OK I"m not really into body/external modifications.... minus wheels, suspension, tint... but everytime I see a brand new STS's rear taillights... I WANT!! I love that string of LED lights... does anyone know if there is a replacement or aftermarket set up to get the LED lights in the CTS?

I have yet to see any after marker LED tails for the CTS.. You may have to make your own.

This thread is so old it has a beard and needs a shave. LED replacement bulbs are available. A lot of us have them. Do a search....

I'll second that. A string of led's would rock. I looked for old threads and couldn't even find one pic of the bulbs actually in a V. I wouldn't think a bulb replacement would be nearly at cool, but I need pics to compare...

I think when I dumped all of my uploads for space it tossed the pics. I dont think that this forum holds all of that stuff??
Anyway, here is the story. Its really tough to photograph as you cant see the difference in the pics. All I can tell you is that for the 'look' you get a very fast brake light and the tailight is very 'red' as opposed to Orange in comparison.
A strip of LED's like the STS would look cool but our lamp would have to be disassembled.

You know what would be cool also? Having LED from bumper lights similar to this:
