I can tell you right now , the strobes you saw and nothing like ths lite glow'* or street glows.
They are little peices of sh*t. The ones on pace ars and cop cars should run you like 300.00 for the front and 300.00 for the back!
They are very bright , the other ones look like your trying to start a lighter and it'* not working! You can go to a police station and ask them if they have sent any cars to the salavage yard and try to buy them there.
This is a great deal . It'* pretty expensive but worth every penny!

I'll have to agree.. I got my strobe units off the older police cruiser ones straight from the cops when they went into actual strobes for the headlights.. so I scored a free alternating headlight unit for free.. I have it wired up in my Cavalier before.. people took a lil while to move

In my White Bonnie... people tend to move out of my way faster.. but I have it hooked ot my fog lights for now.. going to be changing it back onto my high beams ( like in my Cavalier ) and hopefully it'll hit the light sensors at street lights to get them to change quicker ( even though they are based on a certain frequency of pulses that the actual police and fire and ambulance strobes have ). But again.. this is highly illegal and if you're ever caught for impersonating a law officer.. you might as well kiss your car and or license goodbye..

Heh... I used to have an '82 Olds Cutlass Supreme that I had set up for long-distance driving -- ah, here it is: http://www.442.com/vcs/1973_pres/andy.html -- built-in cellphone, radar detector, etc., and added a set of electronic headlight flashers as well, the kind that blink the high beams right/left/right/left/etc. I used them to flush out left-lane bandits, those nitwits that sit in the passing lane and force everyone else to go past them on the right. Great fun. Of course, if you go making like a cop, or actually trying to pull people over, you deserve whatever you get.

In the eight years that I had the car, I came upon a few traffic accidents and other roadside emergencies, and the blinkers were useful there, too. Actually it'* amazing how many genuine rescue personnel, EMTs and undercover cops are lurking out there in personal cars (not just unmarked police cars) that have all these hidden emergency lights installed. I remember seeing a car accident shortly after it happened, and the first guy who'd arrived on-scene was driving some scuzzy, dented 8-year-old Grand Am with headlight flashers on it... looked like his personal off-duty ride.
