    Brake Lights

    A few people have been watching the new Noble body we are designing. They asked if I could change brake lights to something more modern. I've heard this from many non-Noble owners throughout the years.

    Frank has some custom lights we are installing.

    If you have some ideas, please post samples. I need some ideas of what people like.

    I think LED's are the way to go.

    I purchased NOS Mondeo MK1 tail lamps from a seller in the UK. These are the same lamps used on the Eurospec cars with the amber turn signals. I am also in the process of building LED tail lamps from the Hundai Sonata lamps used on US Spec cars...................TBD.

    Ferrari has made good use of round lights- they are inexpensive and very universal.

    I wondered about euro spec Sonata tail lights. Don't they have amber turns?

    I think the Audi range looks good and also the new golf rear lights. I also like the way the mustang lights when indicating have three different lights

    As bright and as visible as possible, as folks cant stop staring at the car, I am always worried about them not noticing me breaking as they are too busy gawking

    spec- I agree. Audi has very nice lights. I was going to use the r8 lights on one of our designs.
    i think to keep things bright, LED is the way to go.

    I know one of the Q1 owners, Bill, did something unique with his tail lights. I'll email him today.
