Thumbs down Lumen Can BUS Bulbs

Installed them today and it went really bad, first off the drivers side inside bulb is the biggest PITA to get too i spent and hour trying to get the socket in lol but then figured it out, so i removed the old 3157 and put the new can bus lumen 3157s in and at first they looked good and bright brakes lit up like a christmas tree and went off nice, then i turn the signals on and noticed the backs were working fine but the fronts were hyperflashing and same thing inside the car, along with a CHECK BULB RIGHT AND REAR MESSAGE, then stepped on the brake while the signals where on and no brake light at all, called Carid and gave them a piece of my mind and they said that i need a resistor seperatley wired in which is bull crap because he told me this wasnt the case when he sold them to me, or else i wouldnt have got them lol, just be aware that these bulbs suck and will throw a code out, had to put all the stockers back in

I saw the original ad for these bulbs. It said that they wouldn't throw a code because of the way they were made. Not cool in my book. They need to tell you ALL that you need before you buy them.
