Very Disappointed in this Product Purchase!!
I am very disappointed in this product, this purchase was a total waste of $60 and is of no use to me now. For one thing, the product description is very misleading. It states that it is recommended for use with clear turn signal housings. I took that to mean the OEM amber ones without tint! It looks ridiculous when you install this LED bulb as this one is very orange in colour (not amber as described) and then the side marker bulb appears amber (even though it is white), so you end up with 2 totally different colours in the housing and it makes your ride look totally riced out! Besides that disappointment, I installed the resistor correctly but it was impacting my tail light operation. First when I would put on the turn signal, it would hyper flash, if I turned it off and then turned it on again it would flash normally. Then what was happening with the tail lights is that with the tail lights turned on the 2 bulbs would flash for signalling but then when you turned off the turn signal, those 2 bulbs would no longer be illuminated and your tail light would only having the inside bulb (the one closest to the faux gas cap) illuminated. This may be related to the fact that I have Raxiom LED tail light bulbs without resistors as those functioned fine for me without resistors and when I ordered those, they were shipped to me without any resistors included. I had one side done with the resistor mounted and then when I encountered this issue, I converted it back to stock again. After doing so the tail lights functioned perfectly again. Buyer Beware if you have a 2005-2009 Mustang with the OEM amber front turn signal housing! This product needs a revised description that specifically states that if you use it with the OEM housings you will end up with 2 totally different colours inside the housings, the turn signal LED bulb being very orange and the side marker OEM bulb showing as amber through the lens. This is my first purchase from AM whereby I am disappointed, to say the least! I'm certainly glad that this was not my very first purchase as had that been the case, I would have been scared away from future shopping with AM!
