led, because of size of them and they arent glass to get broke and im sure a led will last alot longer and not to forget they are alot brighter so you might not need as many as you would compared to neons

led's x2.... they turn on instantaneously while neons can take a while to warm up the gases(takes a long time especially when it is cold outside.. and it gets cold here in ohio)... and leds draw less current as well.... so

LED:
--less current draw
--instantaneous turn on
--brighter than neons

alll u need is to do is wire them up to a toggle... + from the battery, + from the load(the led), and ground(ground to car and ground to leds).... and about wiring them a special way... i have not had a problem with wiring them liek i would an amplifier.. + to + remote to remote.. and ground to ground.......

go to cardomain.com and search for "LED" ... they have leds in every price range

LEDs also last a long time.

what?

why are you looking at resisters? you can get colors LEDs anywhere and they come in bars, sticks, or stand alone where you can place each one where you want it

you don have to wire anything in any special way....you wire ALL your POSITIVE (usually RED wire) togheter and all your NEGATIVE (usually BLACK) also togheter, and negative goes to ground, positive goes to 12v after passing trhu a switch...thats it....
