2013 Las Vegas SEMA Coverage – Part Two

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.

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.

Lexus GS350 with JDM Golden Yellow 9005 LED Daytime Lights

The factory daytime running light on most vehicles is a standard incandescent halogen bulb which produces a dull yellow color. For most people, they would like to get rid of this light and replace it with a whiter bulb so it matches with their other aftermarket lights such as the parking lights or headlights. However, some may opt to run a deeper and richer color yellow bulb such as these LED 9005 bulbs mimicking the early 2000s style of “JDM yellow”. Thankfully, we have a solution for both the white and yellow colors.

Lexus GS350 Golden Yellow 9005 LED DRL Bulbs 1

The Lexus GS350 of this generation requires LED canbus decoders to be installed along with the JDM Yellow 9005 LED bulbs to prevent issues such as flickering and error messages. This is included automatically when purchased as our DRL kit. Each DRL kit comes with two 68-SMD 9005 LED high beam daytime lights which are available in either Yellow, Blue, or White; in this article we are showing the Yellow color. The golden yellow color that these bulbs have is perfect for the automotive enthusiast who wants a deeper and richer color version of their factory bulbs and also a bit brighter during DRL mode. However, like all our LED DRL replacement bulbs, the high beam output is greatly reduced so it is recommended for DRL usage only.

Audi Style Headlight LED Strip Lights on a Honda S2000

The Honda S2000 was not much of a popular vehicle for extensive light modification as most of them are in the automotive road racing culture which relied on pure mechanical and aero performance. However, we do come across some very clean examples of LED light modifications done on an S2000 such as this specimen. Our Audi Style LED strips are typically installed on the outside, but if you have the proper knowledge, it can be installed inside the headlights like these.

Our 20” long, 21-SMD LED strips have adhesive tape on the back of it that can be used to stick the strip onto any flat and smooth surface. They are usually installed underneath the headlight or on the bumper somewhere, but if you possess the experience to open up your headlights, this can be a result. These lights are available in three colors: Xenon White as this example shows, Ultra Blue, and Amber Yellow.

The side-shine capability allows the LED strip to be installed flat on a surface while allowing the lights to shine forward. This makes these lights very easy to install and configure to suit the needs of various applications. These Honda S2000 headlight LED strips are not for everyone, but we feel like this is a very clean example that many cars can use as an example for their installs.

Super Bright 50W H11 CREE LED Fog Lights on a 2012 BMW 535i

For such an expensive luxury vehicle, one would assume that the fog lights would be more than just regular incandescent halogen bulbs. While it is generally accepted that yellow fog lights help with visibility in less than desirable conditions, they are also not the prettiest looking items on the car at night; when you take into account that it may be also equipped with HID headlights and LED angel eyes which are all bright white in color. Our 50W H11 CREE LED fog light bulbs are the perfect solution to this dilemma.

The H11 LED bulbs for fog lights for this BMW are the brightest direct replacement bulbs we carry. Each bulb operates at 10W, but has a maximum operating capacity of 50W. This is all thanks to the super bright CREE R4 XP-E LED diodes per bulb which have two CREE diodes on the top inside a 3x magnifying optical lens and eight CREE diodes on the side to provide light from all sides. These are available in 6000K Xenon White so they are ideal for matching similar range lights.

Please keep in mind that since this is used on a European vehicle, there will be error messages and flickering issues to deal with so because of that, we do recommend selecting the optional H11/H8 Error Free Decoder Wiring Kit along with the lights to be purchased together. Without the wiring kit, error messages and flickering may appear which are quite annoying to deal with. Avoid that frustration with the plug and play wiring adapters for these H11 CREE LED fog lights.

Infiniti G37 with 9-SMD 168 LED Bulbs For Parking Lights

Parking lights are also known as city lights and are the lights that turn on at the first position of your light controls. These lights provide additional light in addition to the main low beams and are sometimes used as turn signals on certain vehicles as well. Many higher end vehicles such as this Infiniti G37 comes with factory installed HID headlights for the low beams and the yellow incandescent parking light bulbs just do not do justice next to them.

Infiniti G37 168 LED Parking Lights 1

Installed on this Infiniti G37 are our 168 LED parking lights which have 9-SMD 5050 LED diodes per bulb. These lights are rated at 6000K which makes these a much better alternative to the factory color; the color is very versatile and can match closely with HID lights that range from 4300K to 8000K. It is recommended to go with a 6000K HID light for the closest match though. These specific lights are available in either Xenon White as pictured or in 20,000K Ultra Blue which is recommended for off-road use only.

The LED parking lights are very easy to install on the vehicle as it only requires removal of the factory bulb and bulb holder from the housing. The procedure is very straight forward as it just replaces the bulb, but depending on the application that this is going on, it may require removal of other components to access the parking lights. Some vehicles may be able to access the parking lights from the top of the engine bay and some may require access from the fender liner in the wheel well. Whatever application you have, LED parking lights are a cost-effective way to turn that ugly yellow into an HID-like color that is sure to have people notice.
