Hello everyone!

Just to let my first gen 3's know about my experience regarding these reverse lights.

In summary I do not reccomend/like these for multiple reasons.

These are too long for our housings, they fit but they hit the plastic. During the day they look horrible but at night they are decent there are shadows. Fitment was not great at first I thought I was sent the wrong ones but they turned on when in reverse. The pictures you will sww what I am talking about. The quality is nice of these bulbs they seem very sturdy but it's not for me

I got these via Amazon because I got taillights LED from the same brand and they were amazing so I tried these. So I am returning these and maybe getting reverse lights from Diode Dynamics or Xenon Depot. I already have reverse lights from VLED for my '16. amazing lights but way expensive.

Just go to Advance Auto and get a 2 pack of Sylvania 7440 LED minis. They work great. Those 7440 type bulbs you have are for tail light / brake light applications.

Than it was user error than. Usually I'm good at this stuff. I will follow your suggestion and do it. Thanks!
