If you want the Neons, get them, that's all there is to it. You don't have to listen to all these guys saying "Buy performance upgrades!" If you want a nice looking car, not a fast one, go for it. Who says just cuz a car looks nice it has to be fast. If YOU like them get em. Your car should be a form of expression, almost like a piece of art (Not to be corny). Forget about everyone sayin "That's too ricy" or "that's just stupid." I think Neons look nice (if done right) But I think Huge Spoilers look stupid, but if someone wants to put one on their car, more power to them. I guess I'm jsut saying, don't ask ppl on a forum if you should put cosmetic upgrades on a car, PErformance, sure, these guys know performance stuff. But when it comes to looks, just decide yourself, or ask some close friends, not complete strangers. so, to sum it up: Get em if you like em and how they look, then ask the forum which lights to go with, or which brands, that sorta thing.

depends on the colour of the car u drive. if you drive a black car...go for it lol. black cars look great with underglows in the middle of the night. add a sound system, huge subwoofers and you're all set. and you can't get a ticket when u drive a black car. jsut turn off all your lights when the cop tries to pull u over ahahha.. ok u shouldn't take my advice.

the rules are for neon that it cant be blue or red, becuase it could look like an emergency vehicle, ie ambulance or cops or something. and i just heard yesterday that you cant have any blue or red even in the interior, but i think that is bull shiz

I wouldnt think it would be that hard. Where are you planning on putting them?

how many tubes/length are you talking.....footwells and under seats, your looking at 4x 6/10/12" tubes.

cost? not that much, kinda depends on where you buy the tubes from, and what type of tubes there are. Theres a store in town where I can buy pairs of 12" tubes for like 10$, and theyre APC brand, so that's a good deal. Check out ebay - you can get pairs of 10" tubes for like 7$.

as for how hard, not that hard either - all depends on how you want to do it. All of them run on 12V - so you can hardwire them into your fusebox. Do you want to run them some of the time, or only when the vehicle is running? If you want them running some of the time, you need to put a switch in line, which is simple enough(on/off toggles), if you want them to run when your car is on, wire them into the fusebox in a location that is always on when the car is on.

overall, the hardest part would be running the wires - but if you've done a stereo install, then wiring for that would be easier.
