I got a couple of comments about the lights I installed to replace the washer housings. What does everyone think? Should I run the hood lights or not?

comments welcome...

Best you don't drive that in NC! Blue lights mean police, and you might not be able to get away with 'em!

Well...since you asked...

:28: Get rid of 'em!

I don't like the look at all! It really cheapens an otherwise wonderful looking vehicle.

Just MHO, but you asked, and I'm not going to lie to you.

eltigre,

My vote is no as well, amigo...but remember, the demographic on this forum generally won't go for that look. Now flash the pic on the CL forum, you've got a different story!

I have to agree with the others so far ... NO :14:

But, if it suits your personality :cool: and you are under 25 :22: then you might be able to get away with it :4: .

If you are single, they don't really work well as a "chick magnet" :32:

Just a few things to consider:2:

I did see one black MDX the other day (mind you I'm in NYC) with everything on it, the full front bar, Manik side steps, tail light grille, and neon-lit license plate. My guess was the driver was probably 24, and someone that wanted a BIGGER RSX.

But, if you like the look, why not? It just shows the diversity of the MDX buyer.

I have to vote no also. But hey, it's a personal decision, and if you like it, you should keep 'em!

Well I just turned 25, so maybe the age has something to do with the variety in choices. I don't run them as much as I use too. Mainly because the cops started giving me a hard time. I'm working on a way around that though, and also working on getting my front windows tinted to match the rest of my ride. In Utah their front tint is basically nothing, but I found a way around that.

Thanks for the input though, keep them coming :2:

To each his own. Do those things squirt washer fluid?

Blue Lights

As far as the age question, I just turned 26 and I would take a pass on them. I think they look ok on other cars but on SUVs (particularly the MDX) they seem out of place. Just my opinion.

It might be interesting to start a poll of "owner profile" to get an idea of the age, location, occupation of other MDX owners. I'll throw one up and see who responds.

I find the washer to be a very valuable accessory and cannot imaging giving it up for a "cheesy" decoration:rolleyes:

Haven't been here in a while to check out how the voting was going. They do squirt out water. I've been pulled over twice for the lights, funny thing is it's only been on base, not in the local comunity.

Lights ... camera ... action

I just turned 35 and I have to say I like'm. Now hook up some blue neons on the under carriage to get that floating effect and you're working with something.:4:
