I know some of you may not like this style and only like the OEM tails, but I've wanted LED tail lights since I got the car and these are the best ones I think.

Personally, I like them more than the OEM looking LED lights that are also for sale.

Here's my review.

Fitment - 6/10. The fitment is pretty good all around except it leaves a bit of a larger gap between the trunk lid and the light. Also, for some reason I didn't see a spot for the lower bracket on the lights that the OEM lights have. I regret not putting the bracket back onto the body though because now the bumper cover doesn't fit right. So now I have to remove the bumper again and put that bracket on. The sidemarker bulb is the same one used from the OEM lights but it won't fit in the lights correctly. Maybe it was just because my hands were freezing but I'm not sure, I'm gonna give it another shot a little later. Other than that, everything else fit perfectly.

Functionality - 9/10. I think the LED's for the brake lights could be a little brighter. The turn signals are very bright and the reverse lights are twice as bright as stock.

Look - 9/10. I really like these black lights, the chrome ones are ok, but a little too bling bling for my liking. :laughing: I think these lights flow very nicely with the car.

Anyways, here are the pictures, I'll try to get some videos and night shots by tomorrow.

not that bad, i just wouldnt trust aftermarket head/taillights only because of fitment. i would give them overall 7/10 b/c they match with GG pretty well.

Thanks for the compliments, I liked these LED lights the best because the turn signals are LED's as well.

And they are really bright at night, just not as bright as I wish they would be during the day. I should've clarified that a little better.

I got them off ebay, from the seller spyderbone.

The buy it now price was $160, I offered $130 and he took it. $25 for shipping, so a total of $155.

not bad really, that's average for tail lights, and a good deal for LED lights

Not bad! Not really my style but it doesn't look bad to me either. You'll definitely stand out from the thousands of other 06/07 Civics already out there.

I took a video of the brake lights and turn signals at night. Sorry for the quality, it was with my point and shoot digital camera.




I'll get a daytime video as well tomorrow
