    LED turn signals installation

    Hi all,
    after the great success of installing auto folding mirrors in my 2013 MK7 Golf, it's time for the next cosmetic improvement
    I decided to install LED dynamic turn signals. The functionality can be seen here:

    My question is regarding the manufacturer to choose for these LEDs. Most of what I find online are Chinese unknown vendors. The only European manufacturer I've found is "Dyna Blink" but these are much pricier (150 pounds vs. 40 pounds for the Chinese ones).

    Has anyone here done their own research on the quality of any manufacturer, and maybe has some insights to the topic?
    Are their differences in looks, quality, reliability, etc. ?

    Right now I'm targeting these from AliExpress.


    Cheers!

    I got out of a 2012 T5 California the other day and that had power folding mirrors which are useful to us getting big cars through the door. I then got into a 2014 S6 Avant and it did not have power folding mirrors!

    Anyway a lot of these Chinnese LED’s are very unreliable and their legality is in doubt plus you will have to recode the central electrics unit to accept them, even so called CAN safe types.

How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    That's why I hope there is some Chinese manufacturer that is recommended.
    What I'm looking at are guaranteed plug & play.
