    Not sure... Bought 4 sets off eBay, 2 sets came with resistors from seller in Cali but was some kind of Asian brand. The other 2 sets from china came in little baggies w/o resistors). The ones from Cali lights up amber and links amber and the ones china lights up white and blinks white.

    I've dealt with a lot of different switchbacks. Still haven't found a pair that works yet.

    I've heard that the VVME or whatever the brand is actually work properly

    Just replaced the existing bulbs.... but I saw somewhere people disconnecting the dtrl and switching out a harness? Don't too know too much electrical stuff, but someone has a diagram/walk through/pics ill appreciate it.
