KHOALTY | 1156 / 7507 Switchback LEDs

This is the best of all worlds.

-120 high powered leds.
-E46 fitment.
-city light (white) / turn signaling (amber)
-not new technology, just new for 1156/7507 single filament fitment, don't care about being the first...just an awesome LED.
- will be available to purchase this coming weds (3/7/12).
-Price special will be $20 plus shipping for the pair (no inflated shipping cost).

We had to go with 120 leds due to the smaller leds. To fit in that many leds, you will not be troubled with the law where people can't tell if you are signaling or not. We have been testing these for the past yr without issues, we just didn't say anything about it but our batches are very consistent where failure rate is less than 1%.

Stay tune

You can't use these in the rears, only in the front. The rears only has one constant flow of voltage whereas the fronts do not.
It would be ideal if you use our 27SMD (high powered 5050 chips) for your rear lights to show that you are turning...they are pretty bright as well. We have upgraded our turn signal bulbs to give more light now for a while, it isn't the 18smd most vendors selling now.

This is what most people sell:


This is what we sell and give to customers for the past yr or so...just haven't updated our website to show they are getting a brighter led.



Sometimes when the customer ask us for brighter ones we usually give them as a courtesy as they have been ordering for a while.


In summary:
Vendors usually sell: 18led
We sell: 27led
Customer ask: 30led.

We do what we can help keep the cost down and help as much as possible to get the most bang out of your buck.

The switchbacks we use a smaller chip to get more light per color, but for one color led bulbs, best to use 5050 chips as those give most output in light.

Do these lights flash white then amber when signaling or does it just flash amber? I have read there are 2 flashing patterns being made.

This, I want mine to flash white.
Also if I already have a resistor set up for my interior LEDS from you guys will I need to wire another for the turn signals?

I'm trying to get mine working as they were designed to. They constantly flicker amber when car is running with parking lights on. Turn signals worked as they should. Emailed Khoalty. Hopefully they can help me figure this one out.
