Sequential LED trunk light strip on a '14 REx

Here's a video of a light strip I installed at the rear of my car. Definitely not for everyone but I like the way it looks.

Pretty creative. I do like it.
A fanatic of all things electric. Ridables like electric ice chests and stand up scooters I adore. Drones like DJI, I root for. I'm a fan of both, but nothing beats my love for my 2016 i3 Rex with Deka World. Shhh, don't tell my wife.

What does the strip do when braking with a turn signal on which is a common situation?

MattyGigawatts –

I'm with you on wanting to customize your ride but lighting isn't the place to do that.

I've been driving i3s for eight years so I know how the rear lighting works. Were I to be following your car with its non-standard lighting, I'd be confused by the modifications you have made.

The mods might seem cool but they're dangerous to the drivers that are behind you.

edit: just realized the OP's post is four years back!
