Heres a vender that sells cheaper ones, they don't use the CREE LEDs, or have a lifetime warranty, and not sure if resistors are needed, but they have a yellow front option.

Check my earlier post, V-Leds has Awesome rear RED led turn signals.
Do they fit in the housing? They look longer than the cree ones posted above...

Also do we need 25w or 50w for turn signals? I found some cheaper crees online elsewhere (I'll post if they work out)

Curious how you actually get access to these bulbs. Can they be reached from the engine bay?

Anyone find decent quality bulbs that aren't $90 BMW bulbs that fit our TLX nicely?

For anyone looking for a cheaper option for the white led signal bulbs, I found these from China and should have them in a few more days. I will be trying them in my TLX once I get it, lol.

Here is the link, could be a good option instead of the pricy ones off the BMW site:

I will let everyone know if they work and don't cause the hyper flash as well.

Anyone tried these for rear turn signals? Supposed to have built in load resistor and CANBUS compatible.

You will get hyperflash.... Needs new or modified flasher relay.

Darn, it says it has a built in load resister. I wish Acura would have done all LEDs everywhere.

Something to look into, might or might not work. I have LED stop/tail/turn/hazzard bulbs in the rear of the Cobra. They will do a normal blink without resistors as long as I don't use LEDs in the front turn signals.

Rear has four light housings - two are running & brake, the other two are running & turn/hazzard. Each of the four light housings has a single LED bulb in it that functions as both the running light & the bright light for stop/turn/hazzard

This has held up as valid for all of the guys in the FFR cars that have tried it.

Interesting, but all my experiences with my german cars which have been very, very fussy about LED bulbs has left me scarred. (I really don't need notifications that my DRLs, reverse, or license plate bulbs are out)

Thanks for updating the thread. Could you upload a video of your front and rear signals? Im looking into doing the LED conversion but im not too sure about trunk thing.

I'll try getting a video tomorrow.

To me, the hardest part of the install was carefully getting the tail lights removed since they are on there pretty good due to the clips, a trim/panel remove tool would be recommended. After that, you just need to remove all of the electrical tape on the wiring to find the correct 2 wires inside the trunk to connect the resistor to.

Fronts look a little blue in the video, but they're white

On some of the newer cars they do not have relays for the signals anymore they may be built into the main computer controller. I even called Acura parts to see if they could find the relay for the signals and they were not able to find it in the parts catalog. Part of the issue may be that the car is still new and no one ordered that part yet. How difficult is it to add the resistors to the front if I were to go that route? Any help would be appreciated and thanks for getting back to me with the information.
As I understand it, the relay is integrated into the MICU which is part of the under dash fuse box. Years ago I ran across a write up where someone with a Honda Ridgeline cut/removed the OEM Shunt resistor and soldered in resistor(s) so that the MICU would receive the expected load reading when LEDs were installed, but now I can't seem to find the discussion.
