Default The 08+ STI - Forza 3 Brake Light Mod -

So there I am playing Forza on yay ol XBOX driving a 2008 STI.

I decided to play with the "outside the car view" and noticed that whenever you hit the brakes the lower reflectors lit up, and I said to my self, that **** looks pretty cool.

so i bust out the laptop and start looking for some JDM LED brake light for those, and no such thing exsists.

naturally this makes me not happy, and I PM Apkarian100 (on newenglandsubarus) and tell him this needs to happen. He says "Why not, that sounds like it could work"

I bought some reflectors from subaru ($12 for the pair) and ship them up to him, a couple weeks later, I have this!!!





So far... I love it!!!!!


They can be made a little brighter but we are trying this out.

Your thoughts?

In CT i think you can do it because they are red. I am sure each state has their own laws

Very nice. I like it. And as far as it being legal our cars are so scarce that i doubt you'd find a po po that would notice it. And if they did they are probably a subiehead and would want to know how you did it...Its basically the same as the tinted tails no ones going to know they are tinted unless they have or want one.
