I have a 996 c4s and was thinking of replacing the stock tail light bulbs with LED bulbs (superbrightled.com). i like the look of the led's, plus they are more efficient. The stock housing and lens would be unchanged. has anyone done this and if so how do they look?

:D

I seem to remember with some cars there being a problem because they have such low resistance they flip the light out indicator on some cars. you can put a resistor on it to circumvent but sheesh.

My 2001 C4 has LED bulbs all around. I even bridged the "fog" lights, both sides, into the brake circuit so that those light up along with the high mount when I use the brakes for a more different, noticeable, look brake off vs brake on.

The only downside was that the cruise control would not engage until I installed a relay to bridge in a low resistance halogen bulb with the brake off.

The amber turn signal led bulbs will need a parallel resistor so the turn signal timing relay will work.
