    It appears that the smoke tail lights tend to appear pink during the day. The red tail lights don't have this "issue".....

    I have similar ones except no red tint and blackout housing vs chrome. No pink and they seem much brighter than stock.20200727_081735.jpg

    They’re ok but I’ve always looked for something better. These ones seem pretty good and for a decent price.
    Question- Does the C shaped light illuminate when you have the blinker on? Or does the cluster of lights in the middle blink? I think the C shape blinking would be cool but I’m curious before I pull the trigger. Thanks!

    I had these but in regular/non-smoked. The white part didnt look pink during the day, even with the lights on. I'd get these again if I get another 2nd gen.

    the c-shaped bit comes on when lights are on. The cluster acts as both brake and turn signal.
