    I've often wondered if reverse lights are intended to help you see, or just to alert anyone looking that your car is backing up. Some (like the Model S) seem no better than simple indicators for anyone who may be behind the car. I assume you're looking for additional light to see with?

    I'm looking into that as well right now. I might just hook up a brighter set of LEDs into the rear lights. Every time I back up through my drive way at night I feel like I can hardly see anything. When I go backwards I need to see. IMHO the reverse light is more than just letting the person behind you know you are in reverse, it's also about lighting up the road.
