The set I have is dying. Looking for recommendations - preferably by those who have had them for some time. I like the cool white look of the LED over the stock bulbs.

Yep, I‘ve had the Diode Dynamics for about a year and like ’em a lot.

There were 3 brightness levels available, I chose the middle one. If I were to buy another set I’d probably go with the brightest level. But the middle level works fine for me now.

Yes, I won a pair as MTM in May of 2015. They were good and customer service was great. However, after going though 3 sets, I need to look at something else. I had high hopes for the last set as they were clearly redesigned, but alas, it was not to be.

I have SuperbrightLEDs in ours. I also had them in the Cavalier for the license plate light, and have one in my Camaro's, as well. They've worked great for the few years I've had them.

Thanks. I'll give them a try.

I should add, the amber HP5 which has a heatsink has has been great. But the HP3 has been a disappointment.

I owe Diode Dynamics a public apology. Their bulbs did NOT fail. They simply developed a poor connection causing the problem. I discovered this while replacing them. A bit of wiggle-wiggle and tightening of connections, and they're functioning as good as new. The prior ones did fail, but the "Newly-upgraded (Fall 2017) constant-current circuit." ones are holding out.

While the socket connection they make could be improved, I'll note that the replacement LEDs I started to install were worse.

So, anyone considering an HP3, can buy with confidence they won't fail prematurely.
