Eagle Eye tails are sold by most if not all of the sponsors. These are made by DEPO. About 90-99% of OEM quality from what I've heard and read. They have resistors built in, so you can just plug them in with no light out error codes. Here are some links to some manufacturers:

Eagle Eyes from Umnitza

Scroll down this page for Eagle Eye tails from Khoalty

Eagle Eyes from EAS

Eagle Eyes from Modbargains

Eagle Eyes from Euro-Spec

There are others, I'm sure I'm missing some.

You can also go the ebay route, but I would search to see what vendors are good. Khoalty I believe has the lowest price on them, outside of ebay.

We carry the Eagle Eyes version which are plug and play, have the built in resistors and do not cause a bulb out error

I bought smoked LED taillights and installed them yesterday. When the car is turned on and I turn the lights on the right and left brake lights flash repeatedly. The left rear turn signal also blinks in the same pattern, but the right rear turn signal doesn't. After it does this like 20 times, the lights operate normally as they should as far as I can tell. Can anyone advise what may be wrong with my lights?

I've checked connections and everything has been unclipped and clipped back together.

ok, I was wrong, it was raining and I was flustered. The lights are blinking in the manner stated above when I turn the car on. It doesn't matter if the lights are on or off, when I turn the key the same thing happens.

Anybody, anything???
