AAC's Afterburner Tail Lights

I've been getting parts from AAC for some time now and have always been amazed by the quality of their work and the great customer service. I recently purchased a set used, and remember that for later, of CCFL afterburners from member x7productions. Who by the way was great to work with, I bought my spoiler from too.

These are some un-photo-shopped iPhone pictures. I want to also mention that x7 got these tail lights through AACs new core swap program and they still look this good.

A j12 where in ny are you ? I'm ny's first aac lighting dealer and have alot of experience with it. Halos are great there is no cons to them you can get them to do alot of cool things. Hid's are great too in the right application. I personally don't like hiss in non rs headlights because there is no real control of the light due to the lack of the a cone in the headlight butternut I have installed them before. If you want a economical swap you can go with a eagle eyes upgrade add hids and your choice of halos from aac. This option is reversible just put your factory headlight back in and you are back to stock. Feel free to pm me with any questions you might have with products or pricing.

Bo3 they look great they are definitely a hot seller, I'm doing 3 installs over the next 2 weeks for rear halos. Definitely a hot upgrade!!

I wouldnt recomend HID in the stock housing. Eagle eyes are alright but cheaply made and many have problems with them. Do a retrofit and use OEM quality stuff. For the price of a AAC pnp kit you can do a retrofit.

Man way to bring a thread back. Yes I love these lights, and get compliments all the time. They look great with RS tail lights

I don't know what's up with the photos. I will take some more later tonight and repost them.

New pictures. I don't have my tint on now so they are a bit brighter than the first ones.

This is true, a couple of months ago we had supplier issues with the afterburner CCFL. Unfortunately the circumstances were out of our control, if we could have made the process go faster we would have.

They are the same level as the SMD ones I would guess. The SMD install might be easier because they have double sided tape on the back and the CCFL halos you have to silicon in place.

Well kind of. They are T-tap and play. You just have to tap into two wires (the ones for the running lights). It's a pretty easy and straightforward installation.
