Sorry, but I don't have any more of the old-school bulbs...I threw them in the recycling bin after seeing the difference first hand. Standing behind the car while the new turn signals were doing that instantaneous ON-OFF, and seeing the brake lights light up...i was sold. If you admire the newer cars, of which some have these LED lamps, and how good they look in operation(either when the brakes are used or turn signals), then go for it. My primary concern was the current draw from the older set-up, and the ability of people to see me stopped at a light, or making turns/merging.

Again...the better to be seen, the better to be avoided(as many accidents are not a function of poor judgement or stupidity, but simply didn't make visual contact with the other car). If I remember correctly, the passenger who was with James Dean said his last words were:"he see's us, right?"
