those who u with aftermarket tails.

recently, i posted few pictures of my car after wash..
I came to ackowledge that I need clear tail lights..
I have already set up my mind to get smoked front corners, side markers, painted front bumper reflectors.. and now for the last part..
Im debating whether to get regular clear talilights, or LED.

So, I'm here to ask those of you guys with LED taillights(Aftermarket) , how are they holding up? any reflashes required from dealership after installation?, any condensation taht causes water inside of taillights? if no problems occur and ur good w/ them, will you please tell me which vendor u guys bought it from and what not. I've seeen all vendors selling them with Eagle EYE DOT approved status and etc, but I just want to know if they're holding well. Local guy is selling clear tails that are not LED @ reasonable price, but I just wanted to make sure if LED are good and gives u no problem, im choosing to go w/ LED ones than regular ones.

Got a set of Eagle Eyes LED tails on my car with the DOT approval, built in resistors and plug and play installs with no problems. They don't require a reflash and are guaranteed to work right out of the box without any special wiring or reflashes. You can check out my review here:

It's on a sedan but the product install is virtually identical on a coupe.

I purchased the LED's from Umnitza and I couldn't be happier. I've had them for about 8 months now. Plug and play design and they look great. See my garage for pics...

I have the Eagle Eyes ones on my sedan and I love them. Since you have a coupe could you buy the stock LEDs and have the LCM reflashed for the adaptive function? (I was behind an 05 coupe yesterday and the adaptive lights blew my mind). I know that option would be much more expensive...but man is it cool.
