Technostalgia Rapid Fire

I love these tail lights but have held back because of the problems of the past. Can anyone tell me if they have purchased a set recently?
Have they made any changes to improve these tail lights?
Have you had any warranty problems or does the manufacturer stand behind the product when there are problems?

Thanks,

cady

Bought mine last October, had to send in both of the inner lights for warranty due to the several LEDs in the after burner strip being out.

I was a little "concerned" about how it was handled in that basically they make you send in the lights for repair, they won't advance ship you a replacement set for a core fee.

as such I only had 2 lights on the car for the time they were being repaired as the OEM and Techno lights won't work together, so I had to disconnect the harness for the techno lights.

I will say though it did take about 10 days with shipping, they did repair them in 1 business day and ship them back out the next morning.

installed mine in October 2012...Love them! Having to send in my outter left tail light but the company was easy to talk to and explained what to do. Like mentione above in another post. I have to send it to them for repair and they will turn it around within 24 hours. Light still works. just minor issue that needs to be corrected. Other then that they work great and are one of my favorite MODs. Wife loves them as well!

Well I sent an email to technostalgia 3 days ago asking some questions about the lights, no response yet. I guess they are busy but I expected an answer by now.

What about all the problems that people here were having with these lights draining the battery when the car wasn't started for a while? Has that been corrected? I really liked these, but I had an 04 GTO that in stock form constantly drained the battery when not started for a while. Really annoying- and I sure don't want that problem again.

Yes it will drain the battery if it sits for awhile but all you need is a Ctek charger (50-60 bucks) and that will not be an issue. Or place a switch on the hot wire to turn them off when car is stored. Two easy solutions there as I dont think any fix is planned. If it is a daily driver then it is not an issue.

I had mine installed since Jul 2012. No problem with the lights. It did drain my battery after 2 weeks. I put a switch in so I can toggle between battery (always on) and switched ignition power. I did this so I can use the hazzard lights without the key but under normal driving I leave it in the ignition switch location.

dmiotti I sent you a pm

Yes these lights do put a constant draw on the battery so if you only drive occasionally you need to do something, (switch or trickle charge) to address this. I have been told all lights are now pressure tested for seal.
