Wired it so that the tail lights don't come on except when braking?
At least, that's my understanding?

Sounds very, very illegal.

I think what Xeno is saying is that down under, the trunk mounted lights are just dummies from the factory. All he did was add additional lights in these dummies so that they light up upon braking.

His original tail lights still work.

Did the "dude" check that the existing wiring/fuse could carry 3-5 additional amps? I'd hate to be the "dude" behind you after your brake light fuse blows....

The inner lights serve only as running lights for the US models. It would be nice if they could be wired to act as brake lights too. There was a thread on this a while back, but I can't recall where it was. Anyone have any ideas on this? Is it even possible? Seems like you could tap into the brake lights in the outer set of tail lights. I assume you'd need dual filiment bulbs for the inner lights, though.

they r dual filiment bulbs ...
i was gonna hook up to the outer set of tail lights but it seems to be ALOT of work to it .. cos u have to take off those trims and stuff ...
and those trims r hard to take off :(

so thats y i only got the guy to wire up with the break light in the middle of the trunk (see the pic in the first post of this thread)
