This one. Stock OEM. Fits in perfectly, uses existing bulb and looks really nice!

I've gotten two different ebay LED ones, one red and one clear, but they're mostly all the same. Mine both worked fine and did not stay on.

I've had the red one for a couple years now and it's still in the car.

I bought the AM piece. Fits perfectly but its looks more clear than smoked to me. I dont have an issue with the lights staying on. I may just end up buying some tint to cover it. I really dont like the clear look. Looks out of place with my blackout panel and gen 5 lights.

Word. Sorry I forgot to check back here. Been really busy. Mine doesn't stay on either. I'm pretty sure I'll end up tinting it too - a little clear for my tastes as well. It kind of matches the clear center portion of the Gen 5's though.

I've noticed mine gets condensation inside when I wash my car. I need to keep an eye on that.

Looks great lit up though. It's good to have full LED brake/tail lights now.

Word of warning about the tint-because they insist on putting that raised ridge in the center of ALL the third brake lights out there, tint does not stay on it very well. I tinted mine originally, and it started to lift all around that ridge and get bubbles under it after less than 2 years. So I ended up taking the tint off and for now I have tinted taillights and an untinted red LED third brake light. I'll address that eventually.

Also I tried to put niteshades on the clear one I bought and it looked like poop when it was lit up. I didn't pay much for it, which was good since I never used it.

I'm glad to see they fixed this problem!

Why buy one and then need to put tint on it??
Check my link posted on page 1. Reputable vendor and very high quality. OEM, fits perfectly. Tinted
Don't go cheap

Very good point. I didnt realize it was so clear looking when I ordered it. The tint is $10, worth the effort after spending $50 on the lights.

@charliebrown, did your lights come with an extra rectangle piece in the wiring with double stick tape on it? I wonder if thats some sort of resistor deal to keep the lights off when off.

Sorry but I'm not about to pay $50 for a non-led third brake light that somebody put niteshades on.
