Thank you. Our LEDs are unique that when you switch out the tails/brakes it has a lot of contrast meaning when you activate the brake it is bright so it looks like you are braking, it is a big concern of many customers who contact us after buying other LEDs. If there is not enough contrast between tails and brakes people will not notice you braking which defeats the purpose of installing LEDs.I converted mine last year. Exceptional results! The INSTANT ON effect is great as well as the brightness... for a single bulb housing
2012 Passat TDI 6MT
Saw this post last night and couldn't wait anymore, so I went ahead and ordered them. I did the back up led's awhile back. Thanks DeAuto! :thumbup:
This is a must upgrade for the Passat. So much brighter and more noticeable now. I have it on both of my Passats (LED DRLS too.) Install is a breeze too.
Thanks everyone for the support and orders, we ship daily so you will receive your LEDs by the end of the week.Been considering these (or at least the reversing bulbs) for my g/f's B7 & those shots above may just be the tipping point I needed. They do look gooood & I'm just not ready to do the added work to slide a set of Chinese-market tails on yet. Look like they'll make a nice counter-point to the HID headlights I dropped in last month. :thumbup::thumbup:
We use the same setup - the contrast between brake/tails should be very noticeable - that is the biggest issue customers email us with when purchasing/piecing together OTHER LEDs for their passat brake LEDs. Our kit uses bright brake LEDs to provide the contrast.Are these a newer version? I brought the complete set a couple months back, and while they're brighter than stock as tails, they brakes are just a little brighter.
:thumbup: thank you - appreciated it.Best led lights with lifetime guarantee.... No brainer deautokey.com:thumbup:
I spent over an hour on mine (driver-side) and it kept settling into the same exact not-quite-flush position, no matter how I approached it Everything lines up in the plane of the vertical (rear) face of the trunk lid, it just protrudes ever so slightly on the outer edge.You have to play with it. I hate taking them out because I spend 20 minutes trying to get them back in. They should be flush if not water will get in.
