The Switchback/Indicating USR sidemarkers....

USR send me some sidemarkers to test fit and must I say, am impressed....we TESTed out 2 units and these are the ones which will go in production

They are ~6000K white
Front's blink: Amber-OFF-Amber-OFF
Rear's blink: Red-OFF-Red-OFF
Running: Lights run WHITE

When you lock/unlock your car, they blink WHITE

If you already have all LED indicators in all 4 corners and have either the load resistor or the resistor mod, these will NOT hyperflash....

Here is a small video of the little devils in Action:

Rear:

Will get some pix over the week

Hmm, I might be interested in these. Will he be making them in smoked and without the white? I'd rather just have indicating-smoked side markers.

And about hyper flashing, what if you use the hazards? Then all of them would try to indicate resulting in more than .24ohms? Right?

Thanks Anil! Hopefully it's just the white balance of the iPhone, but they still look like a 5k white, rather than 6k. I know it's hard to capture the actual color in a photograph, but if you say it's definitely a cooler white than the previous versions, I'll believe you.

They are great cameras too have but not worth the money if you're not going to use it to it's full potential. If you're just gonna leave it on auto and take pics of family events or whatever then it's not worth all the money. A nice point and shoot will do just fine.

no sir....i think its either this or cutting your sidemarker and DIY....

i know Andy has a very well done DIY....

beside, IMO this looks cleaner on couple color cars, NBP being one of them....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PimeoiwSZeI

Will get some pix over the week
We would like to thank SWOOSH for all his time involved of getting this product developed and become available with test fitment and wiring installation. Thank you

USR is now officially released this product. No Error SwitchBack Smoke Side Marker lights for 04-08 Acura TL (please note Type-S's rear plug is different than the base models, so for type-S, modification on the connector will be needed).



There are 2 stages.
Stage 1 = White LED for both FRONT and REAR
while
Stage 2 = Amber LED for FRONT and Red LED for REAR.

There are people who does not want REAR to be WHITE LED, worry not, use tap splice to simply tap the extra positive wire on the back of the new switchback side marker to tap into the original side marker's positive wire from the car, then you will have it light up RED all the time.

Here are the link to purchase the item on our site:

http://www.uniquestyleracing.com/20actlsm4pis.html

And for the special intro price which will end on Mid-June, use the coupon code "swooshsb" to get the discounted price. Thanks everyone!

Best Regards,

USR
