@anderssj wow what a difference!

I live off a country highway so visibility of my 914 to other drivers is a big thing, got my little box too and updated my older version to the newer boards, check out the density of the white LEDs compared to the previous iteration, the pics do not do them justice:

Bravo @Spoke another winning setup! The white 3D printed parts are also a good move, makes the board even more seamless under the lens (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

I installed my Spokeworksled.com tail/brake lights tonight. Easy to install and much more visible. I felt like I was risking my life every time I drove in the rain before the upgrade. Great product!

Well, I've joined the club. Got these yesterday, installed them this morning.

@spoke
Can I add front euro with blanking (does this mean the white portion turns off when you activate a directional) and not effect the dash light if I keep incandescent bulbs in the rear?

@BENBRO02

In general, converting to LED turnsignals will mess with your flasher relay. Do you have an early (separate L and R indicators) or late (single L/R indicator) tach? In either case, when you change to LED turnsignals, the flasher relay will not behave properly with the tach indicators. You need to swap out the OEM flasher relay with a modified EP26 LED-compatible flasher relay.

About the Euro front turnsignals, yes the white LEDs shut off when the turnsignal is active on that side. The Euro front turnsignals drop right into the US bucket although you do need a Euro lens with the clear bottom. Besides an LED-compatible flasher, all other bulbs can be incandescent including the tach indicators. I still run incandescent tach indicators.

Thanks for your explanation. I have a late tach

Just a quick bump and some praise for Spoke and his LED kits. He makes items to order. My package arrived early from his shipping estimate.

I outfitted all of my car (less fog lights) in less than an hour today. Everything was as simple as could be. The improved lighting performance is a huge safety upgrade for our little cars, IMO.

Thanks, @spoke!
