Smoked L.E.D third brake light installed

I'll get some pics of her in the sunlight tomorrow. All in all I'm pretty happy with it, plugs right into the factory harness and took a whole 5 minutes to install.

Yes, but mostly from directly behind the car. They are somewhat directional so from of to the side they aren't as bright. But you want the people directly behind you to see it anyway, that's kinda what its for after all. The more I look at it the more I like it.

I sealed mine with the supplied weather stripping and went at it with a pressure washer, no issues for me. Bummer they didn't work out for ya.

So did mine. But I didn't install it right I know exactly where it's coming from.. A kink in the strip itself. Going to take care of it when I get home.

That sounds like an easy fix. Hey how many miles do you have on your car?
