LED 3rd brake light
 
Who makes the miata LED center brake light? Not looking for DIY, looking for PNP. Thanks

KG works. I'v got one, about $100 from Rspeed, not sure if they still carry it.

jayc72 01-14-2008 03:38 PM

I'm sure MOSS carries one.

Made by IL Motorsports. Only 3 left, then no more since he's going out of business. I have this on mine, very very nice.

if it wasn't clear & chrome when off i'd get one

Ben 01-14-2008 08:28 PM

I'm going to smoke it so it's invisible when off against the black trunklid--but that one does look kind of ricey. The one on droptopdrifter's car looks really good.

paul 01-14-2008 08:36 PM

which does he have? that but smoked?

Ben 01-14-2008 08:38 PM

I don't know. It looks better than what was pictured. His is not smoked. I didn't even realize he had an aftermarket brake light until he hit the brakes, and then the leds in the center light came on so much quicker than the incandescents in the low mount lights, I decided I needed one too.

Judging by the pictures I've seen of his car so far, I think his is the M2 version, but just gets shaded because of the spoiler. Then again, they could have done something different with that version instead of the chrome.
It's actually not too bad/noticeable with it mounted on the car, but too "euro tail light-ish" for my tastes, so it's getting a light treatment of VHT Nightshades whenever I get to it. Just to clarify, when I said it's very very nice, I did mean in function. I watch this thing light up the every reflective part on the car behind me at night.

Ben, i think mine is the Moss version. But to double check, i'll go home tonight and look at the box.http://i1.tinypic.com/7x3j1v6.jpg

You know, i should make it a blinking 3rd brake light just for fun lol

Ben 01-15-2008 09:21 AM

blinking, flashing, or strobing = :slap:

can't you just crawl under the dash and screw in the tail light switch so that it will engage the lights with minimal pedal movement? I'm not sure about the miata but on the 240 if i barely set my feet on the pedal it lights them up :dunno:

If it won't blink to the beat of funkytown I don't want one.

Shigidy BAM.

I did it. I like it.

Stealth97 01-15-2008 10:55 AM

I took mine apart and painted the chrome reflector black. It almost disappears when its off.
