I just replaced my turn signal bulbs with some "switchback" LED bulbs. Here's how they operate...When the parking lamp switch is on, they will alternate from white to amber when you use your turn signals; When the parking lamp switch is off, they signal in amber only. I can use them as daytime running lights. I found out that I didn't have to use the LED resistors I had purchased to go along with these. Here's a couple of videos and a pic.

I really like that, those are awesome. Where did you get them? Also where did you get the halo fogs? The ones i have aren't nearly as bright.

Those are beautiful, compared to the Stealth - clearly they give off a ton more light!

No problems with the signal getting to the lights? Nothing else needed? :headscratch: I was told if LEDs were put in the front markers, the signal strength wouldn't be strong enough... :scratchchin

Do tell, I think we need thoseeeeee! :bigthumbsup :laugh:

Nice mod!! :bigthumbsup :bigthumbsup

Man those are real nice. I have the same questions as everyone else:

Where did you get them?
How much?
Those are probably the best quality looking halo's i've seen, where did you get them? (Both the primary lights and fogs!)

Thanks everyone!

I've actually noticed my turn signals hyper flashing when waiting to make a turn one time when coming home from work but when I got home to check it again everything was normal. :headscratch: Anyway, I installed the two 6 ohm resistors I had purchased to go along with the LED "switchback" bulbs and haven't seen any hyper flashing since. I guess they do need resistors after all.

The turn signal bulbs are the
60-60 led SMT Stealth Ultimate Switchback Bulbs in the AW style. The bulbs were easy to install. Just take out the old ones and plug these in. Installing the resistors took a bit more time; probably half hour each side. Here's a link...
Switchback bulbs

The halo headlights and fogs are CCFL types. CCFL's are much brighter than regular LED halos. I purchased everything on Ebay. Just do a search for "05 mustang ccfl halo" and you'll find some.

The halos? You can definitely see the halo rings even with the main lights on.

No problems with signal strength whatsoever.

That is really sweet man. I have another question though, where did you get your primary halo's and fog halo's too?
