Rear brake light and spoiler

I recently put on the 3pc flush spoiler. When driving behind my car, you cannot see my rear brake light. Do any of you know of anything where I can move my brake light so that it is at the top of my rear window, and not the bottom? I'm not in the mood to be pulled over 24/7 because of it...

i don't think u'll get a ticket for not having the 3rd brakelight on. i think having 2 should be enough. i'm not a cop so i dunno.

Doesn't that depend on how high the car behind you is, whether they can see the brake light? If you are that concernec, get a spoiler with a ligt of its own. The OEM spoiler has a brake light and actually eliminates the stock third brake light.

and the OEM one comes painted and wired for you... just mount it and put in the new springs to handle the heavier trunk lid and it comes with a wire taht will patch your 3rd break light to the spoiler light... in all it took about an 60 min to open the box and install the OEM spoiler.

Besides it looks much nicer than those silly aluminum ones [IMG]i/expressions/laugh2.gif[/IMG][IMG]i/expressions/laugh2.gif[/IMG] Oh yeah, I wasnt talking to you if you have one of those...
