Tail light warping problems?
 
ok... i'm tired of searching...

people on "the other site" have pretty much sworn to the fact that '05-'07 tinted tails WILL warp... end of story...

true? not? who has stock '05-'07 tinted tails?

I just sent some to get tinted and if they warp.. ima be really sad...

I personally don't like the look of the LED tails, so thats not an option, so please no "get LED's!" you just take up space and annoy me :slapfight:

haha kidding.. but really... can we please lay this to rest?

I'm wondering this also, since I am purchasing another pair of OEMS to get tinted by daniel.

My mind is made up already, and no LEDs for me. (for now)

Get L.... wait j/k. But I read about it also and opted for LEDs. But I only think it was people in the hot states that had problems with warping. Also they went Dark on the tint. I think med tint on stock tails works fine.

Yeah i sent a pair of ebay tails to him.... so i can replace all 3 lenses (3rd brake light included)

If you don't likt the LED tails just get the LED bulbs in the stocks and you'll be good...

I think thats what also caused the warping. The LED bulbs are hotter then the oem bulbs, arent they?

I would say a big fat NO on the drilling holes... IMO Just don't put cold water on them when theyre hot. Mine are dark and I have no problem. I've had them for about 3 months.

Led's barly give off any heat at all. the holagen bulbs get hot. Just the earlier wk's with the 2 bulb tails are the one's I'd be concerned with.

To make it easier for me I just went with the LED's. I havent heard of one problem with those warping and i told daniel i wanted them dark.
