    awesome, but damn, $90 for bulbs? it says, "These bulbs labeled "7440" and will fit any 7443, 7444, 7505 bulbs style housings. They will fit any housing (DRL, fog light, reverse light, etc...) that is sized between 23mm - 29mm in opening diameter. "

    So i'm giong to look for a 7440 bulb on amazon. The fog bulbs I got are awesome, so maybe same manufacturer

    EDIT: and LMAO, i already ordered some bulbs from this thread that were supposed to be for the DRL, but i don't have DRL on my sport S, but they apparently will work "

    Any update on this. I’m assuming you are trying to get both lights white as DRL and the turn signal amber.

    unfortunately nothing. DRLs are amber and turn white when lights come on. Also, they blink correctly outside both front and rear but inside show bulb out warning and rapid flash on the dash inside. Using Tazer but didn’t fix it.

    I just installed LED switchbacks from Oracle today. I have a Sport S with no max tow so just have the single bulb in the fender. I'm not having any rapid flash (used tazer to update to LED) but I was disappointed in the DRL being amber. Thought it was going to be white. I called Oracle and they said they don't think there is a way to make it shine white on the Sport. If you set the DRL to "turns" with the tazer it is telling the computer to send power to the turn signal which is amber. I can't find any other setting to make it send a signal to the white light. So, IDK... Just turned off DRL for now. Still waiting for my v4's for the heads and fogs, at least everything will match then lol

    Just a thought, I did get a rapid flash briefly after I initially changed the settings in the tazer. But after two sleep cycles it cleared out. Did you try that? After full reboot, turn off, open/close drivers door, wait for dash to turn off, then start again?

    did you just set front turns to LED on Tazer for no issues with the blinkers? I did that as well but still have it showing in the dash. Must be the bulbs themselves having the issue even though the bulbs themselves do not hyperflash.

    also did the reset as well. Guess I can try it again tomorrow

    Yeah, basically. When I called Oracle they said I probably didn't need to do it but it was already set and everything was working so...

    I wonder if these putco led’s could be used to replace the halogen tail light turn signal/ brake bulbs?
