underbody lights

i think that underbody lights are made illegal on a state by state basis, but everywhere I have been in the midwest have allowed them on cars. The rules I have heard are that the only colors you are allowed to display while you are driving are green and white. If you are parked, however, you can display any color you want. I actually know of a lighting kit that you should take a look at if you are interested. It is called colorstorm and you can find it at www.streetfxseries.com. I know the owner of the company so if you decide to buy then you can get a 10% discount. Just type "thestorm" in the coupon code box when you are ready to check out. Good luck

two words.............NEON SUCKS!!!!!!!!!! it's a big waste of money and i think it looks like sh*t. get something that actually helps the performance of your car instead of makes you look like a tard. i'm sorry, i just hate neon like none other.

I'd say its really up to you, how much do you like them and how good you think they'll look on your car. I'd say if you like them enough and thats what you want then go for it.

If your going for a look that'll make your car stand out in the night life, then Neons are the way to go. Just don't go overboard with it.

IMPORT PRIDE

the part that's bold, underlined and in italics is what confuses me.. i drive an import, yet i want to do performance upgrades to it.. is this the way of sayin' that all import drivers are ricers and don't know a thing about customising a car's performance?... hmm... meh.. i'm just confused as to why he has to scream IMPORT PRIDE...?

Why risk being caught with neons? Put that cash to good use, buy something nice for a loved one, CAI (like everyone else is saying), deck, or something that makes your car go. It's really pointless to spend money on something that is quite useless and may get you into trouble. Besides, neons have a limited lifespan, around 20,000 hours to 30,000. That is A LOT of time, but by hour 100, you will probaly grow up and realize it was a stupid waste of money. My advice is to spend that cash on anything but neon lights.
