Light your Stick! Dipstick & Engine Bay LED Light
 
When I bought my 2004 RX8 it was missing something important in the Engine Bay; a Light to see the Dipstick when I check the oil level (VERY FREQUENTLY!)
After a year of developing the LED light I have installed in my RX8 and want you to have an opportunity to have one too!

Fuse protected for ultimate in Safety

Temperature tested, extremely Durable

Up to 45 Lumens of Bright light where you need it, when you need it

Lights up Oil Filter area during oil changes

STEALTH (GREAT for show cars)

Easy to install takes only 15-20 minutes

Water Resistant Coating

Included in the kit are instructions, an alcohol pad for cleaning area, and LED Dipstick Light with Switch.
The only tool needed is a Philips screwdriver, lights mount with self adhesive tape and work with years 2004 thru 2008
Send me an Email for custom applications as these can be modified for other vehicles, years, and locations too. It appears Mazda has completely relocated the oil filter and dipstick for 2009 + models, I am working on a light for 2009 + as we speak, that should have similar installation.

Hmm very tempting... How long do the LEDs last?

Lebren 04-04-2009 07:37 PM

It is Extremely rare for these LED's to fail, they actually get a little brighter after 1000 hours. My feeling is they will last as long as your car is on the road or track!

myriadshalaks 04-04-2009 08:09 PM

i think i'm in. it sounds cool. any pics of them on when installed? and i can't really get a sense of how it sits in there. does it look clean? how's the tape hold up in there? kinda hot area.

Lebren 04-04-2009 09:32 PM

Ok, from first to last, within the next day or so there will be more installed pics up so please keep checking. The initial prototypes had black and red wire, it was not as clean so my beta testers guided me to chose a more neutral color for the wires (thanks guys you know who you are :) ) The light sits under the AC Bracket, it is VERY stealth, you can't even tell it's there! The tape is good for one time, maybe two if installing carefully. The alcohol will clean any debris and dust for a good contact of the tape. Finally, the heat is not so bad, I have years of experience testing LED's in critical conditions and am confident in the longevity of this light. Thank You for your interest and keep checking back for more pics!

myriadshalaks 04-04-2009 09:37 PM

where is the button?

Lebren 04-04-2009 10:29 PM

In the first picture, the on/off switch is located on the right. It is rectangular and black. I'm working on getting more pics up.

\\Konig\\ 04-04-2009 10:31 PM

glad to see these finally coming out!

lebren has installed this light on my rx8 and i can vouch for him being a great guy and offering a great product =] no more anger from trying to stick the dipstick into that tiny little hole at night! the light is VERY bright and is in the perfect spot imo.

i will have pics of my install shortly and ill post them up here!

oh and quick question, where it says "38 for the first and 34 for additional lights", what exactly do you mean by additional lights?

gregs 04-04-2009 10:34 PM

i have a dip stick light kit from lebren, he personally installed mine and from start to finish was soo easy and user friendly...also im very happy with the quality being this is very stealth yet produces plenty of light...ill post pics soon

thanks again lebren i am very happy with your product!

(i can vouch for a good quality product and knowledge from lebren)

probably if you have other cars you want to throw it in, then 34 for additional

this sounds like a personal problem. :rofl:

GaMEChld 04-05-2009 02:23 PM

Woot for myLite app on my phone!

Lebren 04-05-2009 04:45 PM

Yes, additional units for second car, there are some out there with track and street cars. Lights can be ordered with longer cables for other parts of engine bay!
Longer cables are custom order, please contact me for a light with these installed.

Great news, I got some more pics!

hmm hahaha, these lights have all sorts of uses!

ill get plenty of pics tonight for sure and a couple daytime ones too!

\\Konig\\ 04-05-2009 09:15 PM

here are some daytime pics!

dont mind the dirtyness of my car, the pollen during this time of the year is unstoppable =[

couple of notes: the button for my dipstick light is a little visible, however, you can completely hide it if you just scoot it under the metal bracket a tiny bit more than i did. it doesnt bother me at all though, no one would EVER notice it unless i pointed it out. and also since mine was an early prototype, minor things were a bit different, such as the color of the wire (my wire is red, new one is grey).

ill get some night time pics later today when it gets darker!

alright here we go, night time shots in absolute darkness to test out the light in the worst conditions possible!

i checked the oil as well to verify that it lit up the hole properly and SUCCESS! i had no problems checking the oil and putting the dipstick back in the hole =]

here are the pics:

This is really cool! I just wish it was a little cheaper... more around the $20-$25 range.

myriadshalaks 04-06-2009 12:48 PM

if we got enough people, could we do 25?

Kafka 04-06-2009 03:12 PM

The Konig's pics are really good....should use it for the sales department man!

Good luck! :)

savedsol 04-06-2009 03:44 PM

You could buy a 3watt LED flashlight for $25 and be able to illuminate lots of things! Not to crap on your product but an expensive solution.
