So for the front turn signals, you only need the Lasfit switchbacks if you have an Elite? Otherwise, just a single amber lasfit 7440 will work?

Am I the only one here thinks that the Lasfit rear turn led’s are insanely bright? Like way to bright, even my neighbor asked me about it......I feel sorry for the people behind me....I’m pondering returning them and waiting to see if others will make a LED with no hyper flash built in

Now a days with everyone staring at their cell phones instead of what's going on in front of them, I don't think you can have lights bright enough to be noticed. I had insanely bright LED's tail lights on my Harley Davidson and still got hit by a kid armed with his mom's minivan and a cell phone while standing still at a red light. My guardian angle was riding with me that day - was able to walk away after being thrown 10 feet off my bike. Unfortunately, my 1 year old bike was totaled - bent the frame .
I plan on purchasing both the front and rear Lasfit turn signals (have their interior LEDs and backup LEDs and really like them).

Just checking in...does anyone know if ANY Passports use both filaments in the front turn signals? Will single filament bulbs work in the front signals?

I would LOVE if we could enable the low voltage on the front turn signals and use the Lasfit switchbacks and have the white low voltage on all of the time.

Any input would be great. (I just hate to order the more expensive switchbacks from Lasfit if I don't need to)

I took my rear amber Lasfit led’s out this morning......I will return them....

Anybody that has these please chime in, but I think they are way too bright at night.

I watch the people behind me when I turn and see their expression

I'm waiting for mine to be delivered. Just a thought but you maybe able to reduce the brightness by using something to cover some of the LEDs on each side... maybe black nail polish, paint, or even a black sharpie.... to reduce the amount of LEDs shinning.

Someone else in another thread mentioned that the front bulbs flash: bright, dim, bright, dim. I'd be afraid to run the LEDs constantly even on low because of possible heat buildup within the housing.

Ok!
Just finished reading most of the posts here and had a couple questions.

Can someone explain what hyperflash is? Also is there any real difference between 7440 and 7443 and what is that difference?

I agree with those concerned with brightness, a lot of LEDs are entirely too bright. Same goes for interior bulbs. nothing worse than opening your door at night and being blinded by your map lights. Not to mention if you actually needed to used them as map lights (not that anyone uses maps anymore, but rather to use them while driving), forget it, they'll blind you and cause glare on the interior of you windshield.

Has anyone used any of the more well known brands (Philips/Osram/Sylvania)? If so please list the bulb you've tried.
Thanks!

I'm no wiz bang at this stuff by any stretch of the imagination, I know enough to be dangerous and hopefully keep myself out of trouble. My simple understanding of hyperflash is just what it sounds like. When a LED is hyperflashing, it's blinking at a very high rate somewhat like a strobe light. The cause of hyperflash is because there is not a resistor in line within the system to control the flash rate. We've all seen them on the streets I'm sure, the kid driving a beater whom wants to look cool so they install LEDs and you see the blinkers going bonkers when they use them. Been there done that in my youth but with 60 series tires jacked up on a beat to death '69 Mustang - but I was cool!

I literally just got done installing front and rear LED signals from Lasfit today. Just my luck each LED I installed was installed incorrectly. By that I mean with the LED installed either the front and or rear plus the mirror LED would hyperflash. Take the LED out and turn it 180 reinstall it to correct "polarity" for better lack of terms and the LED worked correctly with the proper flash rate, easy peasy . The rear bulb in the Passport is a single filament incandescent. The 7440 configuration is a single filament configuration for an LED. The front bulbs on the PP are a double filament incandescent, and the 7443 are a double filament configuration for an LED. Could a 7440 work in the front? Maybe but I went with Lasfit recommend.

I can't vouch for the brands you mentioned with regards to LEDs though they are some of the more know manufacturers in tradition lighting. Remember cheaper pricing on LEDs generally mean they don't have built in resistors and will hyperflash, which will require the purchase of an in line resistor for each LED installed. Lasfit LEDs have built in resistors for a cleaner and much easier installation. Their website explains this better than I could ever do.

Gray_Beard......what do you think about your Lasfit led ambers?
It's only been a day with them but I do like them. Yes, they are bright. But I don't think their too bright especially when turning on the signals when on the move (lane switching, pulling into a parking lot, etc.) and definitely not too bright for day time driving. Night driving I would have the same philosophy for on the move maneuvers. Given a situation where you would be sitting at a red light waiting to make a turn and someone is behind me...l. would probably not run the signal while waiting for the cycle to get the green light but would turn on the signal once I start moving. Way too many distracted drivers here in Charlotte. seems like everyone has to check their cell phone the nano second traffic slows down. It's truly at pandemic levels.
Also not talked about to much is the front signals and yes they are bright also! Even with the textured lens. I really like this because the front signal are located I feel a bit too low given their purpose.

Here I thought the rapid flashing was from an installed device. Back in the late-late 90's i remember seeing an adapter/device of some sort that allowed you to control the flashing speed of your turn signals in a Sports Compact Car magazine. I always thought that's what people were using, guess i was wrong!

Turns out i have 2 pairs (front and rear) of Philips LED turn signals at home (I'm OOT right now). Back in 2015/2016 i was in Japan and purchased A BUNCH of LEDs for the CR-Z i owned at the time and NEVER installed any of the them other than the map lights... A buddy of mine just reminded me because he was asking for the LED high-beams i purchased there too (I probably spent $600-700 on LEDs out there). Both pair of turn signals are the same type T20 or WY21W which will likely only work for the rear turn signals, but I'm excited to check them out once i get home and find them (they're packed away somewhere).

One thing that occurred to me the other day is that i actually like how the incandescent bulb reflects in the clear housing when it's off. These philips bulbs wont provide that same effect so i'll likely continue to search for an LED bulb that does, even if just slightly. It's a stretch, i know, but im hopeful...

These led rear blinkers from Lasfit rock / I put them in at lunch and I bet people will notice as I’m in the driveway in full sun and they are bright so bring on the night 😎 ‘ well worth the 49 now i need the fronts 😂
Btw, if they don’t work right flip the bulb around and it really works like the guy said as I had my left one reversed
Do you have a link to the Lasfit lights that you used for the turn signals?

Beachbum07, here are the Lasfit lights I'm using in my PP Elite. They are excellent quality LEDs and I've been running with them for about 5-6 weeks now and very very pleased with them. There are certainly cheaper ones on the market but I'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for.

Thanks for the info and links!! I agree on paying a bit more and doing it right the first time. I hate double work.
