Default Brighter parking lights

Hey guys. I like the corner lights in the bumpers of our cars but I'd like for both them and maybe even the corner lights by our headlights to be brighter still. You know kidna like how the TransAms / camaros have the really bright lights somehow.. (how do they do that anyway)? So What should I go about doing? I haven't seen much progress with LED lights in many cars not made for them in mind (my cousin'* 200sx has LED tail lamps and the problem with LED lights is that they usually come as a wall of about 20 LEDs and they all point strait forward so in the end the whole light looks dimmer because they don't )))GLOW((( like normal bulbs they have a little more projection forward so unless anyone has had great success with these i dont know..)

Are there any brighter bulbs some company makes anyone would recommend? Anyone have any luck with LEDs? Remember that my "SYSTEMS MONITOR" doesn't work so I don't really care about the monitor going haywire on me because it doesn't show anything on it regarding lights ever.

Thanks a bunch

Looks great! My cousin and I ( on his chevy beretta gtz (1990)) made altezza type lights for his car and when we opened up the tail lights (just as the guy in the link you mentioned did) we noticed how much room for improvement there was on the reflectivity of the tail lights. We started putting reflective tape on it but we didn't buy really flexible tape and had to give up. This idea seems like a good one. Even better would be to see where else we could fit this reflective tape.. front parking lights? Headlights?!!

Tell me how it goes. I think of going down to the junkyard and getting the taillights off of another '87 bonnie they got down there.
