Looks sweet! Shoot them an email and see if you can import them! The 9-3 headlights looked awesome too.

If the LEDs are dead even across all the rows, then they could probably look alright on the right car. The problem with most aftermarket lights like that is inevitably, a few are an 1/8th or so off, and it makes them look pretty hokey.

The guy on SC wanted $1000 to do the work and the original tails sent back within 3 days of receipt. It spawned a discussion on having DIY attempts, but no one has posted anything since.

I'd do this just to have two damn reverse lights.
The lack of symmetry is fucking annoying.

I'm all set with spending money on something foolish like that. Headlights, OK, I gotta see where I'm going, but taillights? Really? As long as mine work and no one is going to smash into the back of me, great!

Not saying it doesn't look kinda cool, but at what price ya know? The going crazy and spending $$$ on lighting thing was never really my cup of tea.

It's one thing if someone was doing this for, say, $400. That would be more in line with a reasonable price. But $1,000?

I want some pictures of tall Russian women next to the cars to determine if I like the tails or not.

Both. But the tails do look good, it updates the look of the car IMO.
