Does anyone make LED boards for the front amber lights yet? I did a little bit of looking but didn't find anything. Seems like it would be a simple board to make up and since my search was not exhaustive I thought I'd see if anyone knows of a supplier that didn't pop up in my search.

I ended up going for the DRL and amber turn LED in one, I used the unit that I took off of my edge and it fit the hole pretty well. I'm having some issues getting it to work correctly but think I will figure it out eventually and think it'll be worth it in the end.

Looks like those will fit good once done and the color switch will be really cool. But confirms my suspicion that no one makes dedicated LED for the fonnt amber lights.

Are you looking to just get the bulb? I am sure there is something that just runs as a turn signal but doubt it is built for our cars specifically

Reason I ask is you can just do switchback LED bulbs that stay in the stock housing, are white when on then go amber to turn. Otherwise there is something like this you can just remove your housing and run these:

I don't want to just change the bulbs, don't think a single LED replacement module for an incandescent bulb would work well in the stock housing in terms of light output. Figured since it's a pretty simple design, that there might be a replacement LED board....maybe with a scrolling option. Since there are taillight options, we know our cars aren't completely ignored, but I guess just the back end gets the love.

There isn't a board that I'm aware of, I really like the way mine came out as far as sitting inside the housing. You should be able to use that link and be pretty happy with the setup

Part numbers, or any way to search for the parts?

Guessing they are off of a newer Ford Edge. Not sure if its just certain trim packages that get the LEDs or the whole run but I'd start just trying for find Edge parts.

Mclellan83, what are the led parking lights you have at the bottom?

Hey everyone...I agree that a switchback LED of Amber and DRL White would be ideal. I find it hard to believe that this isnt available is a generic size of 16 x 1 x 1.5 or so...I am on the hunt as well. I don't feel like making a new hole in the nose facia to accomodate a DRL.

Mclellan83 I really like the look of that nose

Bumping this thread. GNS performance has ambers for Buicks. Any idea if they are close to same size as the Montes? Looks like plug goes in from the top instead of the rear but that can't be too hard to adjust in the wire routing. http://www.gnsperformance.com/electrical-g-body

Looks like the mounting is different between the two, but I can't see if/how different the size and shape are. No Regals around for me to compare to, either.


Sometimes you just need a bigger hammer...
