Nightshading New LED Tail Lights

'05 & Up Chevy Cobalt 2 Door Coupe LED Tail Lights IPCW:eBay Motors (item 200395262937 end time Dec-15-09 12:21:19 PST)

So I really like the middle and bottom left pair of tail lights.

I kind of want to Nightshade one of those sets of tail lights.

What are your opinions on doing this?

My car is all black, which pair would you recommend for my car?

Ever thought about keeping stockers and just nightshading them?

A LOT cheaper from what it looks like

Yes, but that doesn't answer my topic question. :P

I like the idea of LED tail lights. I just bought some nightshade tonight, and I was thinking... wouldn't it be great to have nightshaded tail lights that are LED's. I know there are cheaper models of these. I'm not looking so much at the price right now, just idea of doing this.

Personally I would have to say none of them. Your Better off cherishing that $315 in your pocket or purchasing a different mod that is of equal value.

I'll search for the thread. What did you end up paying for them? Maybe it's in the thread... but I was thinking since it says make an offer, maybe I can offer like 200 shipped or 180 shipped and see if they will take it. :P I have the money, but like cmeredith0 said, I would be better hanging onto the $315 for an equal mod. I fully agree that the price on these are WAY too high. I'd pay for these what I paid for my HID projectors, around $180-$210. It's just the ass of my car getting some love rather than my head. <-- That kind of sounds dirty, doesn't it? Oh well! You get the point, I hope. :P

I manage to find your thread. I like the look of it! I would think nightshading them over a few coats would look good. I didn't realize they stuck out so far.

save the money and just go out and buy some LED taillight bulbs. They have them at autozone and they make a big difference in the brightness of your taillights.
