Custom 08+ Impreza Hatch LED Rear Reflectors

So my friend plays Forza 3 on XBOX, driving a 2008 STI.

He decided to play with the "outside the car view" and noticed that whenever you hit the brakes the lower bumper reflectors lit up, and he says to himself, that **** looks pretty cool.

So he busts out his laptop and starts looking for some JDM LED brake light for those, and no such thing exists. This makes him a little unhappy so he send me a message, knowing I make custom LED modules and such and we brainstorm.

He went and bought some OEM reflectors from subaru ($12 for the pair) and he shipped them up to me. A couple weeks later, I have this made:





So what do you guys think?

That's a cool idea and it turned out pretty nice.

Honestly though (just my opinion), I've never really been a fan of any kind of reflector. If I had my way, I'd smooth those areas over and paint them to match the rest of the car so nobody would know they were ever there.
