Left hand side LED taillight is brighter the right hand side LED taillight

Hi guys ,
Would anyone know why my L/H/S M3 LED tail light is brighter then my L/H/S LED tail light. When i push the brakes , they are perfectly even but when I turn on my lights , one side is bright and the other side is very dim.
Thanks

Same for my facelift style RCR LEDs. But not to the average eye, only to a perfectionist like myself.

How long have you had these for? You might want to contact your retailer for a replacement.

I have already contacted who I bought them from (but not for this reason, for another reason). I am just looking for my OEM tails (misplaced them or something) or trying to find some used ones locally so I can have som temporary tails.
