How many ohms and wattage are the resisters? I found them cheaper on ddMtuning

Pull them out and u will see, not that it matters, but if you still have your new car sticker that was on the back window, it shows in the standard features LED sequential taillights. They don't look high tech like Audi or BMW because the taillight housing is pretty basic

I actually pulled mine out and looked at it when I was tinting my tails because I was curious to see what they look like. There is a glass cylinder with the led diodes at the bottom of the base.
