those taillights work for both. they're completely interchangeable as long as you change the inner trunk light pieces too.

judging strictly from the pics provided by the seller, they should come with their own trunk light backing piece thingies. if you're gonna buy these though, i'd ask the seller first to make sure they're either compatible with the oem trunk lights or if come with their own...
