Not Zondas but my buddies have modded GT-Rs, F10 M5, F13 M6, Ford GT, Mclaren MP4, 458, LP-560, Z06, NSX, LF-A, E63, C63, SLS, 911 Turbo, etc so my car is already "low rent".

Why do you care what other people think, and why are you letting other people influence your decision? If you want something but your afraid of what other people might think about you, then that's pretty sad.

Then again, it's just courtesy lights.

You don't think it's good to have other people's input? I've made some questionable (now that I look back) modding decisions in the past that I wouldn't have made if I had gathered other peoples' input first.

To a certain extent, I agree. As for the mods, you did them because you wanted to do them. I don't think there is anything wrong with that.

True, but ultimately, they were a waste of money. If I could have avoided that by having some good car buddys' input, that would have been nice. I have that now (although they can be harsh, but I give it back so...).

Anyone else have a problem with the emblem washing out and losing color over time? I think the light is so bright and hot that the color burned away.

yes this seems to be a reoccurring problem
but the films are cheap so i just order more when they become washed out
however probably not as easy to get the film replacement overseas

after using mine for two months, the logos are all faded, and i put my oem bulbs back.

It was fun while it lasted, but they burn out the logo way too quick
