Has anyone heard about these led bulbs "Philips 12839REDB2 Intense Red Vision LED Stop/Tail light, 2 Pack" or has anyone use them. I just order them off amazon since I need to replace my tail light housing might as well swap out the bulbs also order white one for reverse lights

I don't know about swapping in LED bulbs for the stop/tail lights; the Metris uses a single-filament bulb and varies the brightness for the tail and stop functions. I do second the use of LEDs for the backup bulbs; I got mine from Diodedynamics. They're great!

I order it off amazon going to see if they work. I got red bulbs for the tail light and turn signals and white for back up also got a red bulb for the rear fog

Yup, the LEDs don't draw enough so the CANBUS, thinks you have a burnt out bulb. They will work fine but to get rid of the error you'll have to install resistors in line.
