    I have one that I never put on my R50, maybe I should have an auction.

    I am assuming LNS is done. I was putting off an alternative, I really want the stick on lens....

    Another alternative to a light in sight is don't stop right on the white line. Leave a few feet of space and you will be able to see the light for free.

    Also if an accident happens at the intersection you won't be right on top of it and possible be hit.

    I had mixed results with the alternative I had suggested. It worked great as long as the suction cup stayed on, but, all too many times it would pop off whenever I hit a bump and then I'd have to scramble to find it before my next light. In the end, I took it off all together and it now resides on my workbench.

    I was VERY fortunate to receive the LightInSight that Rigidjunkie had, and, like JMC40 suggested, consider it "worth its weight in gold". It's probably worth even more than that now that it appears that the company is no longer manufacturing them, despite all the claims to the contrary.

    For me it was something I did not like. Passed it on to a friend & now it lives happily in an 09 JCW.

    :cornut: Again, when facing a setting or rising sun, use the sun visor.:lol::lol:

    That's my exact plan! Except my NOT N MG has no visors. My plan, pull your hat down. :D

    I guess the sun doesn't rise or set as low on the horizon in TX as it does in OH, and a big, adjustable visor is what is worth its weight in gold. Besides, the MINI visors REALLY suck....:devil:

    :cornut: Actually, in Texas we know how to raise and lower the seat to accommodate the sun visors while dealing with Gods University of Texas Burnt Orange sunset.:Thumbsup:

    :cornut: If you believe that then you haven't been following the posts of my night escapades. Ask Crashton and Metalman.:Thumbsup:

    Hell, if I spent THAT much time raising and lowering my seat to accommodate those worthless sun visors, I'd NEVER leave my driveway! Life is too short!:devil:

    Move fast...I doubt that Way's initial stock is going to last very long.

    This thing is a "must have" for the MINI.
