Everyone knows Mikey loves his LEDs. Put new bulbs, from DDM, in the tail lights. Tails themselves are nice and bright but my buddy followed me home and said that at night, it's hard to differentiate between tails and brakes. Not sure how they look during the day. Good thing I still have my spoiler-mounted 3rd...
I'll keep working on that. I forked out $10 a piece for these. Next step is probably VLED. Not sure Im ready, or can afford, to fork out $100 for bulbs.
Also picked up a pretty big LED board for the dome and 2 smaller boards for the map lights. Dome is even brighter than the pop-in board I had previously and domes are super bright, too. Pics to come. Should have a couple more smaller ones coming for the the doors. I think I have LEDs in the reverse and theyre not as bright as I'd like. Im either gonna look into VLED or might possibly just put incandescents back in. :\
On a worse note, lol, things aren't going so well for us, financially, and we have 2 cars; one has a payment, one does not. One is older with more miles, the other newer with fewer miles. We keep going back and forth about selling one and we cant decide on which. Hers is worth more but she owes less than it's worth so we'd come out ahead slightly. Mine is worth about half of what she owes so selling it would only delay things slightly. It's only been a consideration and hasn't made it to the table yet as an option but it has been talked about. Id be sad to do it but sometimes certain things are more important than others. I think I'd be more sad that we're having to sell a cars than actually selling the car itself, lol. Like I said, its only just been a thought.
Otherwise, nothing new. I feel as though my MR page has been more of a blog than a page about my car, lol.
Me too. My last car was a sedan and I rarely had people in it. That's why I got a coupe, lol. I'm still usually the only person in my car but I want a sedan. My GF's car is a sedan but it's a Corolla so it's smaller. I want something bigger. G8, Speed6, Camry, TL, etc. I have a list...lol. We're getting by but if worse comes to worse, we're not sure which car we'd sell. It'd make sense to sell hers since its worth more and will alleviate the extra cost but mines older and worth less, so...I tried different LED's in my tail lights and i had the same issue where it is difficult to determine when you are braking vs parking lights.
Sucks about having to sell a car, but sometimes responsibilities take over and we gotta sacrifice some things. I too am planning on selling my car soon as well, not for a shortage on cash or anything more to just upgrade as the accord isnt really practical and is kind of immature (need 4 doors)
Hopefully you make it through and selling is just a thought!
I figured DDM would be of some quality, lol. They're not bad bulbs. I keep checking them in glass reflections, at night, and day, and I think they're fine. I need to actually have someone drive it and see for myself.I bought my led bulbs off eBay. Never had a problem and I'm pretty sure it's noticeable when I brake. I always buy led bulbs that have a chip number listed in the title
