    Normal Stock Item - Next Business Day

    As seen on Gearz with Stacey David - After searching far and wide, to and fro, here and there...we finally found the best LED replacement bulb for your Cougar, Mustang and any other cars that use an 1157 taillight bulb. These new "Plasma" LED bulbs are significantly brighter and more efficient than your standard bulbs. This is a 20-pack of bulbs to replace taillights in multiple vehicles. We also sell them in 2-packs for individual vehicles, as well as 6 packs for those with a Cougar, Shelby, or Thunderbird (or 3 normal cars).

    We're also told that these will work as replacements for 2057, 2357, 2397, and 7528 bulbs, but haven't tested ourselves to verify. Let us know if you find out!

    Applications: Stop lamps / Rear turn signals / Parking lights

    1967-68 Cougar owners: you're lucky; these will work in your car with no modifications. As you seen in the video, they work fine right out of the package whether you have the new and improved solid state sequential unit or the original mechanical unit.

    1969-73 Cougar owners: you will need additional equipment in order for these bulbs to function correctly with the sequential turn signals. See the chart at the bottom of this page for which components you'll need to have a fully functioning LED light system.

    Specifics and Benefits:

    • 8W Dual / Double Contact Point Plasma & CREE LED Auto Tail Brake Light Bulb
    • Better efficiency than stock bulbs, headlights do not dim when applying brakes
    • Direct Plug-In Replacement; No socket alterations required
    • Brightness: 90 lumens (low), 200 lumens (high)
    • Current draw: 80ma (low), 300ma (high)
    • Life expectancy: up to 30,000 Hours
    • Completely fills the taillight reflector, illuminates red, not warm white like incandescent

    Overall Dimensions:

    • 2" (Length - Tip to Socket Bottom) X 0.75" (Diameter)
    • 1 3/8" extends out of the socket

    Additional Information:

    We should let you know that there is another bulb on the market coming from China and marketed on ebay that looks virtually identical to our bulb. We have tested the competitions' bulb and find that it looks and fits just like ours but the brake light function is noticeably dimmer. There has been some discussion on whether or not one might encounter some attention from law enforcement due to the shockingly bright brake light function of these bulbs. Based on our experience, our conclusion thus far has been that this should not be a concern. Here are some excerpts from NHTSA documents: DOT HS 811 127 and DOT HS 811 329.

    "Data suggests that failure to respond (or delay in responding) to a stopped or decelerating lead vehicle is generally a result of distraction, and in particular, improper allocation of visual attention. Thus, VTTI’s approach to the rear-end crash problem has argued that a successful rear signaling system would work to redirect driver visual attention to the forward roadway (for cases involving distracted drivers),"

    "Rated discomfort glare is closely related to rated attention-getting. It appears that it is necessary to accept somewhat greater rated discomfort glare to achieve greater attention getting. Here again, the result is the same as for earlier tests with incandescent lamps, which showed a near-identical ordering for discomfort glare and attention-getting for various enhanced rear lighting systems. "

    Once your eyes un-cross from reading that last part, check out our video below, comparing these new bulbs to the older LED tower bulbs, and the stock 1157 incandescent bulbs:



    Cougar compatibility chart: Since Cougars have the added fun of sequential turn signals, some cars will need additional components to make the turn signal system work properly with LED taillights. Click the image below to view the full-size version.

    Cons:
    I bought these and am real happy with them, I like watching Don's video's he covered them quote well I showed them to quite a few guys at the local car show and they are all interested I have to say that you much be real careful when you handle them to remove them and reinstall them, I noticed that they will twist between the base and the top part, I had to remove them to show the difference to other car guys, I will not remove the same bulb more then a couple of times, I put them beside the old bulbs to show to others and like Don show us all in the video what a big difference, I will buy these again for friends and my self.
