I have a question. Were the LED bulbs you were using before just forward firing or side firing + forward?

Todd, are the CREEs you have using spot lenses or the wide angle (astigmatic) lenses?

The 27 SMD bulbs are radial side-emitting and forward.

They are plano-convex lenses, wide-angle.

I love these lights, got a pair myself. I can completely justify the $40 so i can see through my rear tints without an issue.

Are you looking for the intensity as stock, a little brighter, or maximum output?
