Default Feeble backup lights...

Is there any 'miracle bulb' that will make the PT reversing lights actually shed some light on things? I replaced the stock ones with some CREE LEDs last year, but they are still pretty lame

That sounds very cool. But how long do you have to wait before they warm up enough to see to backup?

That was really my only issue with the HID's in my Sebring. They were plenty bright at 5000K and 55 watts. But on a cold morning it still took almost a minute for them to reach full brightness.

So here is what you do, Find which bulbs out there tickle your fancy, then find a car with the same wiring , then install the harness out of said car. OR find better lenses.
