    I just exchanged my 2018 Mustang US model tail lights for a pair of matching EU Mustang tail lights. The fit, function, and performance are exactly as advertised in every detail. All I had to do was disconnect my US pair and install the EU pair. No connector modifications or any other changes. Just plug them in. All of 20 minutes. Pawel Wiecek from Poland at HD-Customs provided the service and a completely hassle free exchange that was very quick and simple. Please see the attached results 5FBBC659-B93D-4F05-AF4F-30CBC7E8AEAA.jpeg 7C43C034-A20D-41E7-9249-B224A735C833.jpeg F3E7B55C-56E3-4077-86C8-B1F3E124999A.jpeg DA795262-D5F1-4AB2-A1E1-0D44DBB1E490.jpeg

    I don't get it . I want the US light so bad because on EU the tri-bars don't work and taillights had sequential turn signals.

    Are those tail lights red when illuminated? I would assume so to be legal here.

    If you do like/want the EU lights, contact Pawel. My out of packet was $550 with the exchange and the shipment of my lights. Just installed them, but love the look. And functions to the US legal specs with the sequential 3 bar. If I can figure out how to attach an iPhone mov vid, I will.

    They are red just like us. All three. With a turn signal on, they are sequential in red. No amber. Now in vids they do look a little amberish, but in person they are definitely red and bright. Even a little pinkish red. I’ve seam Toyota Tacoma trucks with a similar color look.

    Looking good Joe. In Aus. the outside tail light bar is amber while the inside pair are red. All very true to their colour when illuminated, but no sequentials here. IMG_20180822_093601.jpg

    Looks very nice! You don’t see the white strip on orange that often.

    For the front, a few little things. Blacked out the front area under the lights. Color match a little on the wheels. But in 2 weeks, a Whipple SC

    Thanks. I actually went with a ivory/ cream colour and got a matching auto shifter from White Madness Garage.
