Mines were backordered. It took a little less than a month.

I read where they are 50% brighter when the head lights are off so you they can be day light driving lights.

That's if you tap into the head light wiring. I did not.

That's good to know.

Just trying to justify if the bulbs are worth the prices

kinda of hard to shell out $130 for led bulbs. But they look badass.

Do you have any pic of just the "fog" Switchback against a wall?

Need help

I got my switchbacks (vled) installed yesterday, the same one everyone recommends and they hyperflash, I got them installed professionally along with a HID kit because I don't have any experience with that stuff, so not sure if its the lights or the guy who did them, but he's done lots of things with me and he's trustful.

i thought the kit came with resistors or do i need more or is it broken?

Yes, you need LED LOAD EQUALIZER RESISTORS. Also from VLEDs. Some modern flasher units will work ok with LEDs but most need to see some resistance.

Stock '06 Altima S w/comfort package.

I emailed the customer service and they said thy don't need a resistor, however I used the wrong adapters. I bought the ones stated above (7443/7440) ,but they said for the 13' Altima it's suppose to be 3157CK.

Which did you buy?
