2010-2012 Smoked Tail Lights

Hey guys! Check these out. They would eliminate the gap issue people have putting 2013-14 tail lights on a 2010-12. Looks good from the pictures.

I personally think those look horrible and cheap once they're on the car. I've seen someone around town with them and they just look like a bag of sharpies leaked all over the car.

Some may like it. Not for my taste, unfortunately.

I would have to agree. In certain angles you can see ripples of the red through the "smoke". AM sells a vinyl decal kit to do the same effect on your stock tailights. Although, still cheap looking imo.

While I would love to have those tail lights, I'm not about to spend $900/light plus a rear bumper to make them fit right.

I went with the Raxiom Aeros. Totally different layout, I love em. Here's a pic of them after I put them in a long time ago:

It looks like if they were going for OEM they missed the mark since the reverse lights are not white. Glad to hear from someone who saw them in person. This should help anyone who spotted these on eBay, were in the market and wondered if they were worth it.

Do the raxiom's still keep the sequential turn signal feature?

I personally like them a lot. Don't think you can go wrong if they're really cheap at the show.

I'm hoping to get them for around $200 there, think that would be good?

That's about what they go for. They're just the plastic housings. your factory bulbs and wiring stay put, you just turn and pop them out of the old factory housings. I upgraded the reverse light to Raxiom's LED when I swapped mine out, looks really nice and actually helps me see a bit better when backing up at night

Can get them on sale online with AM for $189.99 usually and then forum discount would take down to around $178.50. I'd look to get them for around that or less at the AM show.

Do you think Am will have discounts? I'm worried that the stuff discounted there will barely be less than our forum discount

Not too sure. I've never been to AM show (maybe next year). I'd think they'd have discounted items but it might be around same as forum discount. You might find an owner willing to sell a pair on the cheap though.
