I have a few sets coming in, but they are already sold. Do you think they would sell big over here? I can probably bring more in and post them on my website if the demand is there.

I'm not a huge fan of the white element. If it could be red maybe it'd look better. Seems like the white would clash somewhat with my SRM harshly. Other than that they seem pretty nice. The price kinda crosses a psychological barrier for me by about $70.

I'm sure a decent amount of people would be interested for sure (I'd insta-buy a set!). The only real aftermarket options are the spyder ones, and personally I don't dig them, plus literally EVERYONE has them. The instagram guy mentioned above is the only car I've seen with them.

I'd buy a set. One of mine is cracked from too hot of an LED bulb I installed. 😕

I have 40 sets coming in, but I think they will sell out fast since the guys on Facebook are very interested. Google Commodore Specialties to get to my website and be sure to sign up as an email blast will go out once they are in stock.

I don't use Facebook. I created an account on your website. Will I get an email when they are available?
Thanks

Maverick Man's seem different than what's popping up online.

Maverick Man's have the side marker (US requirement), the others don't.

Also, where the others have chromed out areas for the lights, Maverick Man's are black.

The sequential LEDs and reverse LEDs appear to be the same.

I prefer Maverick Man's lights. If only I could get them with a red "C" as opposed to a white one. Though I could live with the "C" being white if seen on the vehicle with the blacked out reflectors.

Blacked out:



Chromed (no side marker):



Reverse lights (notice the red side marker):



Chrome with white "C": http://cgi.ebay.com.au/153379215999

Chrome with red "C": http://cgi.ebay.com.au/153353107869

Blacked out with white "C": https://www.maverickmancarbon.com/co...17492753121378

getting closer to what i would want.... still not there though. for me to pull the trigger i would either need a MM style black housing with the red C, or would need a smoked red lens option on a chrome or black housing like the spyder ones are
