First of all, this is in relations to this thread here, so just check it out first if you have further question. : http://forum.mazda6club.com/index.php?showtopic=61755

Anyway, car-led.com sent me a set of LED lights so that I can try out to see how their product is like as I am somewhat skeptical at them too, but I would like to give it a go as a guina pig

I have put the two side tail lights on with some hacking into the housing to accommodate the mod, and so far I am very happy with the outcome. I am going to do the inner two tail-lights which they supply me with two additional LED circuit boards which were made for the two outside lights. From its appearance it does seem to fit, but until then I will find out, hopefully sometimes tomorrow. Also there are two for turn-signal ( blinkers for us Ozzie ) which I am to do them the last.

Anyway, these are the pics for the time being and I will get back with more infos or problem or whatever.

Lastly I have to thank car-led.com to let me try their products out first without paying and I am hoping this will turn out to be a good product for the 6 community. Ofcourse I will pay for the products once I am happy with it

Ivan, are they looking into doing these as a whole kit (boards and housings) and not just LED boards?

Hi Dave, from the conversation I had with car-led.com, they can supply either in the LED board alone or whole kit ready to fit on but with a stiffer cost. From the quote I got from them with the whole kit seems like a good deal better than the OEM products that are being quoted that I have seen on the net, but the exact cost have to be from car-led.com themseflt I guess.

The mod itself does seem a bit daunting, but I think for those who did the DDE mod, I would say this mod is easier in comparision. So yes the LED board is for those who are keen on DIY and whole kit are catered for ones who feels lazy to do the hardyard themself

One note I found with this mod is, if we can source some clear lense ( as stock is in red ) for the housing, then it will be perfect.

I really like the way they look. What kind of prices are we looking at for each type of offering. What kind of shipping costs as well?

6Venom, I hope car-led.com can get back to you with the exact figure. But the shipping cost shouldn't be too high due to its rather light weight for the kit to begin with. The complete kit may be a different matter though.

I am not trying to be difficult here, but why won't you give pricing? Numerous times on this post and the other post from above people ask you for the price, but you consistently ignore the question. What is up?

Well, for one thing, this company is not a vendor on this board yet. If they would start listing pricing and selling options, we would have to close and remove this thread as it would violate the forum rules.
