Only bulb replacements
I just replaced my tail light bulbs with l.e.d. But my rear turn signals wouldn't work with the l.e.d. bulb replacements back to the drawing board..

That stuff coming out of your HUGE chrome exhaust you have mounted at an angle isn't power..It's Rice!!!

I ordered 4- 7443 from super bright but they wouldn't work in the brake turn light. I thought I might get away with the duel intenisty for the turn and brake as well as rear light but they wouldn't seat all the way into the plug so I didnt press the issue I'm going to order the 7440 and see if they work or are a little different base design..

I got the 15 l.e.d. 7443 I didn't use a load resistor. I like the hyper flash. But the rear turn bulb..the 7443 wouldnt work in those the rear tail lights the bulbs work fine but the turn bulb..negative

I tried to install chromed bulbs and yes the 7443s would not even fit the signals, 7440s did, after I sent them back I learned that they would have fit the fronts, so 7440 should work.

Re: 2011 MZ3 sedan LED tail lights

I think the sets I got (4) were like $24.00ish...That was for 4 I let one of my boys have the other 2 tail light bulbs and I ordered the 7440's for the rear turn sig's.
The bulbs are like 6 - bucks each according to how many l.e.d.'s you have in your bulb...the more l.e.d.'s the $ goes up. But they are cheap to me anyway.
