People dont be skeptical about this product..
Im sure this product is top notch coming from Apexcone.
Dont be fooled by pre-production units that are being sold by vendors not related to Apexcone.

Spoke with Josh @ Autowerks on the phone today and he is a great Guy to deal with...

I would recommend going thru Autowerks.

I haven't received mine yet...but I have to agree that Josh does seem like a very nice guy. I have spoken to him on several occasions, and he was more than willing to answer all my questions. IMO, I think autowerks have tried their best to produce a quality product. Sure, these were promised months ago, BUT I am definitely glad they waited until a quality product was generated before selling to the public.

That's how it should be. I wouldn't want my LED's to flicker like pre-production Tails.

I rather get it from the source, that way I know I'm getting the fully tested and completed Tails.

I want to clear a few things up about this product that we are getting a lot of questions on.

If anyone doubts the facts as stated, please feel free to verify any and all details with the manufacturer: Eagle Eyes at 886-2-2763-5900-1 and ask for Kevin Lin.

Specifically, there is another thread claiming to have Eagle Eye E46 LEDs for sale and as the exclusive US distributor of this product, we need to make a few things absolutely clear:

1. There are no production versions of this light available anywhere right now. How do I know this? Because AutoWerks has already purchased the first entire production run, which has not even shipped yet.

2. All lights you have seen in pictures and videos in this thread and any other thread are development PROTOTYPE units. They are not approved for retail sale and there has been a manufacturer recall for these units (see attachment). It would be highly irresponsible for any retailer to sell these units. There are significant safety issues associated with their use which includes potential damage to your vehicle.

3. If you buy a prototype unit, it will not be under manufacturer warranty.

4. The product in the other thread does not work properly. Did anyone see a clear image of the dash light failure indicator? Neither did I.

5. Our testing took much longer than anticipated, but our units work.

AutoWerks has been in business since 2000 and has developed a strong reputation of customer service and quality products. This situation is a first for us in dealing with a new product where another retailer is basically trying to get around legal contracts, sell recalled merchandise and place his customers at risk.

However, I encourage each of you to be your own consumer advocates. Call us if you have any questions, call Eagle Eye if you don't believe us.

The last thing the manufacturer or AutoWerks wants is for faulty units to reach the market. Please understand that this post is us trying to protect our investment and our customers.

The good news: we will have more pictures in the next couple of days! Stay tuned!!

Thanks for the heads up. Matt still continues to tell me how Jim made this whole "recall" up and to damage his business and sales even yesterday. Finally some hard questions have been sincerely addressed. Good job AutoWerks!


I've lost all credibility in Matt and his shady practices and will no longer look twice at them, period.

Any Taiwanese readers want to call and check the facts directly? Genuinely, I encourage you to do so. Kevin will stop answering the phone if he gets too many calls.

Please be courteous of Kevin's time if you call. He is the #3 person in management at Eagle Eyes and is pretty busy. But I know he would also like to have this put to rest. Kevin speaks moderate English so I encourage only native Taiwanese to call. He speaks Mandarin as well as the local dialect.

Jim

Man,
There is so much talk and speculation flying around about these new LED taillights! I hope that when we finally receive these taillights from Autowerks sometime next week (finger crossed) that this topic can come to rest. Lets just wait until these taillights are actually installed on our cars before we past anymore judgement about these taillights (whether positive or negative).

At AA online....

When ordering these LEDs for the '05 Sedan....

1) These are plug and play?
2) Which "type" (i.e. "type 4" or "type ?") of Trunk light do I need? Are these LED as well?
3) These are Red/White with no alignment issues to the trunk lights?

1) These are plug & play.
2) We will have pictures of all the inner trunk lenses shortly on our website.
3) The LED Tail Lights are an OEM fit and finish. So yes, there wont be any alignment issues.

PS. Whats AA online?

Are the trunk lights OEM coupe trunk lights or OEM sedan trunk lights (the ones that come with the set of OEM clears)?

Thanks
