I was browsing the internet for some underglow kits and I stumbled across one that kind of caught my attention. Its cheaper than the other ones and its not LED. I'm under the impression that you get what you pay for so if this 50% cheaper than most kits out there I'm kind of skeptical.

I know underglow seems kind of ricey, but I like the looks of it.

Opinions would be greatly appreciated!

Wouldn't trust it. Anything with actual bulbs would be a bad thing to put under the car, because chances are real high they're going to break. One rock kicked up by your tires, or one speed bump taken too fast, and its trash. That's why LEDs are so popular.


You're probably not going to find a lot of positive input from people on this board though, they don't like the underlight kits.

I will do my best to force my criticism to be constructive without name calling and yelling.

Many people (myself included) would consider any kind of undercar lighting tacky and along the way of "rice"

That being said in pure lighting terms I prefer LED over traditional incandescent and neon lighting. The LED's use less juice and can still be hidden more discretly than the other options.

What brand, and where did you get your LED kit from? I've seen and LED underbody kit on another car (TSX), and it was frickin' bright!
Post up some pics here on the forum board. I'm sure others, who aren't on myspace would like to see.......

leds are normally brighter and require less power.
