Here are my reverse lights from an RS taillight replica.

Those are the bulbs and seller I got them from. I think the RS taillights' optics aren't very good as I got more light out of the regular Yaris taillights.





Yes I saw your pictures with the osram bulbs, before. They are good looking.
But if I change these with leds I might change all the bulbs to leds, to look similar. But thatís an expensive project for another day.
I am already working on a bang & olufsen soundsystem on my yaris right now and I am waiting for the parts to arrive (more to come for this. I will make an entire topic for it when the time comes) and that was already expensive. So I will keep a distance from other costly upgrades for now

Reverse, I got them from a seller locally. Look like normal generic stuff found on eBay, and they are nice and bright. Almost as bright as my friend using HID lol.

I have yet to replace any LED I installed, though I haven't found any good 7442 bulbs for the brake light at an affordable price, so halogens are still in there including the flashers.

I guess you got the hits instead of the misses. Lol.

For the brake lights, I would not get cheap ones since you really don't want those to fail or be dim.

B&O speakers can be found in scrap yards lol
Many Audi have it and you could easily pull them.

Here in Greece we do not have scrapyards like in USA that you can go and pull things. So I had to buy them from sellers.
But you are right they are from Audi ;)

They are not that expensive, because they are used. But they are not cheap either. I paid about 120$ for a pair. Make that double for 2 pairs.

They came from an Audi RS5

Here is a little teaser. They just arrived in my home

You know what, I never thought about getting speakers from a scrap yard.

Ouch, more expensive than the Infinity speakers I got. However, they probably sound better. haha. My friend has them in his A4, and they sound clear and good.

Are you powering them with an external amp? That's one reason why I didn't get more expensive speakers since I didn't want to run one.

Not yet but in the feature I will.
Yes they are good for sure. But keep in mind that the whole system has like 12 speakers that are different from each other. So itís hard to replicate the sound from a car that has the whole system installed, with just 4 speakers of one kind ;)

There are many varieties of paper cone speakers.
The do not have foam. They have rubber.
The foam you see outside is for vibration cancellation purposes.
Even bose systems on cars are paper cone. But somehow they sound awesome.
So for me it isnít a dealbreaker at all.

I think high end companies use (treated) paper cones because they can produce better all around sounds (especially lower frequencies) than poly cones. Cheap (untreated) paper cones are used because, well, they cost less and are usually paired with cheaper surround material. lol.

Yep. Thats right.
For instance if you compare the paper from b&o speakers to those that our car had from the factory the difference is day night.
And the bass that a paper cone speaker can produce is way way better than poly-vinyl cones.

Yeah, there are more to speakers than just the cone that affects the way it sounds.
