LED Tailights

Will OEM taillights from a coupe fit a vert or vice versa?

No. In the future you should use the search function, or even just Google it.

Convertible's require their own special tail lights, different from the coupe and sedan.

I've been searching, but am curious to actually see pictures of the difference between coup and vert tail lights. (I don't get out to shows often.)

Looking at both lights fitted to both cars there isn't much to see but if you fit coupes to a vert then it all becomes clear, the coupe lights will look as if their not fitted correctly, I'm not sure if they stick out or sit back further in the recess, but whatever it is they look wrong
It's a Ragtop thing! you wouldn't understand

Shape and mounting depth are slightly different convertible vs the coupe. It's very difficult to tell in the photos we have (as they are all different angles)
