. No lens modification is required which significantly reduces cost in addition to retaining a much more flowing appearance.

How does it work?

Until recently, Red, Amber/orange were the only LED colors available in the lower part of the visual spectrum, but new LED technology has provided Yellow LEDs. With a wavelength of between 585 and 595Nm, these 100mA 40,000 mcd LEDs emit a brilliant yellow which turns to amber when it passes though a red filter lens.

This is the result (this is an all-red lens)

The good news: it also works with Tinted tail lights. This is a test on my super-dark tinted tail lights: (smoked cherry will be about twice as bright)

With the black ones, a plastic cap would eeasily do the job. but on the red ones, I think it would look out of place.
