Question LED or NEON Underbody Kit? Brand???

I did a search on this but only came up with a few threads that only helped me a little....

I'm looking to get an underbody kit for my ZX3. I want one color, Red. Out of the threads I read it looks like the consensus is LED because of it's functionality (patterns, mutlicolor, etc.). I'm really not loooking for all of that Just a single color RED underbody kit with a BRIGHT light throw.

Is it worth it to go LED if all I want is one color? And are the LED's brighter than the Neon? I read that if the LED's are not mounted properly that you can see each individual LED on the ground, unlike neon where all you see is a flush color. Where exactly do you guys mount your kit?

Where does everyone order their kits from? I know of Oznium.com cuz I have ordered from them before....cold cathodes for the interior FTW!

This is what I was thinking for LED: FlowLighting Single Color LED Underbody Kit
This is what I was thinking for NEON: StreetGlow Gold Series Neon Undercar Kit

The LED is actually cheaper and has a few functions in case I get bored with a solid glow......YOUR THOUGHTS PLEASE!

I'd go with the LED kit. I've had both neon and LED, and the LED lasted longer and was brighter than neon. I think you'll be happier with LEDs

StreetFX Kit, It may be expensive i think around 200 for 4 piece and 400 for 10 piece, but def worth it. I have it on my mustang and am very happy with it, controller, All different shades of every color, pulsing, match to the bass, it has everything

This is where I bought my red kit.
<----------------Look at my pic.

Excellent, couldn't be happier. Also had red LEDs on my late Mustang. It's a great kit for a great price.
