9 Cheap and Not-So-Cheap Ways to Add Neon to Your Car

For those of you without access to a Lizard Green 911 or a Lamborghini Aventador, it is much tougher to order bright neon paints and interior colors on a new car than you might imagine. We’ve assembled six tacky add-ons that lots of people apparently buy in order to look cool at the neighborhood black-light party, two options that may cost a college education, plus one more that’s essential for your safety on the road.

This is a great idea. Always keep a reflective safety vest in your trunk in case of a breakdown, so you’re more visible to passing cars.

This is not a great idea, but lots of people love it. Bear in mind that in most states, accessory lights like these are illegal when driving. When parked at night, your car will be a tailgating monster.

By far the best option here, the BMW Z8 was a retro roadster with the V-8 powertrain from the M5 sedan, on which all the turn signals and brake lights are neon. As a bonus to watching these unique lights (no automaker since has used neon), you’ll enjoy a beautiful BMW that sounds fantastic and will not depreciate. BMW imported just 2543 cars into the U.S. from 2000 to 2003.
