:eek: Yup...Free...to me, that is.

One of our customers, who has blacked out tail lights and brake lights on their STS got a ticket for them and wants to return to stock. Well, that would cost over $1,000 parts and labor. So, they were looking for an alternative. The manager of the accesories dept. came to me and asked if I wouldn't mind switching my tails for some tinted ones, and I said..."as long as it doesn't cost me"..."besides, it matches my deep tinted glass".

So, I brought my car into work today and they are doing the exchange as I type.:thumbsup:

I'll just throw it in the bag with the ones for the windows, my windows are VERY dark, which is illegal in Kali.

The lights are coming off a white car with no other mods, no window tint,no wheels,no exhaust tips(that stand out),no mesh kit...nothin'...:thepan:no wonder he got a ticket.

As soon as I figure out how to get past that 600x600 resolution retriction again. I'll try it with my wifes cell phone this time.

I checked them last night, practicaly no difference. You would have to have one side by side to tell the difference.

It's probably worth a search... there are some manufacturers that make a more powerful/higher emitting brake light bulb largely for blacked out applications. I'm sure no one offers it specifically for Caddy but I bet some of them are compatible.
