    Looks like they would work well, I just wonder if they would stand up to the abuse?

    I have some purple ones I got for free, they dance to music, pulse, and all that jazz, I cant ait to put them on and drive up next to a honda :D

    in az, you can have underglow lighting and long as the bulbs are not visable or directed at on comming traffic, I dont know how the officer worded it, but something like that.

    im putting mine on the inside of my frame rails :pimp:

    The tubes are lexan so they should be pretty tough, and personally I'd recommend mounting them pretty high so they generally stay out of harm's way.:D

    I have a set of the 7 color ones. They are not very bright and I have already cracked one from a rock coming off my tire on the highway but it is fun to pull up next to a ricer with them and turn em on :D but for $27 I would do it cause it does put off light all the way around though.

    Seems like it would work, and lexan is pretty tough. My only question would be 'what good are they after I drive through 1 mud puddle?'. I know when I go to TSF I usually plow through a couple of them... seems like a good coating of mud would render them useless.

    Stay away from those lights if you plan on taking it off road. My buddy went through 3 sets of lexan underglo lights on his 2002 RSX type S. That is just street driving. One good pothole and they are gone. Not to mention a Mustang burnt here a few weeks ago and that is what they are blaming it on. The transformer for those lights gets real hot. Just my 0.02 cents.
