I'm new here :)

Hello everyone,
I'm the newest member of your community. I've joined because I have much to contribute along the line of LED lighting mods. I'll be more than happy to help out with your questions. I drive an 08' Yaris and I'm curious to learn more ways to maximize its efficiency. Happy to be here!

Welcome to ecomodder! I look forward to some good LED discussion, since I still haven't gotten around to doing a full conversion myself.

What exactly do you mean by "I have much to contribute along the line of LED lighting mods"?

Do you mean you know a lot about LEDs or do you sell them?

I know that personally I have spent close to $75 in LED products for my car and would love to find a cheaper source than eBay.

I've been looking at switching out all my turn signals with LED repl. bulbs but haven't pulled the trigger yet. I'm not so concerned with energy efficiency where they're concerned, I just don't like changing the bulbs.

On the wife's car, with the daytime running lights, switching to LEDs would have a probably imperceptible but real effect - that and the damned car eats bulbs like they were candy.

I do both. I own ElementalLED.com, however I'm happy to help out regardless of any purchase or not.

What kind of products are you finding on Ebay? bulbs, flexible LED strips, running lights?

Welcome on EM.com

I can't wait to see pictures of your mods.

Did you calculate the ROI of a LED mod ?

Here are :
Don't hesitate to ask questions
