99% of the underbody neons available are hosued in lexan tubing.. so if you wanna get underbody neons, they're all gonna be pretty much the same.

I agree with crazy j.
I've had the gold series for 7 months now, and I've only broken 1 tube.(the front one)
It was my fault though because I was trying to hurry through traffic to get into a parking lot, and I wasn't thinking about the incline.....needless to say, my front end bottomed out, my cd player skipped, and my front tube broke.
The only way you'll break a tube is if it hits something really hard and just right.

the street glow gold series has a life time warrenty only if the lexan tubing doesnt break, i have the Gold series Neon underbody kit from street glow and the only one i have had problems with was the front one, i hit a pretty big dip, but the only thing that happened was the mounting brackets broke so i have to hold it on with a zip tie now, i say go for the street glow gold series

I would only get Street Glow, but that is my main concern, the breakage.

I got the LiteGlow Professional Series and they are pretty good. The lexan housing is thick as a ****. I don't think I'll be breaking them any time soon...

My liteglows have the transformer built into the tubes, so I didn't have to worry about placement of those. btw, i got blue... It's pretty damn bright too...

I got Street Glow and It broke about 2 months after, a real pain in the [email protected]@, you have to be so careful with them on, I would not reccommend anyone getting them!

Someone needs to do a DIY on installing these things, it aint easy, and for the best look you'd need to drill some holes in your floor.

i got liteglow...and they suck. i broke a filament (not the tube) just by a simple pothole. Besides that, the distribution box keeps blowing fuses on me!
