    1973 TR6 with 2022 tail/brake lights what’s not to like?!

  6. Bernice Price (verified owner)

    Everyone complained that they couldn’t see my brake lights on my 65 VW Karmann ghia, with these new LEDS it is ridiculously bright!!! I love it. Now I’m not paranoid about being rear ended. Bulbs were shipped quickly and are a outstanding product. Thank you very much.

    Replaced the 1157 incandescent brake light bulbs in my KZ1100 with these (VC1157R). The red LEDs shine through the red brake light lens significantly brighter than the regular incandescents making my narrow back end much more visible to the average distracted driver. The bulbs shine out the sides and through the end which makes a nice bright red circle on the lens. They seem much better made and better suited as brake lights than the other red LED 1157s I’ve found (Sylvania).
