damn.. those are nice. but too much for me. i think theres too many led's for the trunk lenses. i would be down for these but i have the ones mike made for the outside tails. i want to keep the same pattern throughout.
That is just glare that all cameras pick up. They are bright, but not too bright.
The setups I've done are dual-stage setups. The outer rings are dimmed when just the parking lights are on, but come on to full brightness (matching the brightness of the inside rings) when the brakes are applied.
This way, it is more apparent when the brakes are applied.
I'm doing another setup for a customer who is not a fan of the inner tails having rings, and wants to use OEM lenses, so my configuration is the same, but instead, all LEDs are on low power while the parking lights are on, and all LEDs go to full brightness when the brakes are applied.
for those of us who own lights that arent modded by LED's, when our lights are on (just on, not braking), both the inner and outter lenses are lit up by a bulb. The same four bulbs (inner/outter) light up during braking.
I think a better look would be to change our tail-lights so that when we brake, all four (inner/outter) regular bulbs dont light up, and are instead replaced by a single circular band of LED's in each of the four lenses (much like the first pic of this thread). The four regular bulbs would be illuminated the whole time, and so would the LED's, but the only one's to get brighter during braking would be the LED's, while the inner bulbs of each lense just remain lit.
Its basically replacing all the little LED's that fill in the middle of the circle with our regular bulbs. Might be interesting to try out.
