    ^ what he said. Do you have picture with trunk closed? I was curious about this mod. What I would really like is a full led headlight and better DRL. :-(

    Good job everyone. Yes 18 tail. It looks incredibley nice. It is also brighter because of the angled position. The car rear looks much more modern. I still need to find a used for the passenger side. eBay is full of them but all of them are chipped.

    Also, the right corner of theb18 tails have magnet instead of a clip. It just snaps on the metal of the car. Plus under the tails have foam pieces so it will prevent it from scratching the bumper.

    Paid $280 shipped in new condition. Really one of my favorite mods I have done.

    Here is a picture of it at night. You can clearly see it is much brighter. IMG_20180614_230217-1280x960.jpg

    Haha. If there was one thing the car absolutely didn't need.


    I'm on board with this mod. I really like the new tails. I hope they pop up for fairly cheap.

    I wonder why so many of them are chipped?

    Accident cars.

    You will definitely love it. It looks so nice. Just comparing it with the original.

    I wanted to buy the euro version at first but I thought about it and didn't want to spent $2200.

    Cheapest I found is $700 new online but that is still too much.

    Maybe I am missing something. ~$5-600 used just for taillights? That's a lot. :eyebulge: Is the only difference the shape/apparent brightness? Both original and these are LEDs, right? Thx :thumbsup:

    Brighter?? Holy shit I thought the 15-17 tail lights were blinding and so many others have commented on their brightness. So the 18s are brighter than that?

    OEM parts are expensive specially headlights and tails. They are led and plug and play. Fitment is better than the original 15-17.

    They are brighter because of the viewing angle unlike the 15-17 that the angle is mostly towards the outside.

    Yes because of the viewing angle.

    That’s really cool! Was it plug n play? Any additional parts/mods to rear bumper required? Also, are you going to leave it like that until you get the right side, or switch it back until you get the full set?

    Plug and play. You just have to remove the top cover and transfer it to the 18 light.

    Yes I will drive it that way.

    Just wanted to add, if the tail light don't come with harness you need to purchase them separate. They are $30 each at the dealer.
