I didn't even notice the price. I just found them and posted them up lol. That is ridiculous though. I would NEVER spend $125 on something like that.

I have LED taillights, how do I get them to stop blinking so fast? I have read you have to install resistors. but where can I buy them, and where are they installed?

With the exception of my trunk light, I don't have any incandescent bulbs in my car. Most LEDs you get from ebay are going to be pretty dim, I have a set of 3157 SMD LED bulbs from v-leds.com. They're pricey, but they make my sequential turn signals "pop" more since LEDs are instant on/off. I tried running load resistors at first, but it seemed like a fire hazard since they get pretty hot. I switched to a solid state flasher relay and that cured the fast blink issue for me.

These are the ones you need: http://www.v-leds.com/Exterior-LED/B...72043-1-2.html

They come in pairs

Link please?
EDIT: nvm I skipped over the above post. The issue with those is that the LEDs are set in a unidirectional housing, meaning it won't reflect against the rest of the tail light housing, so I'd think that they would be a bit dim. I could be wrong though, so would you mind posting a picture of them on during the day so that I can make a comparison?

I got LED sequential tail lights on my car. The kit I used lets the brake light work like brake light (the all come on at the same time) but does the sequential thing with I hit the blinker or hazards. It was kind of pricey but it was exactly what I was looking for so I coughed up the $250. The install was easy. I got mine at Mustang Project - Discount Mustang Restoration Parts LED Tail Lights 2005 2006 2007 Mustang Parts

Has anyone here tried to create their own boards with LED's for a more professional look?

For instance here are some custom retrofitted LED boards on an older maxima:
