Anyone considering Neon?

I have often wondered how underglow would look on the new camaro. Personally, I like the idea but I dont want to go so far as to be ricy. sp?

Here are my ideas:
Silver w/ Blue or purple (Primary Idea)
Black w/ Blue

Different States have different laws regarding neon. Here in CA there are two rules:

1. The light must be diffused, meaning the bulbs cannot be directly seen.
2. You cannot show red to the front.

It is even legal to have them on while driving.

Neons.... really?

That's just a universal thing you don't do to a Camaro...

could I sound like a d*ck anymore? j/k

Personally I think Neon underglows = Ricer. I'd advise against it... But you never know...

As long as you don't halfa$$ it or claim that those lights gave you an extra 20 horsepower, i wont consider it a ricer. Don't go too crazy with it or i will definitly consider it ricey, keep it clean and simple!

I want to see photoshops of this before I make any judgments. If you decide to do this, make sure no bulbs are visible.

LMAO!

Any way I think for people to just go right off and say its ricey for the camaro to have underglow is a little dumb. I mean come on it comes stock with ambient lights that will resemble neon lights on the interior with the RS package. I think neon lights can look good on all newer high end performance cars. Especially one that has this unique look. I mean picture the inferno orange with the orange interior lighting and some orange underglow. You know thats gonna look sexy as hell at night time.

i wouldn't do it on the outside but if done tastefully maybe under the hood the glow onto the engine or in the trunk to show maybe a sub enclosure. Or maybe on the interior but not on the exterior unless you build it into a show car

I'm thinking about it as well. Depends on the color scheme. They don't offer my convertible scheme so I'm up in the air about colors.

eh i think id put them only in the interior (under the seats to add to the ambient effect but most likely not on the exterior though it may look good.

i didn't see it written like set in stone in a law book but like on law forums there was a general concensus that you could have them as long as you didn't have them on while driving.

I'm not ashamed to admit, as I've done before, that I LOVE undercar neons.

Seeing a car drive down the road on a cushion of color looks nice imo.

I've had a set of purple undercar neons for 7 years but never had them put on my car due to lack of money. I'm pretty sure I'm going to have them installed on my White or Silver SS... Lots more money now.
