I always wondered why they don't show real world pics of it in action on a car, in their ads? I think that would help ease peoples minds about how it would look. Like Alius said though, it does look kind of tacky. Looks like there would be too much going on in the back when they are on.

Too much going on with these and it will take away from the clean lines of the read end.

Leaning towards rice. The lit up "L's" are not aligned (mirror-image) with the rear brake light, and second they are Kia-style LED dots, not the smooth LED bars the rear brake lights make. On the positive, it is rather inexpensive so one might risk in trying it out and seeing how it looks like and post good real-world pics as some have mentioned above.

TACKY IMHO.

A.) Color Match your reflectors to your exterior paint color.
B.) Tint the reflectors black.
