    Ron you have any info on the led bulbs your talking about? Are they direct plug in or do you have to make changes like I see in some treads?
    Your lights are cloudy and chalky . I heard your wife ask me that at the track and I took a peak, told her its an easy clean up!

    I got my fog lights from a place called "http://www.certifit.com/". They are local to me in the same parking lot where I work, so it was a no brainer. The turn signal housings were purchased from gmpartsdirect.com

    I haven't upgraded to the leds yet on the TA, so sorry guys, no info on what it takes to install. I know with my 09 Cobalt, I installed led tails lights, and they hyper blink. I'm either gonna get a resistor for the bulbs, or just change out the stock flasher relay for 1 that works with the led's.

    Once the flasher is updated to an LED capable one, you not only have a fresh updated unit, but you can add more LED bulbs later on!

    I would probably have to check with the company, I have sequential tail lights and I remember them not being compatible with LED's so I don't know if a led flasher would affect them!

    Aside of work this morning I've had the day to myself. Cleaned at home and got some stuff done. Ordered a pizza as a lazy dinner and drove the WS6 around until it was ready for pick up .

    I also have been meaning to get a clip of my signal flasher. Video pretty much describes the issue. I just forgot to mention the signal will still kick back when the wheel is turned and straightened. It just hyper flashes and does not 'tick tick' on individual signaling. Bad flasher relay? As you can see from the video I have whiteface gauges. I hope it wasn't the original installer's fault. In that case it is livable.

    I took it for a quick ride this evening, and returned home by dark. I let it run with the parking lamps on and did a admirable walk around of it in the garage. I noticed the license plate light and the glow of the filament bulb. I then went to the back of my F150 and pulled one of the #194 high powered V-LED bulbs I have in it ( 6000k color ) and put it in the WS6. I ended up liking it and am quite blown away with how bright it is. Almost wish it wasn't so bright but damn is it clean looking!

    Before:


    After:




    The bulb is a tight fit but it did fit. Here is a link.
    6K WHITE 4 LED HIGH POWER FLANK BULBS 194 168 158 160LM | 1 PAIR. Currently costs $18 per pair.. Jeeze, when I bought them for my F150 I was bitching that they were $14.50! If anyone orders one, use quantity 0.5 for just a single bulb. They also offer a 5000k white compared to my 6000k slight blue hue white.

    As your attorney, I would recommend against lighting up your plate real well. Kind of blows the "some other dude defense" if they can get a good read on it!

    One of your bulbs is out or partial out.

    There are 2 bulbs in the back of each tail light for the brake and turn signals. There are 3 bulbs total in each side, but only 2 of them light up for the brake and tail lights. Turn your left or right signal on, then go to the back of the car to check for both bulbs flashing. You can also check for corrosion inside the contacts where the bulb and socket meet.

    At the local cruise-in, I took these photos. PaJeff's Buick Regal T-type and their recently acquired '70 Camaro to the left of my car. To the right, Zack ( zapper2003 )'s Firebird, and a built and serious Dart owned by a fellow named Ron.
