Shakotan Z (lots of Oics)

Recommended Posts

going home this weekend to do a couple things, new bulbs for my taillights , and i need to elongate my exhaust so it doesn't get caught in my bumper. might do a small boso pipe, just come up about 3 feet with it cut on an angle. nothing too crazy. and bulbs, any you guys recommend, wanna make sure they are bright enough to be easily noticeable and last a while.

I would go LED. If you get the "dome" style, thwy will light rhe area's llike a normal incandescent, but will be alot brighter, and last alot longer. They are a little more spendy, BUT that extra life is worth it.
