    Hey,

    So I bought this and it doesnt fit... seems the circuit board is too long so it wont go in right unless i angle it sideways which points the light in an unsatisfactory direction (would love for it to point down).

    https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/festoon/578-led-bulb-8-led-festoon-44mm-car/3582/7661/

    Did anyone buy this and have it not fit as well? I called to discuss and they pretty much blamed me for not measuring... seems to defeat the purpose of having the tool online to match the lights to vehicle. Anyways im slightly annoyed because I dotn want to ship back and deal with allt he hassle for 5-10$. I feel kind of hustled....


    Anyone been down this road?

    Plug and play right? Can’t seem to find out if the second gen guys have to wire in resistors or not.

    The Philips was plug and play. No resistors.

    Is this significantly brighter? Is it a warm color or more Stark white?

    Yep!

    The Philips is 6000K so “daylight” meaning a very stark white compared to a standard incandescent bulb at 2800K.
