Auxiliary Reverse light

OEM reverse brightness isn't that great. Tinting the rear window, plus smoking the taillights made it even harder to see out the back. Couldn't change to brighter reverse bulbs because I had the sealed hatch.

Oznium had weatherproof, LED floodlights and gave them a try. Bought two and mounted them (comes with 3M adhesive) on either side of the license plate frame. Wired to the taillight electrical connector (+ blue/blk, - brown).

Before and after pictures from outside and inside (excuse blurriness).

Big improvement for sure, great job hiding the wires! I like that you placed the lights about the same height of the camera. Very nice solution, I’m sure plenty of Peeps here are going to be interested. Thanks for sharing!

negb the part # is PHIL16W, but before you buy anything you'll want to make sure you can change them, seems not all the cars have the little access hatch you need to do a bulb swap
