This. Although the entire set and harness for $400 isn't bad.

I have OEM euro tails. ECS sold me just the outer two for around $400 shipped. It's a no-brainer if you're already an LCI car. Matching amber turn signals really helps with your OCD.

AGREE! This is why I had to have the Euro spec.


UPDATE: The lights have been working flawlessly for about 5 months. Rain, pressure wash, soap, outside overnight, no issues.

Yes, taillights will need to be coded in order to prevent bulb errors. We can do this for you and are open tomorrow if you'd like to drop by.

Can you tell or take pics and show where did you install resistors which are spliced with the wiring?

If you are talking about the black box thing, I placed that up against the inside of the larger tail light assembly and taped it in place. Not the most elegant solution, but relatively easy. The remaining wiring was tied to the main harness.
-if you still need additional support, feel free to PM me-

Yes, I had an Auto Logic shop code the retrofit tail light option on my car and removed bulb check. No flickering or errors.

I no longer have the car, but they were perfect. I miss them, lol. My Cayman has ugly tail lights.

If you are on the fence just DO IT.

thanks for the advice. One last question: Will my current bulbs fit, or will I have to get new bulbs? thanks.

Current fit. The only bulb you swap is the RR fog.
