    Tail lights

    Has anyone tried these? CG® - Smoke LED Tail Lights - 2013 Chevy Cruze CG LED Tail Lights - CG 03-CZ11TLEDSM

    I have been contemplating either tinting my tail lights or just buying new ones like these. Tinting them is "illegal" in Alabama. These say dot approved. I just got my windows tinted and they said they would tint tail lights, so if anyone has any info it would be awesome!

    I'm thinking of going with tint. I just had my windows done to 20 percent so I'm a little paranoid right now. Haha.

    I definitely want some new headlights. I just gave to find some that a for sure PLUG & PLAY. Not wanting to rewire anything.

    Do not comprehend wanting to tint backup light lenses. My choice would be to install a couple of extra head lamps back there.

    Really don't comprehend the difference between driving at night especially on a foggy night that justifies using about 140 watts of head lamps when creeping forward and only using a couple of watts when driving in reverse. Vehicle is still moving in either direction and you still have to see where you are going.

    Can get some extra light by tapping on the brake pedal just enough to switch on the brake lights. Brake lights are actually brighter than the backup lights on this thing.

    Then making the reverse ratio the same as taking off in second gear, have to rev the engine and slip the clutch so I don't kill the engine. Really makes me think about driving into a spot where I would have to back out of. Really don't want to drive into a spot where the front end of this car is on a decline, its an incline in reverse.

    Just a word of warning to anyone who tints their tail lights. There are people out there who are following you who can't distinguish shades and intensities of red. I know, I'm one of them. We learn to adapt, but if you get rear ended by one of these people and your tail lights are past the legal tint limit I can guarantee their lawyer will be all over the DA to charge you with driving an unsafe vehicle. You'll also face a civil suit to for repayment of any insurance moneys, damages, etc. for the same reason.

    Matt - your lights aren't tinted so darkly they will cause problems. I've seen tail lights that are basically so dark they're useless.

    Those tail lights look awesome! I'd like to see them on a cruze first. And, I can't see myself paying that much for tail lights.
