Exclamation 3rd Brake light. (Opinions needed.)

So... It's pretty deformed and beaten by the sun.. I thought I might be able to just wet sand it and clean it up, but it has actually kind of shrunk and bent upwards a little bit on the corners and doesn't fit flush anymore.

My question is, does anyone have the black LED brake light from AM? I kind of like it, especially the fact that it would be brighter than stock, but I definitely don't want it to look rice.. Most of the user pictures look pretty decent on AM, so what do you think?

Yeah the sun turns our 3rd lights to **** lol. Mines a bit warped as well. I have considered this led light too, just haven't broke down and gotten it yet. lol.

Switch has this led light and it looks good. Without the brake applied it just looks like a stock tinted light. I would get it, I don't really consider that rice at all.

I like the AM black LED brake light. I don't think it looks ricey at all. Some of those pictures of those Mustangs sporting them is a different story, though.

Well, I went ahead and got one.. Bought it on fleabay though, 'cause they had the exact same one for about $35.00 less..

If you watch the install video on AM, it's the same thing..

Haha, yeah I do. It looks great in my opinion. It looks like a regular light completely blacked out, but there's actually nothing covering the led's so it's bright as hell when you hit the brakes.
