So i decided while i wait to get my 2 stage white/amber l.e.d front turn signals i'd play with these plain white ones....but my question is now that i have these bulbs in my blinkers do the "hyper blink" i guess is the best way to describe it is this normal or is there a solution?

I'm not sure about the 6000k but i do know that they make my bulbs both white and amber so when i hit the signal its amber but for driving its white

you need to add a capacitor, the car thinks that the bulb is out and thats why you get the hyperblink problem . (ithink)

ok that makes sense i just found some switchbacks for 42.95 but i'm not sure if that is a good price or not for a set with resistors anyone familiar with these?

you should be able to wire in a capacitor for a few bucks from radio shack. I think the one I used for my hid headlights was around 5 dollars. You'd have to search around and find out which one you need. i agree that the led bulb only used a fraction of the juice the incandescent bulb did, thus blinking as if the bulb is out?

It will shorten the life of the bulb and 43 bucks is crazy do not order them!!! You simply need to wire in a resistor with the bulbs to let the computer know there is still a bulb. There are several posts on LX or your forum of choice that explain how to do it and can be done for under a buck in parts.
