Is there a significant difference in brightness between the parking lights and brake lights? I can't really tell from the pics, but one of my concerns is that I'd want Joe Schmo to be able to tell that I'm on my brakes at night (besides the third light, of course.)

Is it possible to have all 5 brake lights come on like I do now with the brake light mod. I'm looking into these lights for safety.

Do you think it's possible that Car-led could produce light up reflectors that are at the bottom of the bumpers. Not something that works with the brakes just something that's on all the time while the key is in the ignition.

Almost no difference in brightness but LED gives a much better look.

And an important excellence of LED is that LED lights up about 0.3 second earlier than the stock bulb when you brake, it will do great good to your safety.

Yes, it needs 0.3 seconds to heat up the tungsten filament hot enough to light.

Yeah, it's only 0.3 seconds, but you can see the difference. Sedan owners with the LED spoiler light, compared to the filament brake lights, can attest to this.
