Has anybody out there installed led tail lights on their zx3? If so, any problems? Do you like the look and function (are they bright enough) of the light? Would you list the pros and cons.

Hey All. Just ran across this notification at http://www.lightlens.com/coloredbulbs.htm
Just FYI: Might want to be careful where your buying them at.

Automotive News - AFTERMARKET L.E.D. TAILLIGHTS 40% DEFECTIVE IN 3 MONTHS... Aftermarket L.E.D. taillights manufacturer sued for defective L.E.D. taillights and illegal conduct. A lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Sept. 4, 2008 (case no. BC394618). The lawsuit alleges over 40% of the aftermarket L.E.D. taillights shipped to online retail customers were defective in the box or within 3 months of installation. The allegations of defective L.E.D. taillights are based on a conclusive customer satisfaction survey in which online retail customers reported more than 40% of the L.E.D. taillights they received were defective in the box or within 3 months of installation.

LED's are coming on for sure. But most of them are going to be junk imo. They use cheap off-the-shelf LED's and drive the crap out them to get the brightness, which of course means there going to burn out fast. I saw the backside of one set and there was not a hint of current limiting or voltage control. Just waiting for the complaints to start rolling.

thats why when i get LED tail lamps im goin to spend the extra money for euro stars
Is "euro stars" a brand name? Or is it a trade name? Searching for the manufacturers web site...

Huh! I find references to tailights made by EUROSTAR®, but they don't appear to have a website(?) Also, It may refer to a European manufacturing zone. Hence, they can trademark EUROSTAR®. But that does not tell you how there made or promise any level of quality. Any help on this?

I got them off ebay, I originally wanted eurostars but they are way too much in my opinion they are a euro taillight cause it came with the amber bulb which I changed to a blue glass bulb so it does light up white

i could be just a name for them. ive heard it used on here quite a bit with quality in the same sentence. they are the same as purelatino's.

I found EUROSTAR with a registered trademark. But I also found many manufacturers using the trademark. To make things more complicated, Eurostar is also a division(?) of European tourism (includes a train service).

Ack! [???:)]

DEPO is the brand, and they make excellent quality lights. we used to use them all the time at the body shop i worked at. they make oem style replacement and euro style aftermarket lights for thousands of makes/models.
