Does any of you have the led bulbs from ledtronics?

According to their site, their led bulbs have bult-in current limiting resistors. What does that mean?
Do they require resistors in order for the bulbs to blink correctly?

I purchased a pair of these. They are plug and play, with built in resistors/circuit boards to handle the voltage difference (LEDs are 3.6v nominal).

To my surprise, these aftermarket LED bulbs do not work nearly as well, they are dim compared to the regular incadescent bulbs. You would think they will be as bright as the LED traffic lights or the LEDs on M3's or S-class benz's, but they're not even close. The color is all off too, because the lens of the tail lights will defract the beam. There are different viewing angles for LEDs, but it seems that none of the ones I tried (from 30 degrees to 180 degrees) worked to my satisfaction... My advice is to stay away from LED bulbs.
