It's strange, I've always been interested in these lights, and it seems like a lot of other people are too. But then again, we never see any pics of anybody w/ them installed on their ride.

I got them on my 02 and they are nice. Will try to take some closer shots later

I hate them... I had a pair on my Escalade a while ago and decided to paint over them. They light up at night, but you can't see them during the daytime. In my opinion, they don't look classy and add a rice rocket look to your Escalade.

I agree with Synergetic. I been searching for some time and can't find any rear light assemblies that would be classy enough. I don't know why GM will not make them for the Escalades. :rant2:

Sometimes I think the LED tail lights give off a sort of cheap look. It depends because at some angles, the lights look good. I would rather keep my stock tail lights.

Thanks.

I think what he meant was that the ones for sale look cheap.

I just ain't feeling the clear housing on those lights. it would look a lot better if the glass was juss red. The clear looks straight up aftermarket, I was thinkin bout smoking a set so it wouldn't b as noticeable.

Agreed. I think the clear housing doesn't look nice either. Is it possible to get LED lights with the stock red housing around them? Red housing would appeal to me a lot more than the clear.

Thanks.

I purchased a set about 2 years ago, put them on and took them off, they just looked cheap, and they were anything but cheap.

What do you guys think about these LED's? I really don't like how the clear housing looks but I do like how the black one on the bottom left looks here. Tell me what you think.

Thanks.

I feel the same way. A customer of mine wants to switch out the stock tail lights for the all LED ones, but all of the one's I've seen so far have the clear plastic lens. Just looks cheap to me. All red lens with the red LEDs underneath would be clean looking. Eurostars look the best to me so far. Anything out there that looks better?
Thanks.

Steve K. I have been shopping around for some LED tail lights for quite some time now and I still haven't been able to locate any nice looking ones. If you do happen to find any good, clean looking LED tail lights, please let me know. I will keep looking for now.

Thanks.

Why not buy the LED's then swap your stock RED housing with the new clear housing you dislike.

It seems like too much work. I think that maybe we could spray the clear lenses with some clear and maybe some red pigment in there. Kinda the way that you would 'smoke' lenses, but using red instead of black. I need to expiriment with that idea.

they have transparent red paint for tali light housings already.
they also have transparent red vinyl sticker to put over the tails as well. it looks like stock tails lights from the ones ive seen on my friends rsx.

2007: I checked out the Eurostar led's both locally and on line.....they definitely DO NOT look like the lenses in the pic posted by jldz (earlier in this thread). The pic almost looks as if the lens is red (??).
I'll hold out for new product and keep the stock lenses for now.
Thanks.

Has anyone checked out cool lights.com They have both red lenses and clear, but the prices seem to be like tooooooo many other companies lately that are just price gouging people. I mean, $335 for a set of tail lights. I can easily afford an Escalade and that still doesnt seem fair.
