I received my taillight from customLED. I like it. Quality is nice. Miles ahead of the CA kit I had. Plus, the CA kit had already failed. It was 3 years old but less than 10K miles on it.
It is brighter than the CA, and there is no trouble seeing it through a smoked lens. The circuit board is black so it blends into the background a little better. There are fewer LED's then the CA but they are brighter and overall more effective. I think.
The programming is relatively easy. You hook the demo wire to ground to toggle to the desired setting. There are a few different settings to choose from including a "demo" mode (more on that in a minute). Yellow turns, red turns, brake light flash control, and probably more that I'm forgetting.
There are a few downsides for me. The settings are nice to control, but there should be more options. I don't ever need a "demo" mode. I can't think of any time I want my rear light to flicker like a dance party. Ever. I would like to trade my demo mode for real custom programming options.
There is no way to completely disable the flashing brake response
, and flashing brake lights irritate me. When I apply the brakes I want the light to just come on. I don't want it to flash 3 or 5 times and then come on. People can argue that it's a safety feature but honestly I think it's confusing for the average public. They can't handle texting and driving and learning new signal responses all at the same time. Minor gripe. My own opinion.
Provided wiring is decent. It's just standard. This kit needs to be hard wired to some extent, there are no ways around it. The CA kit offered a direct plug-in for the bulb socket. There are no plugs on this one, just wire ends. Not hard to do just be aware. Also, I added some hot glue to the connections on the back of the board to protect from the constant buzz of the 919. It was a trick i stole from the CA kit.
That's my short review. I hope it hasn't been too negative. I really like this kit overall I just tend to be very particular about stuff.
Thanks to the WT guys who took the time to have a custom product made and then offering a group buy on top of it. Really, that's awesome. Thanks.
