[ROVERNET - UK] Brighter Brake Lights?

The biggest problem I would see is that the P6 lamps have reflectors 
behind the bulb, and the led bulbs do not shine backwards. So while 
they might be brighter, they may look decidedly weird and/or actually 
be not as bright as the incandescent bulbs.

Otherwise, great idea, they will last forever and they illuminate 
much much faster than incandescent (few milliseconds vs around a 
tenth of a sec)
