Why Your LED Lights in Your Euro Car Flicker (and why it’s OK)

But for those who have seen the couple of seconds of strobing, you’re not the only one. We here at iJDMTOY do get a couple of calls from customers who claim it’s a flickering effect.

Flair and Visibility With BMW LED License Plate Light

One car light that many people don’t give much thought to is the rear license plate light; outside of looking at our rear view mirror and side mirrors, we don’t pay much attention to what’s behind us nor can we see it. Since the 1970s, every manufactured vehicle in the United States come equipped with rear license plate lights. Because this is standard equipment on our vehicle, we put it by the wayside in favor of other “sexy” car lights. But that doesn’t mean license plate lights can’t have flair either.

When the people think about the GTR, most people think about the Nissan GTR nicknamed, “Godzilla.” They believe that this is the only GTR around and that the name GTR only belongs on a Nissan, but little do people know that they weren’t the first ones to put a GTR badge on a car.

Below, you can see the three components (from top to bottom):
