One car light that many people don’t give much thought to is the rear license plate light; outside of looking at our rear view mirror and side mirrors, we don’t pay much attention to what’s behind us nor can we see it. Since the 1970s, every manufactured vehicle in the United States come equipped with rear license plate lights. Because this is standard equipment on our vehicle, we put it by the wayside in favor of other “sexy” car lights. But that doesn’t mean license plate lights can’t have flair either.
Occasionally, we rent GMCs from U-Haul to transport our products because we find their service to be reliable. We can always count on them to provide clean pick-up trucks with no issues. This time around, we discovered an opportunity to test our new LED light bar. The opportunity especially worked out because the GMC model we rented was a Sierra 1500, which was exactly the trim we wanted to test on. And so, we decided to take liberties with our rental truck to install our new behind the grille 150W LED Light Bar for the 2014-up GMC Sierra 1500.
If you’re someone is out and about on the road quite often, you will notice the iconic Mercedes Benz out there that have a special light up emblem that is exclusive to Mercedes Benz only. The illuminated Mercedes emblem is so eye-catching and when you combine the light source with the extra large emblem, everyone will be guaranteed to notice. The illuminated emblem has gotten so popular that many Mercedes Benz owners are looking to swap out their non-illuminated version for its illuminated counterpart. From the factory, the illuminated emblem is only available on the higher trims and more premium models. Fortunately, the iJDMTOY Mercedes Benz illuminated LED base allows Mercedes owners to swap out their standard emblem to a base that lights up the factory emblem for a look that is just like the premium trims.
One of the most popular cars for drivers of all ages is the trusty Honda Civic with its sporty digs and sheer affordability. Since there are so many Civics on the road, drivers of the Civic like to spice up their rides and make them as unique as possible. This includes adding exterior mods, such as new lighting kits. We have here a set of brilliant red LED bumper reflectors for the 2016-up Honda Civic that sits on both ends of the lower bumper and adds a lot more lighting onto the car. The Honda Civic LED rear reflectors will definitely make your Honda Civic look exceptionally unique since its not everyday that you see these JDM styled lights on USDM cars.
The LA Auto Show is here again, and it’s one of our favorite car shows to attend since it showcases concept future cars with cars of the present. Here are a couple interesting tidbits we noticed this year:
As most of us are well aware, the Scion brand is no more and has been dismantled after 13 years of giving us some of the coolest, most affordably hip cars on the roads. While majority of Scion models have been completely discontinued like the the Scion tC, iQ, xB, and xD. We can still see remnant of the Scion brand that’s been absorbed into the Toyota lineup. These former Scion models are now branded as Toyota, with the extremely Scion FR-S rebadged as the Toyota 86, the Scion iA as the Yaris iA, and the Scion iM as the Corolla iM. Plus, we also see the Toyota line expanding, with the newly unveiled Toyota C-HR.
