Opinion: RS tail lights vs AAC afterburner lights

Hey. I'm getting an afterburner tail light kit for my camaro 2LT RS. I haven't actually seen my camaro yet, so I was wondering what you guys thought on that upgrade. I see that the RS tail lights are already tinted and look a little better than the non-RS models.

Would you say that the AAC Afterburner tail light kit is an 'upgrade'?

Thanks!! Can't wait to get everything in and installed same day!

Check out my album "kaylee's first photo shoot". I have quite a few shots of my afterburners. I have RS tail lights with the CCFL afterburners

Why not put afterburners in a set of RS taillights then you don't have to compromise

The RS taillights are not actually tinted, the DOT would not allow that. The way the darker look is achieved is by the black interior frame of the taillight, on the non-RS this frame is chrome and makes the lens look lighter.

If you wanted us to install Afterburners we could paint the frame at the same time which would mimic the look of the RS lights.

ah, I get it thanks! So the afterburner taillight is just an LED addon that goes on top of my already existing RS tail lights, correct?

So I'll still have the same look, just with the LED afterburner strip on the bottom of them?

Yes you've got it. Though it doesn't have to be LEDs, they also sell them as CCFL. Which is what I have. I personally like it better, more subtle. But its up to your opinion.
