Re: Opposed to the advice i got earlier...my new tails

aftermarket tails for our cars are ugly as ****. Looks like you picked the best ones though. I personally hate them all..OEM or JDM is the way to go

All you need now is one of those fake dogs with a rhinestone collar that matches your purse and your taillights. Sorry friend, those look terrible.

Re: Opposed to the advice i got earlier...my new tails

gb you know those tails for the coupe, they have the red top, red bottom, with clear stripe through the middle? the ones everyone has a soft spot for?
i know you know the ones. they look almost like 04-05 coupe lights but the clear stripe.

anyway the top of those ones is leds, do you remember by chance how reliable those leds are? what type? or what feedback for those ones has been over the years?

Re: Opposed to the advice i got earlier...my new tails

those are the good leds, square shaped superflux style and very bright. the best you can hope for in aftermarket tails. they also have the ones that look exactly like 04-05 oem tails except with leds in the top too.

Re: Opposed to the advice i got earlier...my new tails

To the OP: I used to have those tails. They worked great for about two years, then I lost a chunk of LEDs, like Gearbox mentioned.

I bought a set of the other type with the square superflux-type LEDs and I like them so far, the brand is Eagle Eyes.

I love how the hate continues though, half of the people on here can't just accept that some people have a different style than their own. Kudos for rocking your own style man, I hope your lights last longer than mine did!
