If you want it to look like a runway/movie theater then go with LEDs. If you want it to be solid and fluid, neons the way.

If you're just looking for light under the dash and under the seats, probably better with small neons.

I have LED's,neons are oldschool.There are advantages LED's have over neon,and conventional lighting.
1.They will last forever.
2.they will light up instantly,unlike neons and conventional bulbs where u have 2 wait for the filament 2 heat up and glow.
3.They take up alot less room,and can produce the same amount of light if not more.
4.They use less electric
5.they don't produce the heat that neons and bulbs do.
Hope this helps

Sad to say, its ileagal to have them in Virginia, so if you get caught with them on in your car or outside of your car whether it be LED or neon lights, you will get ticketed. Same for windows being too tinted or your car being too loud... Virginia has some stupid laws but anyway.

Well same here in Virginia, you can have them, but don't get caught with them on while driving. Actually, I dont even think you are even suppose to have them outside your car no how out here, whether it be on the bottom of your car, or on your lisence plate.

You can have them on the outside as long as they are not lit while driving.I actually was going to get under body led's and hook them to my alarm.Thought that would be cool,and attract attention to my ride if someone tried to break in.

In most states it isnt illegal to have them, but is to have them lit while on public roads... I dunno about virginia... I live in Michigan, which is also rather strict...
