right into the plug, as well as high durability terminals. A load resistor is embedded to prevent blowing the LEDs from voltage surge, and a diode is implanted to protect the LEDs from reverse polarity. The LED is wired for 12v operation, the kind found on all modern vehicles.

What's the difference in the embedded/integrated resistor found in your Fog Light LED Bulbs?

I am also interested in the Switchbacks for the RS. However, I'd prefer a truly plug-n-play solution that does not require additional splicing for a resistor.

Sorry, I can see how that's confusing- LEDs do not run at 12 volts... usually they are designed for operation on 2.5-3.5 volts. You need to use a resistor to regulate the voltage going to the LED itself, so they will work as a 12v bulb.

That resistor, however, is very small. It is not the same type needed to provide extra load to mimic the factory bulb... a resistor of that size would be much too large to fit in the bulb itself, which is why it cannot be integrated into the bulb. But you NEED the small resistor so that the LED chips will run on 12 volts.

Ours are designed for operation up to 18 volts, to prevent any failure with voltage surge which can happen in cheaper bulbs, which are often designed for use up to 14 volts.

Thanks,
Nick C

Ok, thanks for the clarification.

Good News!

One of your fellow Camaro5 members has agreed to stop by and let us install switchbacks in his ZL1

I will have updates soon about switchbacks for RS and ZL1 models!

Thanks for your patience everyone!
