The new video with them on the shop car looked significantly brighter than my lights even with the same smoked lens but wasn't sure if that was due to the lightning in the video.
You're always going to have a problem seeing the lights clearly if you're going blacked-out, tbh. It's a small sacrifice (and possible risk) to get that sexy look

I actually have another question for you @FT-86 SpeedFactory

After browsing your website earlier I noticed that you are selling the bottom reverse lights separately from the tail lights. Are these true plug-and-play like the tail lights are? In other models (the Valenti's included), you have to do some splicing to get the rear fog lights to work, so I'm wondering if you have to do that with yours as well.

Do you have an updated timeframe on when the ft86 special editions might be in stock? they look great
@FT-86 SpeedFactory

EDIT: Just placed an order for the FT86SpeedFactory special editions with the black housing/clear lens. They looked so good I couldn't resist As soon as they are in stock and on the car I'll get some pics in this thread!

Ultramarine, Was going for a blue/black overall theme so the black housing will still work but the smoked lenses on the old were a bit too much for me.

The reverse light function is a true plug and play. But because USDM cars didn't come with a 4th brake light, you'll need to splice two wires into on of the tail lights to get the 4th brake light function.

We'll post a video in about a week or two. Still have to wait for them to arrive first.

Wonder how long they're going to take to get in like the user above. If we could get an ETA, I would love to purchase a set.

I can't wait to get these after my wheels come in!

I am still on the fence between the black ones and the Shade/Gold ones.

Since these use led for turn signals do i need a flasher relay? i might have answered my own question but any reassurance will do.
