Hmm, nice. The true test is during the day though, in sunlight. Got any pics of that?

It's still brighter than halogen bulbs, and why do you need reverse lights in sunlight o_O

Thank you for the info! Been meaning to get these CREE since Blulabel showed me his, but it's one of those things I've never really focused on. Going to order a pair and add it to my "Spring install" pile!

I was literally just researching Cree LED reverse bulbs.. there are a ton out there, and I'd like to find a reputable brand which will last.

Why don't you? 1 of the 2 main functions of reverse lights is to notify other drivers of your rearward movement. Backing out of a parking spot or a driveway comes to mind as where this is most important. As bright as they are at night, non-OEM LEDs often washout in sunlight so from a safety standpoint, I was wondering how visible these actually were during the day.

I can tell you from seeing my reverse LEDs in daylight that they're still extremely visible because there are leds surrounding the cree reverse lights that gives more than enough light output during the day. My car is still in the shop till next week so I can't take pics for you. When I do get my car back, I'll take a few pics for you.

Thanks for the link Nomad. I just bought a pair, because I always complain about how I can't see my reverse lights even at night. It pisses me off and is kinda scary actually...

I ordered up the JLC Cree LED lights, I can't wait to get them. I hope I can get some better visibility at night with the back up camera.

Awesome, thanks.

I haven't noticed too much, but has anyone ever noticed other high end cars and what their reverse lights are from the factory? Like other Acuras, BMW, Lexus, Mercedes, etc.? Even though HIDs, LED taillights, and even LED license plate lights are fairly common with them, do any of them have LEDs for reverse lights too? If not, then I wonder why they haven't. If they can make brake lights viable in LED, why not reverse lights? Seems like an easy upgrade.
