Now that I've tinted the reverse lights I do want to upgrade the bulbs. Thanks for the idea on the Silverstars.

Is it difficult to get to the reverse lights without lifting the car?

Just and FYI, it would probably be best to check out what the vendors in this forum have as you can easily message them or look at their classifieds post as to what it will look like on the car. Also I am sure they would be more than helpful if you ask them if they had any reverse LED lights....not to mention group buys and forum member discounts

KI_ZN6 has some great LED packages. After speaking with Ken, I found an entire solution for my car with high quality LED's and a great HID kit. It should arrive at the end of this week. Take a look at what they offer. He'll answer any questions you have and make sure you get exactly what you want without having to worry about getting something that isn't good.

921 Silverstars ([ame="http://www.amazon.com/921-ST-BP-12SilverStar-Auxiliary/dp/B00318V5KM/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top"]Like This[/ame]? Noticeable improvement over LEDs? I have LEDS installed from a vendor here, and I don't like the brightness at all. I'm also looking for an upgrade.

Yep, i bought some cheap led ones off ebay for around $10 i'm sure the $30 led ones are brighter but who wants to pay that much for reverse lamp bulbs?

I bought a pair for $30, but I'm not satisfied with the output I'm gonna get this from amazon and report back if they are brighter than the $30/pair LEDs.
