UMMM Are you serious? or you gee-ing up?

the globes that came with the clear tail lights light up more of an orangy red colour.. everybody notices that when driving behind my car at night time.. -so to fix it i just baught standard replacement brake globes and they shine a heck of alot more redder now... looks brighter and better... :wink: 8-)

they will soon turn pink again dude. as soon as the globe heat gets to the glass they will start fading..

time for an LED upgrade :)

im not too sure about that regie... the globes that came with the tail lights were pink the second i installed them.. :roll: these definatly look better...

PS.. all the reflectors in the pic were going to be used to experiment with the reflector part in the tail light... once i figure out how to pull the lense apart.. :wink:

Slightly a bit of topic but with the Darker aftermarket tail lights do they glow brightly coloured or are they glow dull?
