well personally I hate neon lights and think everyone that has them (especially inside the car) is a jackass.

even if it is a show car that you do not drive every day, I don't really see what the point of neons is (besides obviously color matching, e.g. blue car blue interior... blue neons) they are a distraction if you are driving with them on (especially the ones that blink with sound) and if they are blue and bright enough to be seen outside flashing you can be charged as if you were impersonation a police officer (a bogus charge but I have seen it happen to this stupid guy in my garage with a stock honda civic besides having racing seats and tints, and of course flashing blue interior neons)

That is just my personall opinion, im not really about the fancy stuff like neon lights and other asorted ..."bling" not that many would consider neon lights bling.

maybe im just bitter, don't take offence from my opinion...

But someone that has a Fast and the Furious Quote in their sig it doesn't supprise me you want neons.

I don't really care what you do to your car but since you asked what I thought... you got it, I tend to be brutally honest sometimes.

ya if it is done tastefull it can look ok I suppose but it would have to look pretty damn tastefull for my praise so if you end up doing it and get praise from me you should feel extra good about it, not that you should give a fuck what I think. :jester:

Geez somebody really hates lights in the car...Just to comment on whats the point? I mean I got my lights because I happen to like the blue color and it matches my radio, gauges (now lol), and map and dome lights...and its fucking cool. To each their own...

Do you have the lights on all the time? Seems it would make it harder to see out the windows at night. I always keep my dash lights as low as possible so they don't reduce my outside vision.
But, the indirect lighting would be realy cool if you use them to light the car when the door is open or you're parked. It makes for a sexy atmosphere. The standard white overhead lights are too glaring.

If it attracts chicks, it is a great mod.
Where do I get those lights? I need some.
The dim lighting would do good for my old bod, but I'd probably get arrested if I was cruising the colleges.

lmfao

I don't know why I do not like those interior lights, one of those things that you can't explain.

I agree it would be kind of cool if it matched everything with your car color wise, and maybe just went on with a switch (or when you know how all the dome lights go on when a door is open)

But I also dim my guages for night driving for better visibility.

And I just don't like that quote from TF&TF, wont get into it but that is something someone would say just to make themself feel better after almost losing.

The movie rates as "ok" in my books though.

Sometimes I rant just to read myself rant so don't let me get in the way of something you think is cool, as you said, to each their own...

Nice looking car btw, maybe i'm jealous cause mine has been damage raped one too many times...

Interesting how you assumed TF&TF was anything other than (The Fast & The Furious)
