Question LED Tail/Turn signal bulbs

I have a 2008 350se. Has anyone changed over to rear LED lights or bulbs? How did you make out?

Trailer life or Motorhome magazine did an article about replacing just the bulbs instead of the whole fixture. If I remember correctly, most of the bulb only changes resulted in less light emitted from the fixture.

Youroo does the LED hide the mounting holes? I noticed then at Goshen but didn't want to get arrested for stealing mod ideas

I have a 2012 Georgetown and these are the factory LED lights that came with it.
Hopefully this will help you find a good set.
You might even look at the trucker websites as these look like the ones the truckers use.
I think these are held in by a rubber boot around the fiberglass rear cap.

Here is a link to Ebay for 4" LED stop lights that have motion rings.
See the video below the ad and see how they work.
Really cool lights.

Here is a link to the regular LED stop lights

LED lights for RVs, cargo / utility trailers, boat and watercraft trailers and trucks has a lot in the way of tail lights / brake lights, basically all the stuff semi tractor/trailers use, and then some.

Here's a light bar similar to the above upgrade.

250-4400 15" Slim low profile RED LED tail light for trucks, horse, boat, cargo, utility trailers
