Request - 5000k LED Switchback Turn Signals

All the switchback turn signals I've seen are 6000k and I would like some 5000k to match my HIDs. Is anyone else interested in this?

I know the second option is pointless, but it's easier to keep track of interested people through polling numbers.

i noticed my "6000k" switchbacks from diode dynamics actually seem a bit more white than my 6000k HID's. They appear to be closer to 5000k. The actual color could vary though depending where you get the leds and the HID's from. I would say my leds are pretty damn close to 5000k though.

Mine are certainly more bluish than my 5000k retrofit from TRS.

Mine are white so I ended up switching to 5k hid bulbs.

www.vleds.com makes a 5K switchback. I have them on mine.

I did their 5k set on all the bulbs in the car. NO BLUE at all!

I think they are currently out of stock on the "regular" switchbacks. I paid $35.99 for mine I think.

Yep. They're out of stock, told them they might have 10+ potential customers once they do.
