In addition to having LED rear brake lights, we wish for every mini to have a highly visible third brake light. The public roads of today are filled with heavy vehicles that won't always be able to stop as fast as a mini. The Apollo third brake light can protect you by clearly showing other drivers that you are slowing down.
Our third brake light features a reversible shroud, so you can run the slant upwards or downwards for a different aesthetic.
The install is tool-less. Just position the light close to the windscreen and centered on the parcel tray, run the wire down the right side cavity into the boot, tap into your brake light 12V source, and attach the ground to the tail lamp mounting screw. Tuck loose wire under the edge of the rear seat to hide it away and you are done!
We always choose to run LED brake lights over halogen bulbs because they are much brighter than incandescent bulbs, have lower draw, and are instant-on.
1) Every third brake light kit comes with double-sided tape
2) Optional: carefully mark locations of bolt holes, then drill through the parcel shelf with a 1/4" drill bit. Slide in 1/4-20 bolts facing down and tighten nuts from the boot (hardware not included). This is the most permanent solution.
Comes pre-wired and pre-terminated to run as a third brake light
Includes Posi-tap connector for tool-less and secure tap connection
Carbon HTPLA base and reversible shroud
Fits all years of classic Mini with negative earth.
***Note that LED lights are designed for negative earth cars only***
