My only gripe is I wish the turn signal leds were a little brighter (they're a little hard to see in bright sunlight).

The set I purchased was from ebay (eBay My World - dldudrnjs)
What inside brake light do you mean?

As I explained in my other thread, there is no correlation between cruise and taillight. The brake signal simply "disengages" the cruise when you step on the pedal. It's the same as the pause button on the steering wheel. The circuit doesn't know whether there are LEDs or filament bulbs nor the number of them.

I've had these lights for quite awhile now and they've been great. Yeah, the turn signal isn't as bright in the day, but where I live in Florida no one uses them anyway. At night when they count they are fine. The lights themselves are fairly bright when the brakes are applied so no issues there. The cruise control isn't affected (I use it all the time) and the provided resistors keep hyper flashing in check. This is one of the best mods i've done to my car, the look is sick and the quicker reaction time of them lighting up helps keep people off your bumper.

Hey clc130, if you do the full brake mod drop me a line. I've been meaning to do it myself just haven't gotten around to it.

I also purchased mine from the following Ebay member.

New 4 Dr Sedan Pair Set Red Clear LED Tail Lights Lamps | eBay

and they make a smoked version also, didnt look to good in pic but may look better on a REALLY dark blue that some Sonatas come in (like mine )

Could the entire brake light mod be applied to these after market led tail lights too?

Yes, having to run a wire from the outside lights to the inside set, in theory.
And those cheaper ones are cheaper for a reason, they aren't made as well.
