Led turn signals

Hello,

does anyone has information about the possibility of replacing the front and/or back turn signals with LED ones ?
I've found something for the mazda 3 but didn't find anything for our CX3 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVe0UZe9C_o

They are nice. You could fit LED bulbs and the DRLs don't need to dim as they are miles away. Example,

2 X 36 LED Car Tail Brake Rear Amber Light Bulbs Lamp: Amazon.co.uk: Car & Motorbike

You need resister ones or the flasher unit will play up.

The good bulbs have resistors built in - just a straight swap.

Switchback Led strip

Hello from Monterey, Mexico. I installed a switchback led strip I really liked the results... Hope you guys like it.

In the first photo I was testing the orientation of the led strip, I finally decided to install it in a vertical position. My next step is changing the 1156 yellow halogen bulb I don't like the yellowish color it reflects, I'm looking for some nice Led instead.

Submitted a short video of how it looks just for you to get an idea of who bright they look at night.

Thanks for posting. We’d get shot at dawn for making such a mod in the UK but it has a distinctive effect.
