Default JWM RED - LED tail lights - Comparison photos

I recently bought another set of LED tail lights from JWMotoring. These are a special darker red that JWMotoring calls JWM RED.

I had previously tried their 'lightly' tinted tail lights and was looking for something between the regular RED LED tail lights and the tinted LED tail light that almost looked black.

These are darker than regular LED tail lights but still clearly RED.

I thought I would post up some photos showing these JWM RED LED tail lights compared to the regular LED tail lights.

JWM RED are the outer lights on each side and the regular LED tail lights are the inner lights on each side.













In this photo you can clearly see that the small center reflector in each light still works just fine when light is shined on them.

Thanks for posting...

The deeper red definitely looks better in my opinion. I really don't like the "chrome finned" look on the backing plate of the eagle eye lights, and these almost hide that. I would like to see some of these in person. Your car looks good.

I have the dark JWM lights, I shoulda got the JWM reds. Oh well.

Its a great product and I am glad that I got them from Jhonathan.

YO Jhonathan, whats the chances of that center reflector being removed and running a separate LED bulb in the center? I know what it wont accept 2 bulb connectors at once but maybe a small hole in the back of the fixture and a clean splice job? Theres gotta be a way to light up the middle of these fixtures and have more than just a ring?

It's still there in the full sun. The only way to get rid of it is with our tinted sets I'm afraid.

These weren't out when you ordered those.

The tails are impossible to get apart. I've tried. Not sure how else to make that happen without taking them apart.

I'm sure you could cut and install something. It's not something I would offer. I don't think we could
sell them that way.

Correct with the headlights on. When they're off they won't light up until you brake or use your signals.

I'll try to get the inner lights installed tomorrow and post up a few more photos.


Yes, if you don't see the center brake light on then it is the 'dimmed' light. Brakes applied makes them even brighter.

I like the look better. Probably not your car, but I've seen a few LEDs that are too bright at nite, almost blinding. (I've posted before that I have even seen green LED stop lights that are so bright at nite it has to be awful for some folks.)

No, The JWM RED is a unique to a set of LED tail lights available from JWMotoring (a very good forum vendor). They take regular LED tail lights and apply a DARK RED tint to them (and clear coat).

The regular red is what you get normally when you order Eagle Eyes LED tail lights for a C6.

I actually like the staggered/mixed look of the darker outside with the lighter interior. Best of both worlds..

I drove it to work today with that look.


I do plan on changing the inside ones out to the darker red later today though.

The JWM red looks to be a bit more safe too. The led red blends into the standard Eagle Eye red. There is no question if you hit your breaks with our red.

Anyone else see what I'm seeing?

I agree, especially during the day. The slightly darker JWM RED helps the LED's stand out during the day, AND quiet the brightness down slightly at night, so as not to blind the person following you.

FYI - those photos aren't with the brake lights on.
