I like mine, they fit ok and no leaks. I had to fiddle with them a bit to get them to fit but nothing major.

I don't have anything against ebay led tails... but the tails posted with the hybrid led+incandescent bulb... are ugly. You can get some oem-like led tails on ebay for cheap that look a helluva lot better.

It doesn't matter, the wiring harness connects to the back of the tail lights in the same way. You don't connect the bulbs independently...it's the same harness.



I also have the ebay smoked tails, but I believe the OP is asking about the ebay LED smoked tails, which are completely different. I'm happy with mine, but if I had to buy them all over again, i'd definitely get the led's instead.

you should have just went with the vinyl tint from ebay. It would have saved you money and make your car look better

I agree...it'll be a much easier install and much easier to un-install. It will also give you virtually the same look, plus the added option of customizing the darkness level. Sometimes I feel that my tails aren't dark enough (since the car/windows are black...tails are a dark grey)
