- I bought them on Ebay from seller "oemgermanparts" and they came in a Hella box, but I believe were made in Hong Kong.

- I had the dash warning indicating that my tail lights were out, but since I installed the load resistors purchased from Velocityleds_1 on E-bay, I have had no problems whatsoever, damn they look fresh!

- I LOVE LED"S TOO!!!!''

These are made by DEPO. They are from DEPO.

But the resistor solution is troubling as those resistors get very hot and will eventually burn through the tape holding them. This is a dangerous solution.

What we had engineered and are still willing and able to do easily is a complete revision of the circuitry so that you never get the error, we can even enable to outside LEDs to work.
