TapTurn Flasher Module

So I decided I wanted to change my signal bulbs to LEDs and didnít want to have the fast-flash or add a load resistor. I read on some comments around here about the TapTurn flasher unit which is a direct plug-and-play replacement to our factory flasher. I ended up purchasing it from the TapTurn web-site (TapTurn - home) and figured Iíd add some feedback & photos.

The unit came with very clear instructions. The factory flasher is located under the steering wheel column behind the little card/coin pocket (note, I drive a right hand drive). This pulls directly off and the flasher is visible. I was able to reach from behind and disconnect/remove it fairly easy.

The part fits perfectly. It is the exact same dimension and the plug clicks in nicely.

The flash speed is the same as OEM and can be used with both LED and Halogen bulbs. I currently have Phillips Ultinon LEDís in the rear and the stock bulbs in the front. The TapTurn flasher module also adds the function of 3-flashes in one direction when the stalk is gently tapped (like euro cars) and then auto shuts off.

Some other functions include a Slow Motion flash for emergency lights and a ďWig-WagĒ function that alternates between the left and right sides. These are activated by having the signal stalk clicked in either the left or right while the car is running and the emergency lights are on.
The part cost me $59 USD with shipping. I should note there are versions with some more functions such as strobe signals, additional hazard patterns and arrival/departure lights but I decided I didn't need those.

Used one before, but currently in my garage because I find the 3-flash to be triggered a lot more easily than I'd like at times, and while you can cancel it by tapping again, it just feels kinda annoying I had to do that.
