Hi

I'm planning to replace my turn-signals with leds.

Will the electrical system accept the leds or do I need extra electronics to prevent the system from changing the blinking frequency.

Second:
With the new leds there's extra space to add running-lights and brake-lights (all leds).

For the leds I'm planning to use the hyperflux, red and orange, 3000MCD 160 degrees leds, 70mA en 2v.

Anyone suggestions ?

tnx

The LEDs that I have came with some kind of resister pack, that is designed (as I understand it) to make them mimick the way normal lights turn on and off. LEDs are kind of instant on and off, which I like as they get attention, but most every post on these has some comment about the resistors. Not sure if rate is affected by the resistor. I did not try without the resistor. Viewing angle is fine on mine.
