OK decided to try out these LED turn lights, because they are the only ones that I found that will fit the stock housing, without being a garbage bulb: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...A1HUKFKSGZID4U (hope I don't see the same fate as Natalya's brake light! Pretty worried about my cheap no-name LED adventures since!)

LED on left and stock on right. 4w vs 25w I believe. Was tough getting this pic (blink timing VS my phone's slow camera)



The blinkers are fine right now, but once I get the front ones swapped, I want to make sure the blink is proper and not annoyingly fast. I pulled apart the stock relay and looked at it, then did a bit of research. Seems S2000 owners had replaced the metal bar with a 0.1 ohm resistor, so I'll be doing the same.



Waiting on the other 2 to come in to swap them out (ordered different time). Mostly did these because I like to have the flashers going on the highway (80MPH zone and I go 40-60MPH, 50-55 average) so brighter and more efficient? Sign me up!
