No wiring. Plug in the adapter that is pre-wired to the LED module as if you were changing the original light bulb. This is an upgrade directly from Bargman--the manufacturer of the original taillights. Literally takes two minutes for each light. Only need a screwdriver. The module itself is completely sealed and when installed makes a weathertight seal with the original socket.

RvBill3 is absolutely correct.

Just a question, would it be better to change the signal lens to amber instead of Red - while making this change. I am about ready to pull the trigger and make this switch when I noticed the Amber/ Yellow LED for the signal. What are your thoughts?

I think 2 reds for stop, turn, and tail on each side are more distinguishable and thus the reason the mfg. installs them-- not sure about regulation requirements either.

I have tried a pair of the Bargman LED replacements and they work great. Much better than the incandescent bulbs. I only replaced one light on each side at this time as they are quite expensive. I also tried Philips LED bulbs (Direct replacement for 1157) and they do work quite well, but not as good as the multi-element Bargman units. One advantage of the Philips LED bulbs, is they wont fail, if and when water enters the fixture. Note that the Phillips bulbs are engineered for automotive use and are extremely rugged.

Standard equipment now?

I am under the impression that the LED tail lights are now standard equipment on the Forester and Sunseeker. Am I correct?

I did the same as maweb and did one one each side for the time. The only thing is the flash is slightly faster than the stock ones.

When I was chasing a trailer light problem I pulled the stock rear turn signal bulbs and found that they were doing the fast flash thing. Do I need to change a flasher if I replace them both? This is on a '06 E-450.
