Review from TJ91:

I have them and LOVE THEM!
Installed them myself. My DVD came with everything but the Burner install After alot of pms with Stieger and AAC, i got it done.

My thoughts about the Install. HONEST Review

Alright so my GF bought me tail light blackouts a few years ago, so doing the core exchange was not an option for me. Also, the install price was an extra $200 and as a student, I couldnt afford that.
So I decided to install them myself. How hard can they be right? LOL
Ok so first off, removing the nuts on the tail lights- The corner tail lights have a nut you have to remove in one of the most impossible places, seriously its ridiculous. Thank god mine were finger tight because I didnt have any tool which would fit in there.
Ok so you get all the bolts out, now you have to take the bezels out.
I watched a thousand videos on removing them, still didnt stop me from fudging up the first one lol I said no biggie, im going to paint them flat black anyways. Keep in mind, I take extra precautions to protect the tail lights and bezel but it still seemed to make blemishes on the bezel. Oh well- I suggest getting Nylon pry tools as other members suggested and swear by it. Some people also take em out with no problems.
I was doing this in an unheated garage when the temps outside were -15 degrees

Alright so at this point you have all four taillights out.
The cutting part is quite terrifying at first. Come on, how many owners do you see cutting their own tail lights?! Anyways, some how I grew the nads to continue cutting the lens off and got better with each tail light. I was going to sand down the rough edges but then realized that keeping them helped with alligning the lens and housing back into perfect position so I didnt sand it off (kinda like a puzzle).
Installing the rings is a breeze, Im a perfectionist by nature which is another reason I did these myself, Im EXTREMELY picky lol
After I got all four rings in, it was time to seal. Problem was I bought clear silicon that apparently came white and dried clear in 14 days!! Oops (Moral of the story, make sure you get the right silicon and a quality one at that)
SO after buying the right silicon, I sealed the lens. I first cleaned the lens and housing thoroughly and then sealed them up.
After I sealed all four lights. I came back and sealed them again. Then sealed them again, and one more time for added insurance. Overkill? Definitly- but it was peace of mind for me. Oh and I should add, my seal job looked brutal after all those layers but oh well, bezel covers it up anyways.
So after all that, came the wiring part. This part is a breeze -seriously - a breeze. I installed all four lights, wired them up and modified the tail light bulbs as well.
Car looked great. Then I went down and painted all my bezels flat black, boy did that make a difference.

So now my car sits in the garage, and everytime I take the winter car out, I open the garage, press unlock on my Camaro key fob (yes I carry it around with me lol) and watch those burners come on and just say "WOW"

Ill post a crappy pic for now but I just recently took some better pics which i still need to add to the PC.

So thats my honest review on the install, would I do it again? Definitly
Was it easy? Hell no but working on your own car is priceless.
Can I break something? The Lens if your not carefull but majority of the mistakes youll make, like me which was cutting the lens, is covered by the silicon seal anyways.
Do you like the AAC Burners? Is it worth it? NO.....I LOVE THEM and wish I had them sooner!



One more fun fact- GF bought me the burners for Christmas....shes a keeper

Basically, the CCFL is a glass tube with a softer ambient glow. The SMDs are brighter with many LEDs and would match your sidemarkers, which I know you have and love :-), because they are also SMDs.

You can see here that the SMD halos are brighter and more definitive than the CCFL halos. (The LED halos do not have a bar that goes across the top of them; this is just the way the picture was taken)
