Flashing red lights are illegal in many states. You’ll have to check your state laws. Pointless to get them then get pulled over by a cop at night looking for a dui.
that is true. however, we use them on motorcycles via a relay and are life savers.

both my ducati and triumph bikes have them and wakes up that stupid driver behind me who may be on the cell. plenty of times i've come to a stop and cop right behind me just fine.

This, I emailed a while back but never got a response. Need some for my coupe :)
Been waiting for any brakelights for the coupe for over two months now. They got the sedan/hatchback brake lights back in stock a while ago. I wonder what the hold up is?

I'm not so sure I'd want flashing brake lights anymore, but some super bright lights for sure.

If you want them to be bright just get white 1156 LEDs. Red will not be bright at all in the red plastic. It’s a scam. Actually I’m getting ready to Put my white LEDs in I’ll send you a pic when its done today.

I assume the OEM bulb is just a clear bulb. I figured a red LED would give off a deeper/better red color through the housing than a white LED, but I'm interested to see what yours looks like.

A red LED will give off a brighter red through the red plastic, than a white LED will.

White light is made up of several colours, red included. By putting it behind red, it will filter out all the colours except red, so some of the light output is filtered out, so the actual light output is reduced by only allowing the red in the white light to come through. By putting a red LED behind red, the full output of the light is allowed through, so you get the maximum amount of light emitted from the LED.

I have put both a white and red LED behind red plastic, and the red appears more washed out from the white LED than the red LED.

No there’s a YouTube video of a guy putting red LEDs into his coupe and it looked EXACTLY like oem as he only did one side. I’ve

This right one is LED. it’s light outside but there’s a good differemce. Plenty of people have said the red ones don’t increase brightness at all.

I wanna know for us hatchback guys, if we will have the option for our middle third brake light, as a package or stand alone option. I'm assuming the latter to support all body types.

I believe he’s totally swamped catching up on orders. I’ll ping him and check in.

I have his bright brake LEDs installed a few months ago, show here before and after. Last pic has all 3 bulbs installed: X backup, signals and brake. Pics may not show well, but brake lights are good!

We are continuing to work on getting the blinking brakes situated. It will be a RED LED.

LED vs Halogen

LED is a brighter output and will also produce a deeper red than a white LED.

The white LED will give you a red/pink/orange tail light .
