LED Turn signal lights?

Hi guys,

Have a 2002 ML320. Was wondering if anyone tried LED turn signal lights on the front & rear of the car? Would installing LEDs cause a problem as the car came with incandescents?
The reason I ask is that if the resistance in the circuit goes low, we could have rapid flicking (like a blown turn signal) - has anyone tried this?

Yes, you will have to install a resistor otherwise they will blink very rapidly...other than that, no issues...I installed LED tail lights, turn signal lights and reverse lights on my 2000 ML320...quite happy with the upgrade.

You can also find some LED bulbs that have the resistor built on you don't have to do any additional wiring...just plug and bulb, and its ready to go!
