most who have done it report great results. The LED option is unknown to me. I know some use LED for a third cyclops light somewhere on rear window. But to replace BMW tailight bulbs with LED: i dont know. Did you search archives of both boards? i seems to remember someone experimenting with it. good luck.

Ordered a pair from superbrightleds.com. I put one in one side and left the incandesant in on the other. The regular bulb was brighter as more light gets reflected. The LEDs seem to be very directional and when you have them recessed and placed behind a lens, they are not at their best. Most of the bright LEDs I see are flush mounted and use only a clear lens.

So, save your $15. Clean up and refinish your reflectors, check your contacts, replace the lamps and you should see an improvement. Also, check your brake light switch, it is part of the whole circuit you know.

Not for brake lights, but 1156 LED Red bulbs are a good replacement for the rear running/tail lights. They provide brighter light than the standard 10w bulb, and produce no heat. Stick with regular bulbs for the brake lights.

Frank makes reference to this person during a transition in the song. I think it's hilarious and nobody else is using it, so it's mine, I tell you. MINE ALL MINE!!!

Love that Zappa. Too bad he's gone.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
