How easy is it to install the side marker LEDs? I want to get rid of the amber ones and since you have some in stock I'm contemplating buying some along with some interior bulbs as well.
They're so easy, I actually did mine in like 30-45 minutes.

Are you changing out the entire housing assembly or just the bulb itself? I tackled this project over the weekend and installed clear side markers on my Type R using ones that I bought from Suma Performance. The driver's side was perfect but the passenger side has an ugly gap. I am considering removing them because of possible water intrusion. Not satisfied with their product and if you're using them and you have a non-Type R, the assembly should fit just fine without any issues.

I swapped out the entire housing assembly. The ones I bought are sequential side markers and have to be connected to the turn signal wiring to function when you turn on your signals

So I've gone through this thread and a couple other people have asked as well and so far no answers. Does anyone know what bulbs power the 3rd brake light at the top of the rear window and what bulbs power the rear running lights on the tail lights

I have a si sedan so my 3rd light doesn't apply to yours.
But I believe the running lights are a built in LED circuit board, similar to the running L shaped running lights on the headlight.
These bulbs can't be changed it seems.
I'm not 100% certain, but I haven't been able to find the 'sockets' for said running light bulbs on the rear.

For the front running lights, I'm quite sure they're built in.

I've just took apart the 3rd brake light, it appears to be an led strip as well. It just doesn't look like it from the outside as it has a weird textured plastic covering over it.

Hi! Probably a noob question but, reading how the fog light takes a 35W bulb? if i went to amazon and bought an LED bulb stating its 60W, is there a big issue? What damages would it cause?

did you check if the amazon ad stated it was 60 watt per bulb or 60 watt per pair?
Personally I would be concerned if it is truly 60W per bulb.
not a fan of amazon bulbs either way silicone gaskets in these prone to suboptimal sealing -> moisture accumulation in housing (happened to me). will be getting Diode Dynamics SS3 MAX once my housing rots/current amazon bulbs blow

its these lets say,
https://www.amazon.ca/TUINCYN-H11-H...ords=H8+35w+6500k&qid=1606592784&sr=8-30&th=1

Looks like from the description its per set meaning its 30W per bulb so it would be okay?

  • ❶ H11/H9/H8/H16JP LED Headlight Bulb with 12pcs Top Automotive-Grade CSP LED Chip, Xenon White 6500K Color Temperature, High Lumens 60W 12000LM Per Set, DC 11-30V(fit 12V, 24V vehicles) Operating Voltage. More Bright Than The Halogen Bulb.

if you can trust them, yep 30W per bulb is less than stock i believe
should be fine

let me know if you develop condensation in the housing after you use them for awhile

Hey everyone,

I'm a little confused about the list in the beginning of this thread.

I have a 2020 Si Coupe and I wanna replace the rear brake, turn signal, and backup lights. I went on theretrofightsource.com site and I'm able to find the brake lights (1156 / BA15S [Coupe]) but cannot find anything for the turn signal (Rear: BAU15 [Coupe]) or reverse lights (Bax9s [Coupe])
. Can someone point me in the right direction? Or is it that they just don't have those bulbs?

I'm using this webpage on TRS. Thanks for the help.
