Just put a red one of these in for my brake light. All other bulbs are standard (6v 5w for running and a Halogen headlight). Significant improvement, the only negative is that they are bigger than a standard bulb and position almost sideways. The positive is that it is about 5x brighter and doesn't rely on rpms to increase brightness. It's comforting to know people behind me can tell when I am stopping. https://www.ledlight.com/24-led-light-s25-6-volt-dc-positive-or-negative-chassis-non-polarity-sensitve.aspx?fbclid=IwAR2KLg-vGwzcQEj6yNFgkOmKWkTcicvGLmHKR9XpdDtpGBAasa25BmJ2xgU

Kezarts - sounds like a nice upgrade - assuming it will be reliable (relative...) and not cause issues with the other bulbs. Great.

Can you post a few pics of it installed without the cover?
Would love to see what you mean by "almost sideways".
Did you put a red bulb in or clear?

Thanks for posting!
