right, I think they were pissed because there idiot bodyshop men broke it and they didnt want to pay for it. But they knew that I had told them about it, but I guess they never told the workers. I didnt even notice untill I was leaving. oh, and also when they replaced my bumper, they spray painted it while it was on the car, so in turn the front light was covered in red paint, but they cleaned it off. Idiots.

how did you get a free set of streetglows?

My friend said that if I were to install his Streetglows on his car for free, he'd buy me a set and we could install both sets in his garage. One week later I was sportin free Blue Line neons in red. Shazzam.

But I'm thinking about upgrading to the Gold Line series. Just need more light, ya know?

before everyone starts ripping, to each his own

personally, I am not that big a fan of neons, but I have seen a few applications that I did like...99% sucked but the 10 or so good looking ones all had this in common:

1. dark paint...black or close thereto
2. only used at night...cheezy when used at anything less than pitch black
3. blue only...red is the runner up, but by a long shot...no cheezy blue either, blue blue
4. high quality install...edges of lighting on ground parallel to edges of car, clear crisp lighting given off

other than that, I think they all look like garbage. I have seen a few "accent neons" put behind intercoolers or inside hood scoops...they can look cool sometimes...interior neons suck, period...so do license plate ones

Im not a big fan of them, only i think for if your car is in a show. I dont like the strobes and all the stuff, but im into like maybe a body kit, def rims and a carbon fiber hood , im into all engine work!! making it faster but in the long run if i bought some neon id go all pink just to make people say WTF i dunno!1

I think one neon like a blue or sumthing would look good in the front grill if you had a big intercooler, and on the intercooler it said FORD SUX real big !!

I would recommend LED's if your going to go with undercarriage lighting. I had a set of neon lights under my car and I was driving down a road and a huge piece of rock flew up and cracked one of my neon tubes. LED's are very hard to break and they are much brighter and you can even get the ones that flash in different patterns too!

you should check Tennesee highway patrol page, see if they are allowed or not before you even buy them. you could get a fix it ticket, and have to take them off something to think about.
