CREE reverse light bulbs?

Good Evening All,

With the tinted windows, visibility out the back isn't great at night due to the poor light given out by the reverse lamp bulbs. Obviously CREE bulbs are going to be better but which type?

I have found these so far































Anyone tried any of these? Any opinions? Photos would be great too, if you have any.


Thanks


Ben

Hi Ben,

yes I ve seen them as I went by ebay UK.
first of all they are pretty expensive, not even including postage and handling to Germany.
So just for a try? no

We are using the regular bulbs with 35 watts, they are affordable and they brigthen up the area behind our Kugas. Some forum members tried the 50 watt version, but when you leave the ignition on and have your reverse gear still in the bulbs will melt the plastic. I just cant find the post with the pic, but we are very happy with the 35 watts regular bulb

How long do you have to leave it in reverse for them to melt the plastic????

CREE's let off much less heat, so should be ok.

I want to try some but not sure, which style is best,

well they were on for about 15 minutes or so.

I know, but who things of the heat?

I certainly cant be of any help about the CREE's
but it would be nice of you letting us know how it went out.
If I had to choose, I would decide for the 50watt ones, which of the 2, is a question of $

Not just the power that is important but the light pattern too, too many to choose from

youre totaly right Ben.
But thats what Im saying, first try the ones with the most power. If they dont work out, due to lets say insufficient light patters, take the next. But keep an eye on your cost buddy.

Looks to me as if they light the driveway for 5m and then nothing.
OK they are very bright, but you have to take a look if they suit you.

I can confirm that these and any design like it



Are useless/no good in the Kuga lamps, due to the bulb going into the lamp at an angle and not facing directly back. Fitted them to a friends car where the bulbs point straight out the light and they work well.

Think I may have to try the ones in the first picture! Hope they work, as they will be a good waste of £30 otherwise.
