Does anyone know if the brake lights on the 2000 Deville can be upgraded to brighter LEDs if I was looking to do a tail light tint???
That way I can still meet the SAE 300ft visibility requirement.

Re: Tail lights
You need to study why LED's in filament bulb reflectors usually don't work........ and why the lighting circuits in your car depend on a certain bulb load/voltage drop which LED's do not provide.
Look up the filament brightness for the dual filament #3057, 3157, and 3457 bulb series. You CAN get a bit more brightness with a simple bulb change. The GE automotive lighting site.
