This thing is bright! – Waterproof 3W 60-LED 3W Flexible Light Strip - White Light (1-Meter/DC 12V) Reviews

Pros:
I used this light strip on our outside stairs, with it's uneven steps. I was surprised how bright it was! It lit up the steps very bright, and the light was even visible 10 feet away on other structures (despite the city lights). Light is blueish-white. The sticky strip is holding itself up so far, though I doubt that would be enough on a car.
Cons:
The power usage, including the overhead of our 120V to 12V transformer, is 7 watts. It uses a little more power than I wanted. I wish it was longer and the lights more spread out, so it could cover more distance.
Other:
I doubt you will be disappointed with the brightness, and if you are, just add another strip. It hasn't rained here yet, so I don't know how it fares with the rain (it should have no problem, it's surrounded by a thick clear plastic shield).
Bottomline:
If you want a bright strip of light for outdoor use, get this! Way brighter than two 4W incandescent lights that are usually sold for patio lights.
