There really wasn't much to the install. replace bulbs with LED bulbs, install load resistors with crimp connectors...

Using resistors, doesn't that mean you are still using as much electric as the OEM bulbs?

Unfortunately, the turn signal flash is controlled by the computer. I wanted a solid state flasher, but there is no flasher to replace. It draws a lot less when just the parking lights are on, but draws the normal amount of current when the signals are flashing. Overall I think it is drawing less energy, as it still takes advantage of the LED power savings when the headlights are on.
