I have to get down on my knees directly behind the lights for it to be to bright to look at. I may blind the people siting on the curb waiting for a ride but people in cars behind me will be just fine.
Just another compliment from me, . Taking into account the brightness is good road citizenship. I guess if they were too bright, you could have done the "blackout spray" mod to mellow them out. What's neat is that you also got a unique "look" on your rear lights from the ecomod, so it's a two-for-one.

Don't you have to have a rear red reflector? Otherwise great project.

LEDs don't need a standard reflector as each one has its own inside it to project the light. Though if youre referring to visibility for reflections from other vehicles lights then you have a good point.

I would agree on the safety reflector point except that there appears to be another set in the bumper of the car already.

If there are already reflectors in the bumper then its probably ok. I don't see a set in the pics above and the (at least in CA) highway patrol can be picky.

Cool, very bright. (I might say too bright can be bad, exacerbates my migraines at times, also the new yellow police bars are so friggin bright at night that I can't see the road. But considering that the police now come around from the right side I don't think I will hit them.)

Buuut, for Fog it will definitely keep people from running into you. In fact for fog maybe a set on full for running lights, and a set just for brakes.

I know in Europe there is a standard for a rear-facing red fog lamp, I don't know why you can't get them over here.
