Helix / K Shade Tail Light - Pics and Functional Overview - NEW Tail Lights

Helix has brought the ever popular Lexon K Shade tail lights to the USA. These plug and play lights feature a new unique tail light option for the Scion FRS and Subaru BRZ.

We like them here at FT-86 SpeedFactory. What are your thoughts?

Pictures of them below as well as a functional overview video from our very own Kevin.
