so I got pulled over today and it was night time. I have blacked out tail lights. The cop thought it was a short in my tail lights. I told him no my tail lights are blacked out. and he told me "oh your lights arent bright enough." so then I asked him If I brightened my tail lights would it be legal. and he said "of course"

so the real question is
Is there a way make my brake lights shine brighter

its not a kit its just a bulb you plug in they are all over ebay look up your bulb size for your brake lights and search for it.

That seems like the general opinion over on corral.net about the bulb replacement type.. I remember 5.0resto sold a kit a while back but not sure if they still do. It wasn't just bulbs it was a board setup which seems like more of a real deal but again never had any intentions of checking it out.

btw what tail ligths do you have? the smoked clear lx tails I have aren't any dimmer then stock it's just I have to use colored bulbs so I don't get bothered.

Laser pointer tail lights?
That's what a lot of the LEDs act like, unfortunately. Very bright within a certain narrow angle range, then dimmer than stock when viewed anywhere other than straight behind the car. You're better off with a higher wattage conventional bulb.

they also sell the ones that arent just straight but a 360 degree so that it can reflect of the housing
