    Anyone replace your stock taillight and turn signal bulbs with LED bulbs? Encounter any problems? What brands and styles did you use?

    Sure appreciate any pointers......

    They aren't bright enough for use in full daylight. Aftermarket bulbs haven't caught up to OEM ones like in BMWs, Caddys etc. My suggestion is to NOT to use them at all. You'd be putting yourself as well as others in danger.

    Darn shame. Every time I see those LED stoplight panels on a Caddie light up, I know I'm looking at the future...
