Title says it.

Take a guess at what my next lighting mod will be. If you need a hint, I will give one, but I don't want to give it away just yet :D

It's either a CCFL halo that will be hung from the interior roof so you always look angelic, or a light bulb so it always looks like you're having an idea. Anything else would definitely not suit you and so you should not do it.

You're not going to mimic the so called "bling lights" are you? Beyond that, I'm not sure. I looked up some pictures of the TL but had to close the browser after 15 seconds because I couldn't stand how gloriously UGLY those cars are. Seriously, Acura's designers should have been fired a long time ago but there's just no excuse for how terrible their current models look.

HELLLLLLLLLLLL no. And yeah, they're ugly.. but they do have one feature (which may be present on other cars, but I haven't noticed it) that I really like (the third generation only). It wasn't there prior to the 3G, and they removed them in 2009 again for lord-knows-what-reason. Our hatchbacks have them, but I'm gonna alter them a little to make them like the TL's.

I think that should give it away by now lol

Okay, I'll admit. I don't know and don't have anything else to contribute other than perhaps this animated gif. Which doesn't play unless you click on it because I fail at this forum. I'll just go now.

i was going to say dual fog lights but that's 4th gen TL. I am guessing front/ rear turn signals?
ALSO, I really like the design of the new gen acura's; Yes I realize there's the whole controversial "Power Plenum" upper grille
thing but that's one thing that I really like about the car. It's more aggressive (looks like aerodynamic small tanks lol)
Anyways, I digress...that was my guess..more side/rear turn signals?

Close!

Essentially I plan on using customled.com 's "magic blinker" to turn my sidemarkers into sidemarkers in addition to just turn signals. The magic blinker will let them act as running lights normally, and signals also. I think it'd be a pretty neat idea with leds, which is my plan.
This is basically how the Acura TL uses them and I kinda like it :)

Aww, c'mon -- flashy lights are much more important than school. :grin:  j/k

Can't wait to see the results.  If I had those things on mine I would want them to work that way!
