I've chatted online with the guy making those some time ago. Looks like he's got it well sorted now in a nice user friendly package.
While it does look very pretty any of the kits that sit under the boot lid including the ones I'm doing are only clearly visible in low light conditions. In these circumstances I don't really see that an extra brake light is needed. Plus anything brake light related that isn't a solid light can cause MOT problems as has been found by Jeff.
Looking at the demonstration vidoes I'd be very wary of any sequences that had any element of blue. At this time of year it's bad enough having flashing blue Christams lights in front gardens. Showing anything other than a red light to the rear is probably asking for trouble.
I'll stick with the kits that I'm making anyway. Getting plenty of sales and everyone loves them so I'm happy with that.
Looks interesting. As there is no clear coating on it the + & - 12v pads will be live and open to the elements. Might be an idea to coat them with some clear nail varnish just for a bit of protection. The double sided tape on these strips isn't usually up to much. I have the 3M tape that I use custom cut to 8mm width to suit the tape. I've got plenty if you need some.

OK, will wire up temporarily to try "existing+ new" as "side-brake" and as "replacement side" and will do photos.
I'm up in Hexham over Christmas so it may be mid Christmas-new year before I get a chance to try anything. We're away from new year for a holiday but I'll get this done ASAP.
The lead I've received does have a sealed sleeve over the solder but I was going to hot-glue over it as well. For the test, I'll use existing sticky.
BTW, it's very bright, so I think it may be too bright for side light use. As you may remember, my car is blue and I had to add some 3M red reflective tape as the paint absorbed much of the red LED light.
