These new ones i got are also from ebay hehe, but i did more research on q5 vs r5, and it looks as if the r5 give off more light lumes.
Here is the link

Please post up pictures when you get these. I am interested in buying then but I would like to see them in action first.

Just get these, for another 10 dollars you get a lifetime warranty and I know they will work! I've had mine for 2 months or so now and they work great, no bulb out errors! Plus if you have a problem with the bulb you can call and speak directly to the guy on the other end and he will ship you a new bulb if you ever have problems. Great customer service at Retro.

I am very interested to see how these 7w r5 vs 5w q5 compare.

I want as much back up light as possible

IF you don't like them, I have a buddy that just pulled the same bulbs I have out of his 2011 F250 as he sold it yesterday, he had them in for a month, so I'm sure he'd make you a deal on them.
