During the day they are gonna be hard to see no matter what so dont stress yourself out. At night they should light up like normal or atleast mine do. Mine are really dark too...


Just live with it...its illegal anyways lol.

LED bulbs are not brighter than their incandescent counterparts. The light is more "pure" but intensity is nowhere near as bright. That's why no one can see you brake at night. Even with stock tails, LED bulbs in the brake lights are hard to see. My friend nearly rear-ended me on the highway cause he couldn't see my LED brake bulbs light up. I changed back to incandescent right away.

He was/is asking for a better picture - ie better resolution. A picture that isn't resized to fit the constraints of this website (ie your original picture).

As for your lights.. how many coats did you use? I know mine are dark, but I live with it.. I just am thankful my spoiler leds light up, at least I have some visible brake lights during the day At night, the tinted brake lights can be seen semi-normally
