Re: Need brighter tail lights!

remove the tint;


honestly there is no 'not so expensive' way. I bought VLEDS Platinum bulbs they are 79.99 per set of 2. so depending on your MY you will either need 1 set or 2 sets. oh and then you need resistors.

Re: Need brighter tail lights!

Take the tint off and get LED tails and leave it at that, taillight tint is dumb, its a great way to attract tickets.

Tinted tail lights are as cool as fake hood scoops.

Re: Need brighter tail lights!

keep the tint. if its film, imo, i would remove it and get them sprayed just the fact for the much cleaner look and get the bulb number for the tails and replace them with led's. thats my plan

Re: Need brighter tail lights!

Upgrade your existing bulbs to LED's from V-LED. That's what I did with my tinted tails and I get plenty of light output now. Rob's right through, they are not cheap and you will probably need resistors. (Mine's a WJ, with resistors on the turnsignal bulbs only...you may need more than that).
