Super Lux LED Tailights?

Heres a picture of them
04 09 Hyundai Sonata LED Tail Light Lamp New Ass'Y 4pcs | eBay

I've been researching the forums about these LED tail lights and I don't think I've come across any bad things about them.

But I just wanted to ask, does anyone have these installed? How long have you had them and are there any problems with them?

And if the LEDs start going out, is there any way to replace them instead of buying a whole new tail light for over $200..? This is a big thing i'm worried about. I don't want to have them a year and all the LEDs start to die..

i remember reading in here that someone bought them and the eletric conectors are differnt, due to them being made for the Korean Sonata. But all you have to do is cut of their connector and splice on your connector. I dont know if theirs the same number of wires for each making it easier or if its something u just gotta mess around with till u get the wires correct, but again IDK really.
Someone on here has them though
And i too would like to knoe about replacments as I dont wanna have to buy a whole new one.
But many performance minded things first for me than these.

I have also read here that the Cruise Control stops working due to some difference between incandescent and LED bulbs, possibly due to differences in resistance. That was for replacement bulbs, not sure it would apply to entire assembly replacement. Something to keep in my though.

I have these. They've been on for 1 year +. No problems. I did get them off E-bay but not that vendor.

Cheers

Okay that's good news. Was it plug in and play and Did they effect your cruise control? And if a light goes out is it replaceable? Or would I have to buy the entire lights again?

I also have these installed (had them for a 1+ years now as well). They are very high quality and a plug and play install (connectors match the stock plugs). I'm not sure if they have an effect on the cruise control as I don't use it often - but I had no problems with it the few times I have used it on road trips (the set includes resistors so that probably takes care of the issue). You can check my garage for pics.

Im glad to hear their are no issues with the connectors and its plug and play. I guess the only minor issue is the output quality of the lights. Are they briter than stock, and when the brakes are on, do they lite up twice as brite as just the taillights on?

Thanx for the update on these and the pics also. Any chance u remember which vendor u bought them from, im kinda guessine their all the same, sicne their mostly comin from S.korea. As long as they have the resistors in them we should be good

I think they are comparable to stock, though not as bright as some other leds i've seen (like audi). You can definitely tell the difference between low and high brightness, which i've heard is an issue with some other aftermarket leds. When it warms up, I plan on modding them so that the inside lights light up when the brakes are hit as well (a la azera). My only gripe is I wish the turn signal leds were a little brighter (they're a little hard to see in bright sunlight).

The set I purchased was from ebay (eBay My World - dldudrnjs)
