With the last part of our coverage of the SEMA show and the cool things we saw there, we’ll wrap up with some more modifications that we saw on cars that we also offer on our website. We saw many cars with tinted head and tail lights, a direct fit LED fog light assembly on a Scion FR-S and some multi-color interior lights! While these cars probably did not get them from us, it’s still pretty cool to see these types of products being used and hopefully it’ll give you an idea of what to do on your car.
Vinyl tints are popular because they are easily installed and removed without any damage to the application. There are many colors to choose from, but the most common is the black dark tint which puts a darker shade on the application. If there are any issues with law enforcement or if you just don’t want the darker shade on anymore, you can easily peel it off and you can start off fresh again.
At this year’s SEMA event, there were quite a lot of Scion FR-S and Subaru BR-Z’s that made up a large percentage of the show vehicles inside and outside of the convention center. On this particular Scion FR-S, we saw an LED fog light assembly similar to what we carry lit up. Subtle upgrades such as this change the look of the vehicle quite dramatically.
Last, but not least we saw a car with multi-colored LED interior lights underneath the dash and on the side doors. These lights were automatically cycling through the colors so they were most likely in the “Demo” mode function. These easy to install lights connect directly to the car battery and are controlled at your finger tips with a radio remote control. Since LEDs draw such little power, there are no worries of the lights being in demo mode all day at the show and draining the battery.
That is it for our coverage of SEMA. It is very fortunate of us to live within a reasonable driving distance of such a big event that happens every year in Sin City. We get to see all the creative and head turning builds of the year gathered together in one building. In addition to that, there is huge aftermarket support from automotive retailers and car manufacturers at SEMA. If you ever have a chance to go to SEMA, make sure you take that chance as it will be a memorable experience.
Let’s continue with part two of the SEMA show coverage this year.
Speaking of race cars, there is also this awesome Radical SR3 on display! This road legal race car that can be purchased (if you have deep pockets) and driven on the street as well. Check out those headlights; it seems to be some type of LED ring setup from what we can see.
For our American muscle fans, we didn’t forget about you either; this Tire Rack sponsored Chevrolet Corvette seems like it would be a beast on the curved roads of a race track.
There is a countless amount of American muscle cars on display at SEMA and it would be difficult to compile all of them into one post so we’ll hand pick the ones that stand out like this custom full metal body 1968 Dodge Charger built by Scott Spock Racing and Nelson Racing Engines. If a twin turbo 9.4 Hemi V8 doesn’t get you excited, we don’t know what will.
This 1932 Ford Roadster from Fuller Hot Rods is very unique; a custom all-wheel drive system powered by a 750 horsepower BOSS 429 big block motor. Custom work like this can’t be left unappreciated.
More hot rod and rat rod style builds like this sitting outside the convention walls. I wonder how this thing is even driven at that ride height. Custom modified vehicles are common at SEMA and are used to display the workmanship of many automotive shops around the country.
How about a Chevrolet Van with a supercharged V8 motor placed in the cargo area? Sure, if it’s possible, then why not.
Or maybe you may want your packages delivered in a unique way with this slammed FedEx delivery truck.
This old rustic old school GMC truck is raw and unrefined, but it’s definitely a head turner.
Modern lifted trucks like this matte black Ford Super-Duty dualie is on display outside with a variety of other lifted trucks. As we said earlier in the post, SEMA is filled with a variety of cars that appeal to all types of automotive enthusiasts so let’s move onto the exotics!
This Pagani Zonda Huayra is oozing with carbon fiber goodness and with a Mercedes-Benz AMG V12 Bi-turbo engine powering this thing, you may need a towel to wipe the drool off your face. Those Italians sure know how to build an exotic super car.
The Liberty Walk Ferrari 458 Italia makes us speechless at how amazing this car looks like.
Here we have what looks to be a modified Ferrari F430 on air suspension which allows it to achieve this extremely low vehicle height. SEMA is always about new products and trends that are floating and evolving in the automotive industry and we’ll give you a preview based on the pictures we saw.
LED tail lights seem to be a common replacement item for most Subaru BR-Z and Scion FR-S owners; an aesthetic and functional upgrade that looks and performs well.
One of the UK's most popular series since 1977, Top Gear now brings its high-adrenaline action entertainment to America. The series tracks the colorful history of the automobile and showcases an offbeat celebration of the art of driving, featuring super-cars, extreme stunts and challenges, car reviews and celebrity interviews, as well as the eccentric adventures of its hosts with Top Gear's customary wit and humor. Hosted by comedian and car buff Adam Ferrara, champion rally and drift racer Tanner Foust and racing analyst Rutledge Wood, Top Gear explores the history of America, one lap at a time.
In one particular episode, the host Adam Ferrara mentioned about how the use of LED lighting has influenced the automotive industry and the example Adam picked is the all new Audi style LED headlights for the all new 2011 Audi R8 and the LED used for BMW Angel Eyes, for example, the 2011 BMW F10 5 Series, and the 2011 BMW E92 3 Series Coupe after the facelift.
Ever since this episode, we have got loads of customers emailing and calling us on to find out how to change the previous kind of yellowish angel eyes to the new LED look.
The answer is the high power LED Angel Eye Ring Marker Bulbs which can convert the stock halogen type angel eye rings to the new LED look, just like the all new 2011 BMW E92 3 Series. This kind of BMW Angel Eye upgrades will basically replace your stock H8 halogen bulbs with the wide-angle shinning H8 LED bulbs. On each bulb, there are two pieces 3W high power LED lights made by CREE to fully power up both the high beam and low beam halo rings. The installation is very simply, just plug and play and the special error free decoders in this BMW Angel Eye upgrade will make sure the H8 LED bulb to fully light up and not trigger error message on BMW's dashboard.
We have received some awesome pictures for a customer with a 2008 BMW E92 335i with HID headlights and HID fog lights upgrades plus the high power LED BMW Angel Eye upgrades. You can see from the pictures that even when the HID lights are on, you can still clearly see the BMW Angel Eye rings thanks to the high power LED bulbs.
Top Gear is RIGHT, LED will a major cosmetic makeup for car makers to make the future cars look better and the LED lightings will also shape the cars in the future dramatically.
