I've had them on my car since new (March '05) and previously had them on my NBC. I removed the chrome strip (held on only by double-sided tape) and they look much better.



And a side shot to give another angle...



The lights don't blink any faster than the factory bulbs do thanks to built-in resistors. What I like most about them, they're so darn bright!!

I've yet to see them on a car, but I've seen several pics of these tial lights. I do like the way they look, but seeing the photo of the back of the lights leaves something to be desired. Seems like a wiring hack job :rolleyes:

If I have the chance I would install the fully red.
Unfortunately it's illegal to drive with red blink-blink turnlights in Germany :(

i have had a pair for a little over a year now. I had no problem with the fitment or use. I live in maine where the weather can be quite harsh. the proce was worth it if for no other reason, but ot have something that most other beetles don't have

I've had my set on within a month of buying the car too. (July '05) Had them picked out while waiting for the car to arrive from the factory. I must agree with Pelican, the chrome strip needs to go. I haven't peeled mine off yet. Course I'm planing to order the red/clear LED lights. After seeing the car from behind while it was being driven by my wife I had second thoughts about the lights. Figured I would try something else. Once I have the new lights on I'll post a pic. In the mean time here is a pic of the honeycomb LED's.
