Default LED tail lamps

I was at the autopart store the other day and I saw some 'led' bulbs that are the same size as our tail lamps. They were made by APC, do you think that I would notice a difference if I replaced the regular bulbs with LED?

No, those are for Euro Tails, If you have clear tails the purpose is for them to be clear not red know what I mean. You might see a difference but not for the money

Yeah I know, but I thought that they would light up differently. They were like $5 so maybe I will try them just to see.

They could have been under the wrong label... the package itself didnt have a price on it, I was going by the rack it was on... are they usally more?
