FULL LED Rears
 
Ok, I asked this question in a different thread, but I didn't get an answer. It seems as if some people are partial to the R/C/R LED tails, which have LED trunk lights, but the Turn signals aren't LED. And the EE Tail lights are full LED, but the 'ugly' trunk lights are bulb based. Not to mention that R/C/R facelift style LED tail lights are only for pre-facelift cars. So my question is:

Is it possible to combine the EE LED tails with the LED trunk lights from the R/C/R led kit to have a full LED rear?

Lol I know it's a bad photoshop, that literally took 2 minutes. If I really wanted it to look better I'd have taken my time to get a better picture and actually taken the time to do it right. I'm actually not that bad, but I was lazy/tired.

Hence 'Quick' photoshop.

The first pic? Yea those are the LED Trunk lights from the LED R/C/R tails, but I wanted to know if it is possible to combine them with the Eagle Eye R/C LED Tails

FLPSIDE 02-10-2008 11:26 AM

Ok, a slightly better photoshop:

I don't thinks it's possible do to what you're asking for...i know a lot of people with LED taillights but not for the "trunk" lights...but your photoshop ideea looks great...good luck!

sillieidiot 02-11-2008 02:29 PM

yes it's possible. but i don't know where you'd be able to buy them separately, unless a r/c/r owner doesn't want his.

Well, if money weren't an issue, one could buy both, and only use the trunk lights from the R/C/R kit and the EE's from the EE kit and call it a day. Then you'd have a set of bulb trunk lights and a set of R/C/R LED's :-D

I don't have a problem with R/C/R LED's, I just think that they look better on facelift cars (which they aren't available for as far as I know). If money were no issue, I'd get a 99-01 prefacelift, get the R/C/R LED tails, then buy the facelifted fenders/lights/hood/bumper. That's even more $$$ though. I know of one member who did it.

umnitza 02-11-2008 10:31 PM

money no issue of course it's possible.
However, the two manufacturer shades of plastics are slightly different. So they will not match.

Nismode 02-12-2008 08:50 PM

Oh thanks. Will it look sort of like 4ngie's car (can't tell if the trunk lights are LED)?

And also, you're saying that it isn't possible to buy only trunk lights or only EE lights from you or other sponsors, correct?

jtblkice 02-13-2008 05:39 AM

well umnitza! You need to be working on getting us some inner led lights for the them!!!.. :pimpin:

jose325i 03-02-2008 11:13 AM

actually, i think the r/c/r led tails are available for facelifted sedans.

http://www.umnitza.com/product_info....oducts_id=1106

Under car model select 02-05 sedans. Unfortunately, they will cost 100 bucks more. Or am I confused??:confused:

delmarco 12-27-2008 01:50 PM

interesting questions.

I didn't realize some of the inner trunk lid light were NON Leds.

sillieidiot 12-27-2008 06:24 PM

it's because the c/r LEDs are modeled after the coupe's OEM. those don't have the LED trunk lights.

You can buy the inner sections....they are around $78.

TomTomTuning 12-28-2008 11:22 AM

Ahhh, i didnt know the Trunk lights werent LED thats a bummer!!!!

Edison@JleviSW 12-28-2008 12:12 PM

Oy, I am not a fan of that look at all. The R/C/R inner tails just do not match the Eagle Eyes look.

We have coupe and sedan trunk pieces in stock for only $60 shipped.
They are the same style as the factory 04 LED tails of the coupe.

Pictures compared above already.
