LED's arent brighter than normal lights, they just look better!

I was behind someone in a Vauxhall Corsa the other day who had sprayed all his rear lights black (the car was also black) and it was awful..... couldnt see when he was braking (thank god he had a third brake light!)

In the end I overtook him on the dual carriageway because I felt so uncomfortable behind him.....

I'm not sure if you could use fog lights instead of brake lights as brake lights, but they would be brighter....

As ive sprayed my rear lights body colour, my brake lights are a tad hard to see.

My boyfriend reckons LED brake lights, do you think they will be a bit better?

Oh dear...................I think you may have a hard time when it comes to the MOT,......................................thats if the feds don't get you first :(

Brake light and rear fog light bulbs are the same brightness so you wouldn't notice any difference :thumbsup:

When I first started seeing individual brake lights that should have been in with the side lights, the people I knew just swopped the wires for the brake lights and fog lights over..... most cars had two rear fog lights then so it wasn't a problem.....

gotta agree about the mot mine are clear lenses with clear led stop and tail which glow red

the high level brake light is still red so i am complying (ish) with the law.

had plenty of coppers admiring it but never been stopped and according to a copper i asked as long as they operate red i am ok :D

Cheers me dears :D

Won't have a prob with MOT have got a spare set of unsprayed tail lights, just to use for MOT time :P

MY tail lights are OK, but its my brake lights that my boyfriend reckons could be a bit brighter.

Think i might invest in some of them Prisim bulbs, they seem ok.
