Smoked Rear Tail Lights/3rd Brake light and Marker light help.

Hi all, I have researched and researched and I am having a hard time figuring out which Smoked lights to get, I was thinking of the Hero Tail lights and 3rd brake lights what do you guys think of these? I don't like the idea of removing the bump as the car even though it is a 14 has no miles on it.


The marker lights I am not really hearing good things about any of them. any help would be great, I have researched a lot. Thanks

I've never been a fan. Looks great, not so great in practice as it reduces brightness.

In any case, aside from replacing the entire light, they make "tint kits" for most models. It's basically a tinted film that you apply.

Best looking mod for the rearend I think, hero tail lights and matching 3rd, and there is NO loss in brightness as they are LED and made to shine through, bright as can be, but you do have to remove the rear bumper, not as bad as I thought though

If I got a Pair of sequential ones can I disable that feature and make them work just like the Non sequential? I hear there is a Blue wire you connect together. They are hard to find at the moment.

Ordered the Hero Third Brake light, waiting for tails to get back in stock, Hopefully they work with the LED marker lights.

Ordered these, Hopefully they work with Hero tails and third brake lights.


Anyone know how to disable the sequential feature of the Hero lights?

No Issues with LED sides and Hero Tails, Only thing I don't like is the Delay between the Third brake light and the Heros, It's at least a second, I did put the Hero third on the flash pattern when it first turns on to try and take away from the delay.


Overall fit is nice, It curves in a bit more then stock where it meets the corner.
