Ahhh... just got married a week ago and we might have our first fight as a married couple b/c of you sick.
I already have v-leds 921(i think) 8watt bulbs. Do you think this is brighter?

I'm more interested in if it helps visibility through the rear camera so if it does, then I'd buy. I know the other LEDs don't help much, but since these are new led technology, I'm hoping they will.

So, I have to be the jerk. But leds have crazy long lifespans... How come only a 90 day warranty? 50 dollar reverse lights with only a 3 month warranty? Otherwise I'd totally be in on this. I've bought other stuff from Sick, so don't think I'm implying anything... just saying
You're not being a jerk at all. This is a very good question! The bottom line is at the cost I am offering this for, my warranty is only 90 days. These LEDs tend to last very long several years even, however if there are issues with them we tend to notice them with LED's within the first month or so. Most manufacturers only offer a 30 or 90 day warranty or they charge through the roof for their LED bulbs to makeup for the extra warranty period.

I just would like to see how they fit in the reverse housing first and a few pics of some night time shots to check out the illumination before a purchase is made. Thanks Sick!
No problem at all, this is why I have an interested list and a paid list. I will add you to the interested list

Hi Sick, can u PM me for a pair with shipping to my address in Canada please. Just to see how much it'll cost with shipping. Thks Sick.
Shipping to Canada is a flat rate of $20 to ship USPS priority international mail. Just sent you a PM.

Congratulations on your marriage! Sorry about that don't mean to make you guys fight. I believe that these will be much brighter because these have 20 Watts versus the existing 8 Watt bulbs you have now.

I agree 100%! I believe these will definitely improve the visibility through the rear camera because these are the newest LED technology. If you check these out on the research page, these are not 5050 LEDs they're not even 5630 LEDs, these do not have a number as these are the latest and greatest LEDs available. They are CREE X Lamp XP-G.

Can you put me on the list as 'seriously interested' and am I able to issue payment upon shipment?
I will put you on the seriously interested list, however payment will needed to be made before the item ships.

Sick, I havent even installed the LED Switchbacks yet and im seriously considering these. Would i have any bulb sizes issues with my 2011 LX? I only ask because the dealer still refuses to give me an owners manual so i would want to make sure before payment.

Thanks, oh and place me on "seriously interested" if they fit!

I can't see any reason why they would fit any differently on your Optima. It should fit without any issues! I will add you to the seriously interested list

Seriously interested. Add meeee!
Done! ;)

Does anyone know how many lumens the stock bulbs are? I'm interested too but would like to know roughly how much brighter they are. I currently have a 32 led bulb (I think) in my reverse light housing which isn't too bright.
