No need for resistors, its build in already. No errors, blinks normal. It comes from hong kong so it takes about 2 weeks to get here. It has a very nice amber color. Very satisfied.

About 80 to 90 unless you get the mtech angel eyes that's 200 more or you can get a different bulbs for cheaper around 50

Sweet thread, I will be ordering a bunch of stuff (including the DRLs) this weekend. Where would I go about getting the resistors for the DRLs?

I ordered the same as well but I noticed most of these bulbs are shorter in length then the halogen lights. Did you have to get a new lighting housing unit or did you just bend the connectors so that the light can fit?

I ordered new housing for the footwells and they came with the bulbs. The rest just fit in as a replacement.

All the plastic housings popped out with a small flathead screwdriver. I ordered my lights from
Angel Lights USA on EBAY for 35.95 for both.

Here is the link I seen above for the visor:

LED visors/rear footrest(type festoon/4 bulbs/2 pairs/ qty 2):

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2x-White-39m...item231210e128

When I received the LED it was smaller then the halogen and smaller then the housing.

I got that too and they are small as it clearly shows in your picture but I got 4 (2 sets) of this one and they worked perfect as you can see in the pix I posted
