Really? I've never had an issue with them. I'll ask Valenti about it but it's the first I've ever heard of it.

I have spoken to Valenti about the water leak and dead led. It WAS an issue in the past. They have since fixed the issues and its no longer a problem.

This is good news! So the side markers are V2 just like their first batch of tails that suffered similar issues. Thanks for the update

@LED86 Can you get access to a set of Valenti side markers. I would like a set for testing and would need them shipped to Canada

I'm not a vendor here anymore so can't say directly. See if you can send me pm (i can't send pm for some reason) or track me down on Google and contact.

I'm purely here for information sharing these days

Have you tried the Valenti HID kit?
I'm wondering why it has such a high price!!

Yes I've had a couple come through that I've installed. I don't have huge experience with HID kits but they felt very solid construction wise compared to a cheap kit. Very bright, and quiet compared to others that seem to scream from the ballast. From memory all made in Japan too. The cost I list is more a reflection of the crappy USD to AUD conversion these days

I'm wondering if I should start my own thread to discuss Valenti & Avest products so I don't derail OPs thread so much

Does anyone know which side marker color would look better on a silver BRZ, Chrome or smoked?
