I was happy with my LED backup lights at first, but over time I wished I had had the sense to go with the brighter LED option. The energy savings between my two LED options was miniscule. And eventually I realized I would like not just to signal other drivers that I am backing up, but a little more illumination of what I was backing towards. And now, after 4 years, one of the lightbulbs has failed. Lessons learned.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
