is there any way to increase the lighting when backing up like an auxiliary light or making the two white lights on the tails brighter? What do you or anyone else say?

old_s13 is no longer on FA. Sorry to say
I've seen high wattage reverse lights in a JC Whitney catalog, basically an H3 bulb in a standard 1156 socket.

I have the same problem, new bulbs made no diff and sometimes they don't even work. The lens is clean as it can be.. I think my wiring is messed up somewhere.. http://www.freshalloy.com/ http://www.freshalloy.com/

ken<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial[/img]boo hoo! i change the cd's without looking at 90 mph and never use a map. but then i used to lean over, head completely under the dash level, to shut the passenger-side door in my camaro going 80... actually none of the things i mention above sound particularly intelligent. keep the dome light stock, turbo180sx, keep the dome light stock. http://www.freshalloy.com/

ok point taken.. now what about HID reverse lights? or pure white, or blue?

why not put some fog lights or something on your rear bumper? if you chose them and place them right they might not look that out of place. maybe even put them inside the car behind the hatch/rear window.

HID reverse lights? And how do these work? Kind of stupid to put in a transformer just to be able to see when backing up. Unless they are higher wattage, any kind of colored or "HID look" bulb will be useless. I don't even have reverse lights, I never knew it such a big deal.

i'm just joking. i look at the cd when i set a new one. actually i either know which page of the case things are on or i just ready the cd's i plan to listen to on the front. but i still recognize them in the dark.

on the other hand, i DO know every street in the US as well as southern canada, northern mexico, and a small portion of the soviet union. when the street layout is somehow altered, i use my jedi powers to update my mental maps. you better not piss me off, i can choke you with my mind from here! http://www.freshalloy.com/

haha, the illumination of the gauges and radio and etc is enough to tell what disc it is! http://www.freshalloy.com/

if nothing else, wait to pass under a streetlamp. that brief glance at 90 is all I need http://www.freshalloy.com/ (yet another reason to leave the moonroof sunvisor in the trunk, lol)
