Can anyone confirm?
LED'* wont' be bright enough for reverse lights, and your lamp monitor will have a fit. Go to Autozone. They'll confirm your reverse light number, and they have the halogen reverse bulb I'm using.

No AutoZone in Canada Bill, but they should have bulb numbers in the Owners Manual or failing that a listing at any car parts retailer.

Next time I go to AZ, I'll get the info of the halogen reverse lamps for you '* Or maybe kennginn can tell us. He works there.

Ok.. I checked at the local CT.... they don't sell halogen lights in those styles.
I also phoned around to NAPA and CarParts, nadda... on the halogens and on the VHT paint....

Might need to do a cross border shipping w/ my one of my American friends (nudge nudge).

:EDIT:
Went to DriveFX.Ca

Did a search, found the following items (see the link)
http://www.7453217467431.com/browse/...ID&affID=39963

Which ones do you guys suggest?
The PIAA, the Toucan Xenon'* or the DesignTech 50w?

Try pin striping your tails.You can tint them black or the same color of your ride.I started with 1/4in.strip and then put 1/8in.stripe on later ( not pictured ) in between the 1/4in.stripe.Looks great and can be seen just fine in day light.Adding the 1/8in. in between the 1/4 makes it alot darker. Works for me. See pic'* http://photos.yahoo.com/socleanone
