Must be, each time the same two for me have broken clips and leaked. Maybe the people in Oshawa put my rear bumper on wrong so it creates pressure on them, but I know the clips are definitely weaker than OEM. It's a shame because its the first thing people notice...

Hey ninja...don't sweat some of these AAC fanboys, or lower yourself to their level. I had problems too with their product (none of which were my fault or doing) which required multiple returns on my dime. Good luck to you in getting resolution.

Thanks man, my resolution might be to simply rip open the OEM side markers and put the LEDS in. Seeing as the AAC Housings have developed cracks in the lens. I've already thrown them out, minus the LEDs.

Someone already made a DIY for led side markers. I'm thinking about going this route.

I must be old school, but I wouldn't spend $5 on lighting mods, I don't get the appeal at all.

Yes, and Oracle is AAC. Do a search for Oracle lights and compare their corporate address to AAC's.

Personally the only item I would buy from this company is footwell LEDs ( and thats only because there aqua matches). Other then that you can find the same, if not better quality stuff from other vendors at a fraction of the cost and 100% better service.

If you want the look but would rather have your OEM lights for whatever reason, there is another option. Big Worm which is the name of the company sells a stick on cover thats very inexspensive that gives the illusion of the LED strip style sidemarkers. Hope that helps!

I shouldn't have spoke about these sidemarkers. I just noticed my passenger rear light had a broken tab.

my question is how did you come up with 700 dollars, the acc side markers are no where near that price, they are 200.00 mine work well, if you are not careful installing them you will bend that tab more so in the rear than the front. i would buy agian because when it comes to these parts most of the housing are all the same unless you try to rig up your oem ones. seems to be more to the story then them just breaking, if i was to spend however much you spent i would for sure call them and get them replaced no matter how you feel about them.

i like mine, and will buy from them agian

Did you only read that one post or did you read the rest where I had said I've bought more that just the Sidemarkers…

This is a total of what I have bought with AAC:

First Order: March, 2011

Sidemarkers (Painted IOM with Kandy Option [Which It Didn't Come With])
$297.10

P13W Plasma LED's
$89.99

Shipping for that Order
$110.84

Second Order: May, 2011

LED Conversion Kit X2
$24.20 X 2 = $48.40

Shipping for that Order
$24.25

Third Order: January, 2012

LED High Power Reverse Lights (Tinted)
$201.60

Shipping on that order
$110.68

Total Spent Without Paying Shipping for Warranty Work

497.93 + 48.40 + 312.28 = 858.61

The price has gone up since actually because when I bought the Sidemarkers were at 50% off for the Painted Option ($140.00 for IOM as of today). So I've in fact spent more that with AAC.

Also everything that has broken from AAC for me has broken when the car has been sitting for extended periods of time. My car was parked December 2011 and not driven until May 2012 (they broke over the winter) and I glued them to my bumper.

I decided to try and rig them to my OEM (about a month or so ago) ones after the second time they broke but I said screw it. There really isn't more to the story than anything that I have provided.

I did the same. On my 3 pair, but will give it to AAC that they always stood behind their product. I've been left in the cold before with some products.
