Side-marker compatibility question

I want to replace my side-markers (face lifted sedan) for the face lifted coupe's anyone know or has done this in the past? is the opening the same size? The ones on the coupe look bigger but i figured the opening area might be the same dimensions?? Can someone confirm this or if someone has a face lifted coupe can you please photograph the back of the light as well as the opening on the fender?

Thanks in advance

FACE LIFTED SEDAN:



FACE LIFTED COUPE:


Now looking at them all it looks like if they just simply inverted them, so the narrow side is pointing towards the back on the coupes (vise versa for sedans), hmm i guess i can try it out before i commit to buying a new set of coupe lights. I don't know the coupe's still looks like a little wing and the sedan's look like a thin slot.

Not only that but they are shaped and mounted differently. With that said, if you want LEDs for your stock sidemarkers, you can just get a set of our Sidemarker LED bulbs. They are completely white when off and blink in your choice of amber or xenon white
