From what I understand, if you order online, it can take 2-3 weeks. If you call them up, you can get them shipped from Cali, should take about 3-5 days

Hey Blue,

Another person with a failure of the JDM lights. Got two new ones for front turn yesterday. Installed and thrilled. Then about 12 hours later..... I noticed in the reflection that it was no longer operating. I checked when I got home. It would not fire on the drivers side. I pulled it out and when I would replace it, the "white" section of it would fire for half a second or so, and then nothing.

So.... back to Amazon. Search for something else I guess. You have such good luck.... but many others seem to have failures. What is your magic? :)

honestly, I have no clue. I was wondering that myself. All of my bulbs still work and the only one that has issues is one of my switchbacks. And it's a weird issue because the bulb itself came apart but all of the LEDs work. A little super glue and it will be good as new.

I might be missing it, but what are you guys doing with the waterproof cover? Tossing it or cutting it? Does it mater?

The bulbs themselves have sealing o-rings at their base's to keep moisture and whatnot out their respective reflective compartment, so the dust caps just keep carp out of the rest of the housing. Do what you're comfortable with.

Is this the right bulb orientation for the led high beams? The instructions are kind of vague on this. I tried to work it out logically but could make a case for either orientation.

Just to clarify, the LEDs are one up and one down, not at an angle?

This is the page that confused me.

correct.

What that page is telling you is that these head lights have a dual setting. If you pull the little ring, you can have the bulb on setting A or B. A is supposed to be used for a projector housing and B for a reflector housing. However, you can set it up anyway you feel gives you the best.

Yeah, I obsessed over it for a little while and tried both settings. I could not tell a difference either way. Thanks for the quick replies.

My jdmastar are left and right in my low beams projectors. That is correct right? They didn't seem to fit any other way.

Awesome info on here although i can't seem to find the genssi 9005 led bulbs. I'm guessing they removed that option from their amazon store? eBay shows them for 1159.99 that can't be right!
