hey kdude,

it depends on the road conditions....if u drive on bad roads with lots of speedbreakers then i advise u not to put neons. n the esteem when fully loaded has a tendency to scrape speedbreakers....n once that happens ur neons wud be history.

The neons u get here arent really that good....they are prone to break sooner or later. n for arnd rs.6000 they arent cheap.

so think abt it n make ur decsion...n keep in mind that once u have ur neons u'l have to be very careful how u drive ur car.

Ok Neons are great if u are going to use the the car respectfully and its a crowd puller nothing looks great on a car but neons and on dark street the look amazing BUT there is a down side they easily get damaged and are breakable 6000 is a lot of money but check this out if u use the same cash to modify ur engine or buy some performance parts which would be a great
investement towards you and ur car but in the end its up to u::

they are awesome for your car, give it good looks. but are a pain break easily. already broke two sets. absolute no no if you drive your car outside the city limits...as in get on the highway.

I knew you would pull me into this vulken

anyways

neons are good
just gives the + to your car definetely a head turner for as someone quoted
they are expensive but i dont think they would break or one has to change his driving habits..........
have a thick plastic casing shielding my lights which still throws the effect but does not allow anything to hit the lights now that is something you have to think of while fixing it ........
just check it from time to time to see if the casing is still intact

cya around

Some of them look really crappy though... I was out a few days back and I saw this Ikon with REALLY CRAPPY neons - you could see the tubes, and it looked more like a fading blue tube light than anything else. It really took away from the car cause it was badly installed. Be careful of those ones. And if and whn you do put them on, do post some pics...!

I have installed really good looking cheap alternatives on my car...total costs came about rs. 1000 with fitting. I have pics on my cell...will transfer and put it up in a few days. For what i paid...i think they look really good. And yes i have already broken about 3 of them tubes. but really cheap to replace in my case. Wait for the pics.
