I saw some post from back in 2013 about ebay led taillights. I Was wondering what is the brightest tailight to install on a 2012 civic sedan.

There aren't any aftermarket tail lights for the 12 sedan, 12-13 coupe or 14-15 coupe. Only the 13-15 sedan has them. You can swap your halogen bulbs with LED bulbs but thats about it
Unless there's a headlight reflector assembly that's designed to work specifically with LEDs, he'd be better off either leaving them alone with the OEM bulbs or else replace them with higher-output halogens. "Direct replacement" LED headlights in OEM reflector housings won't do what the owner expects them to do... in many cases, the lighting pattern and down-the-road visibility just won't be the same as with OEM bulbs.

I know but theres people that dont care even though the will look dimmer than halogens because they can say they have led tail lights.....i have a few friends from experience wgo sometimes i want to hit with a shovel. Only thing i changed was my reverse lights and those are bright as hell which helps in my dark parking lot when backing into a spot lol

I did the backup light LED changeover and will most probably do the same for the front and back turnsignals (I do a lot of night driving) but until there's an aftermarket LED headlight reflector that fits a '14 Civic, I'll stick with my Sylvania Ultra Brights (6000˚K).

Hiya everyone, Figure Id post in here. Found some LED Tailights on ANZO USA. Sadly because of my low post count I'm not able to post a link to it. They have them for 2012 Sedan for $280 bucks. They have a Black housing with LED lights and clear housing. They look pretty cool, a bit better than the stock in my opinion. I have some on order myself and will make sure to post when I have em installed!!

Well i stand corrected then. The red/clear ones look pretty good pretty much almost oem which i like
Its no worries, wasn't trying to cause a fuss. Figured us Civic guys/gals stick together lol. But yea, those Taillights do look pretty nice. I have the darker Grey (Polished Metal Metallic) so I think it will have the right look im going for.

And if not, spray tint is a thing XD lol

I got them off of Amazon, search up the specs and they should come up. I did buy the last ones in stock so idk if that will be an issue when restocking them or anything. The brand was called EagleEyes.
