The only issue I have heard about LED kits is that the LED puts little dots on the ground is this true? If it is not you can bet I will buy a kit.
04-21-2005, 09:22 PM
Excellent point and yes the older kits did do that(3 years ago). But since then the manufactures changed the LEDs to wide angle LEDs to eliminate the "dots". They listened to the consumer for once. [:)]
PM me with your contact info if intrested or feel free to ask more questions. I would be glad to help.
04-21-2005, 09:45 PM
wow, thats a bargain! you sure sparked my interest, i'll run it by my gf, she may want a set too...how involved is the install?
04-21-2005, 09:56 PM
Also is this available in single colors or is the multi color kit, and like gatmog said how is the install?
04-22-2005, 02:22 AM
Installation is a DIY project. I would have to say on a 1-5 scale 5 being the hardest; a 3 would be pushing it. The hardest part of the whole process is just determining where you want to place the controller at which point you build or lay out everthing from there. It all depends upon how far you want to take the install.
This group buy is for single color only. I will see what I can work up with the 7 color kits so keep an eye out if that is what you want.

How is the wiring set up? I know with street glow there is a wire to tube set up that bridges all the tubes and runs two single wires to the transformer/capacitor (or what ever that is). With the Optix brand there is a wire that comes from EACH tube and goes to the box. The optix looks pretty messy compared to the street glow.
04-22-2005, 02:11 PM
Lite Glow uses the 4 plug into the controller.
The kit or piece that links all the tubes to one and then has one connector from that to the controller is called a "distribution block". While the distribution block may allow you to hide the wires better the wiring is still there and that would be unavoidable but with a little planning you end up hiding it pretty well that it wouldn't be noticable or messy.
Hope that helps!
04-22-2005, 02:35 PM
Helps out alot, now about the wires to the distribution box from the lights what guage are they? Once agian I will refer to optix, there wires are I think 18 guage, its REALY thin wire does this make a diffrence? Also you said there is little power drain, is this amount to much to hook up to my alarm system and let sit for 8hours? Its a brand new battery so weak charge is not an issue.
04-22-2005, 02:47 PM
Just to make sure we are on the same page, the Lite Glow kits do not use the distribution block. They hook directly into the controller. As for wire size, yes 18 guage but the wire is protected under a good rubber coating since most of the application is outside in the elements of the road.
Power draw is nothing compared to Neon which needs to jump up the voltage anyway. LED Under Car kits (12V system without heavy draw) I would say you could leave it on for a few hours and nothing to the battery is going to happen. I personally have never tried to see exactly how long I could run it without killing the battery. But at shows like Hot Import Nights, you will see everyone with under car kits on without any cars running for hours on end.
Not to pull away from this forum, but PM me a phone number to call. It might make it easier to explain you options or feel free to contact me at the phone number in my signature.

i have the Lite Glow L.E.D. kit right now and let me tell you it looks great!!!!!!!!! installation was a breeze!!! only problem is one of my 48" tubes started giving out on me after 6 months and now only about 6 L.E.D.'s are on [:(] so im thinking about buying a new set and using the left overs for something else......
04-22-2005, 04:44 PM
The tubes are under a life time warranty. Don't buy another set unless you really want to or have plans for the spare tubes. Contact Lite Glow www.Liteglow.com for warranty return. This is assuming your tube is not busted and just the LEDs are out.
If you need to purchase a replacement tube because it is busted let us know. We do have them in stock and I can keep the costs down since you are from a forum we support. [:D]
Hope this helps! If you had previously purchased from us I would be glad to replace it for you.
04-22-2005, 05:25 PM
its not busted, it looks like the LED's just went out. they started geting REALLY dim, and now most of them are out on just that one tube.
if you could let me know how much a replacment tube cost, i would really appreciate it!!!
04-22-2005, 05:58 PM
The replacement tubes is $40.00 shipped for the 4 foot. Send me a PM of what color and email address if you need it!
04-22-2005, 09:23 PM
Red LED neons ordered, as soon as I recieve you will get a buy, sell, trade rating from me.
Thanks again James!
04-22-2005, 10:16 PM
Sounds like a plan. Payment has been recieved, a tracking number has been sent to you via PM and thank you for the business!
04-27-2005, 08:24 PM
i wonder, can these withstand heat??? like mounting one in my engine bay???
04-27-2005, 08:40 PM
do these tubes break easily??? i travel on gravel roads alot because i live in the sticks of WV and was wondering how easily they break. would a little piece of gravel break them??
04-27-2005, 08:55 PM
I don't think it would be a problem considering it being solid state technology (handles better in extreme temps). But in all fairness, I have not attempted to have it installed in the engine compartment. If it could fit, sure why not.
04-27-2005, 08:59 PM
The lexar tubing is a high impact acriylic type material. It is strong enough to protect the neon or led tubes inside yet doesn't distort so you always get a clean light. Gravel rodes will not be any problem.
I personally have busted one tube and that was only because I bottomed out my car in a NYC pot hole. Those suckers got big! The LEDs still worked just the lexar tubing cracked.
04-27-2005, 09:00 PM
i will probably be buyin red ones, but need to know if they can break easily because of the roads i drive on
04-27-2005, 09:02 PM
sweetness......can you tell that there cracked only by lookin under the car or does it show with the lights on. you really have my attention now.....
just hope my parents follow through with a cool birthday present!!
04-27-2005, 09:05 PM
I only found out that the tube was cracked when I looked under to see if I busted anything. And sure enough, I did. But with the lights on, you would have never seen it.
04-27-2005, 09:11 PM
ALRIGHT.......i will get back at ya about the lights after this weekend!!!
04-28-2005, 05:27 PM
how come the site says $70? is that without shipping? o and by the way i am interested but i need to see if my friends want in too.
04-28-2005, 05:29 PM
nevermind i read wrong
04-28-2005, 06:03 PM
Its been a long 3 days for me but I finally got the lights. Sadly I am at work untill 10 and they will not be installed untill late tonight or tomorow. So I will give my review ASAP, also I have a friend who may want to buy a set of white.
04-28-2005, 10:27 PM
Let me know if you have any questions Jon.
04-29-2005, 03:39 PM
so how do i go about ordering a replacement tube??? also, can you give me more info on sending back the defective tube???
my e-mail is email@example.com
04-29-2005, 03:51 PM
are we getting the controller as well or are you responsible for buying that as well?
04-29-2005, 04:29 PM
Everything you will need to have the kit operational and completely installed will be in the kit. So, no you will not have to purchase a controller. [thumb]
Thanks for asking!
04-30-2005, 04:41 PM
That sums up the quality of the kit,
I will start with the install.
The hardest part of the entire install was deciding a place to run the wires to the inside. Since I have a auto I used the hole where the clutch should be, the wires were extremly long so I have alot left over. The clips that are given for mounting the lights are perfect for the focus the lights lay flush with the bottom of my car. The only issue was with the screws that were given they were not able to penatrate any part of the focus underbody even when I predrilled a pilot hole, it was not a big issue I just used others. The controll that is given is pretty bulky but will soon be hidden when I buy the wireless remote.
Over all performance of the lights.
I am VERY impressed with the light distribution, it is very bright and the light extends 2 1/2 feet outside of the car. The patterns run in time with the other lights the only thing I would change would be the speed, the lights are a little slow when making the patterns.
All together rating 1-10, 10 being the highest
I give the single color LED Light Glow kit
9 out of 10[thumb]
James you were VERY helpful durring the ordering process, I will be recomending you to my friends.
04-30-2005, 09:50 PM
Thanks for the feedback! I know what you mean about the screws. I too predrilled and they took fine after that but I didn't chage the hardware at all like yourself. I will provide the comments back to Lite Glow. Perhaps they could supply better screws with the kits. The fact is what ever material they use or spray on the under carrage is some tough stuff.
04-30-2005, 10:06 PM
The only reason I changed the screws was I did not feel like pre-drilling every screw.
How exactly does the wirelss remote hook up is it a whole new remote or is it a add on to the existing remote?
04-30-2005, 11:57 PM
The universal wireless remote? Basically, it is a switch. You put it in line with the power or ground wire. Click the remote and your system is active/on.
I personally used this in my set up. I have the Red Lite Glow LED Under Car Kit in and the Plasma Glow Red Wheel Well LED Kit all hooked through to the Universal wireless remote installed on my RSX. All my lights with just a click.
RSLED7 remote. I am not sure that will work with the single color. I will ask about that on Monday. I know the 7 color kit buyers love it. I really don't see why it wouldn't work out for the single color (you just won't have the options of changing colors) but they would know for sure. So I will have to get back to you on this one.
05-02-2005, 03:06 PM
Spoke with Lite Glow today just to confirm and the wireless remote for the 7 color is only for the 7 color kit like I suspected.
If you are using a single color kit, the universal wireless remote we sell will work fine for the application. Unfortunatly, you will not be able to select the patterns. It is simply an on/off switch put in line with your power.
Hope this helps and if you have any other questions please ask. The sale ends in a short 5 days so get them soon.
05-02-2005, 07:53 PM
Well I guess I will just have to find a way to hide that beast, I already have a plan.
hey James I gave you a buy/sell rating point, if you could do the same for me. Click on my profile and do it there.

05-24-2005, 09:50 PM
will this fit other cars as well? i have a friend who is looking for a red kit, im trying to decide between blue and yellow..... i have blue lights inside, but i want to stay legal on the outside, not sure if yellow would look right however.
can you hide the tubes if you don't have a body kit or will they show?
05-24-2005, 10:03 PM
I am interested in the orange kit, could you PM me details?
05-24-2005, 10:07 PM
The kits are universal fit. As for the tubes being seen without body kits. Not really sure, I know the profile is very tight to the under carrage. Most people have some sort of recess between their under carrage and outer trim.
As for the colors, under car kits normally get matched up with your interior light mods or if none go with your car color. It really comes down to choice and planning.
Hope it helps.
Thank you to all the staff at Extreme lights that helped me out, I love my kit, please give me a buy sell rating. good transaction.
05-26-2005, 05:45 PM
Not a problem Trey! Glad you like them. Your buy/sell rating has been updated.
05-27-2005, 04:32 PM
Hey James I have been considering getting a LED under car kit and some interior accent light also most likely in blue or green and I was just wondering what brand you would recommend and also is the wireless remote only for the Best Electronic LED system? If you could give me an idea of the price range it would be appreciated. Thanks a lot - Billy
05-27-2005, 05:58 PM
Rule 1 when planing any lighting; make sure whom every you buy a product from and the product itself comes with a "Life Time Warranty" Simple as that. My view is if the manufacture is not willing to back up their product then why buy it.
Rule 2: When looking for under car kits, consider what you want to do with it. If simple on/off is good and budget is a little tight go with a neon kit. If you have some extra $$ then I suggest LED. LED can do alot more and is less prone to breakage since it is solid state this as compared to glass (Neon)
Rule 3: Determine what type of budget you set. Price is very relative to quality in under car kits. Sometimes sellers like ourself gets an opportunity to support venues such as the focus community which we try our best to add some savings. An example for this would be Plasma Glow kits are top line what we sell. Best Electronics brand is a new entry but many customers like the price and I have never heard of a problem with any kits for not doing what they are intended to do.
Rule 4: Make sure the kit you buy is "wide angle" LEDs. This was a lesson learned from the consumer when it came to product feedback. People didn't want to see dots. They wanted glow and "wide angle led" does that.
The best electronics remote is just for that brand. We sell a universal remote which just does on/off. The remote with say the 7 color kit does all the functions the controller would do without touching the controller. All in the palm of you hand.
So, my recommendation; Lite Glow produces a fine product, middle of the road value and comes with all the listed above. Really it comes down to budget. Hope this helps out. If not please PM me.
Take care and have a great weekend if I don't hear from you.
05-28-2005, 02:32 AM
can't wait to get my kit next week!
question: if i get a remote, is it just off/on? does it have a timer for say 30 minutes?
05-28-2005, 11:44 AM
The universal wireless remote is on/off. no timer on it. The universal remote simply goes in line of the power wire.
just a question I didn't ask, what all is covered by warranty??
05-30-2005, 04:37 PM
Simply, just don't smash a tube and all will be good. But to be more specific, burnt out tubes or any other manufacture defects that might occur throughout the time you own the under car kit.
06-01-2005, 09:34 PM
Thanks for all the questions and interest in this thread. I started a new thread titled "Lite Glow Under Car Kit $100 Shipped Extended", please use the new thread since this one is getting too long. Thanks!
