sjm autoprod - Concept Afterburner Tail Lights

This is the official thread for our concept afterburners.

It's been a long journey, but, we seem to be well on track for hitting a price-point of $500 or less!

Update: $419 is the kit price for first run!

As some have suggested, DOT/NHTSA will be on the back burner for now. We have matched the brightness of the stock brake lights and will start with that.

Phase 1: DIY Kits
Tools Required:
  • Trim tool for removing tail-cover clips and bezels
  • Wrench for nuts that hold tails into bumper
  • Dremel or utility knife for separating lens from housing
Other Materials:
  • Silicone Sealant

That's it!

The basic kit consists of four light modules and four outer diffusers. After opening the housings and removing the inner lens, the modules mount inside and plug into the stock bulb connectors. If you have non-RS tails, you may want to black out the chrome lip inside. Lastly, you insert the outer diffusers and seal up the outer lens.

You can choose either the original, light outer-diffuser, or, the new, dark version (last two pics). A few other options will be detailed soon, such as flicker and sequential brake/turn.

See below for the group-buy list! When we hit 25 confirmed, the price will be $419 plus shipping! Deposits are being accepted ($127) and these should ship ~4 weeks after we get to 25 (or close).

Note that these are LED's, so, you will need load resistors (4x 6 ohm, at least 35W) to eliminate the Bulb Out errors on the DIC and hyperflashing. You can get them yourself, or, we can supply a set of four with t-taps for $28 (special price for those that have purchased the kit, normally $35).

We will update this thread with more info, and, the important bits will always be found in this first post.

Thanks to all of those that have purchased our other products which have allowed us to get to this point in under one year!

Light diffuser on left, dark on right.

Can't wait for updates. Have you tested these with led sidemarkers or the sequential tail light harness?

Wow. You are quick.

These tails and LED sidemarkers should not affect each other. We don't have those installed yet (cough:Showstopper:cough), but, they are due in soon.

I do know that these will not work with our current sequential-tail kits. It seems logical that other sequential kits should be fine.

I have Showstopper's sidemarkers and a sequential harness. I guess you can send me a set of tail lights and I'll test them for you.

As long as you can see them from 1000 feet, they should be legal. Really dig the rifling look to the housing.

OK, I've been waiting for these since you did your prototypes.

So, how much is it to order a set of these? Are these exchanges or outright prices?

Details, details! We need as much info as you can provide. (oh, and pics as well!)

Info will be posted as it develops.

Note that the price-point stated is for parts only. It does not include the tail lights themselves, or, installation.

It would be great if you could offer an option for an "assembled light package" with a refundable core charge. This way I could order the kit, remove my old taillights, pop in the new ones, and return my old set to you. You would refund me a core charge when you get my old ones.

Awesome! Once you get it settled, how much for a set shipped to 90250. My car is a daily driver so I can't send mine in and wait for them to be returned if that's how it's being done.

Go to the dealer and buy a set like I did. Then when you get everything all swapped in, you can sell the old set that was in your car. There's definately going to be people wanting them when this hits.

Core swaps are what we want to do for those that don't want to install themselves.

The install is actually not bad. Cut the outer lens off, remove the inner lens, install the light module and diffuser, then, silicone the outer lens back on.

Are you able to ship the parts and instructions yet or is it mandatory to send the taillights to you?
