    Just a word of caution. The quality of the LEDs and housing are of different quality, hence the price.

    Both sellers have the same images with the same "brand" watermarks on the images....have you purchased either of these products? I would love to know your experience if you have.....so many questions....

    Yes, matter of fact I did as if you check the earlier tread posted. I have seen them physically and the (L shape) LEDs are not in line. Also, the quote might be for single unit, so you need to double check on that again. Besides, the color of the LEDs also vary, when I purchase mine, I tested the lights and finally got it the second time around as the first unit color differs from each other (left was slightly yellow than the right which is white).

    Re: Modding the factory LED accent lights

    So you have a set on your SRX right now? Could you post some high res photos of yours installed? How has the chromed-plastic held up so far? Any chipping? How long have you had them installed?

    Thanks!

    Edit: I just found your post/pic.....you have the ones with the straight line of LEDs at the top that several here have installed, not the 'L' shaped ones....now I'm confused...

    Yes Dave. I have looked at the L shaped lights and the quality is poor hence I picked the straight bar lights. So far they are holding up well.

    Thanks for the clarification, and sharing your findings!

    Great to hear some longevity reports as well. Yours looks great! I guess I'll stick with the tried and true version.
