By the way, this is one reason I always use my parking brake light when I park on the street or even supermarket parking lots. Although I doubt I would have done this if I were merely parking in front of my own house!

At any rate LED tailights available on Ebay for the 986 are 10X's brighter during the day. I parked on the street a few weeks back and they were by far the brightest thing in my field of vision some two blocks away. I could see people reacting to the light by moving closer to the dividing line in the road.

For some reason people just notice a low sitting car a lot less. Silver also seems blends into the background a bit more.

BTW thstone, sorry for your loss.
That's a idea if he had the time. I just removed my oe 102K rear suspension, Thstone I'll give you my worn but totally safe parts to swap out if you need to go that route.

Seeing that image and owning a silver 01 S, this hits a liiiiiiittle too close to home for me

Damn Man. Sorry. (shaking head). Here's hoping to a happy ending to this story (what ever that may turn out to be). Please let us know what you do.

Thanks for the offer! I'm still waiting to hear from the other insurance company but will keep this option in mind.
