Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

Simple but VERY satisfying
For something so simple, this product is very rewarding. I own a 2016 Mustang (V6), so allow me to provide more details, as there are some nuances worth mentioning:
1. Hazard Lights: As advertised, both taillights will light up in sequence, similar to the turn signals (but simultaneously, obviously).
2. Break Lights: As advertised, the lights will move within sequence, then remain solid for as long as you are stepping on the break.
3. [Un]locking The Car: (my favorite feature) the car will sequence as you approach your car and press the unlock button; sometimes, making you feel like a secret-agent -- experiences may vary.
**4. Locking The Car: This was the only exception. I am not sure if this element of my item was defected, but it only sequences with two (of the three) lights -- the inner most light and middle light will move in sequence once, but the the outermost light will not do anything. When I thought about it, though, It actually made sense, because the sound of the horn (when locking the car) is very brief, and the lights function in sync (no pun intended) with the sound of the horn. As the two lights sequence, the sound of the horn is already complete, making a third light unnecessary. So honestly, I don't mind this difference (well, at least this is how I've rationalized it). Also, this distinct 2-light sequence makes it easy to visually differentiate that I am locking my car as opposed to unlocking it (assuming the horn wasn't enough).
Installation: Installation is very easy, HOWEVER, I am the type to get very unlucky. While 3 of the 4 fasteners came off with a simple counter-clockwise twist, 1 of them would not budge. If you find yourself in a similar predicament, grab something soft (e.g., shirt or cloth) and place it in one-of-the-three wedges of the fastener. From there, grab a flathead screwdriver and apply constant, but gentle pressure until it slowly gives. Once it finally loosens, you'll be able to twist it right off.
All in all, I heavily recommend this product! I wish it was less than $80, but hey, we can't have everything!
