FS : Used Coupe LED Tail Lights & Facelifted Coupe Trunk Lights

A few months ago, my aftermarket LEDs gave me a little headache and I decided I would simply replace them. Unfortunately, the site I ordered them from came prepackaged with the updated trunk lights (which I already had).

So, I installed the new LED tails yesterday and have my old LED tails along with the brand new unopened facelifted trunk lights ready to sell (either seperately or together).

The only issue with the LEDs is that the one of the two isn't quite as bright when braking. When the lights are on, they look totally normal but, when you push the brake, one side is a little dimmer... I assume anyone with electronic knowledge of one form or another could likely fix this with a few minutes.. I just don't know what to look for or how to fix them.

In case anyone is unfamilliar with the updated coupe trunk lights, they look like this



Taking reasonable offers

I wanted to make the "issue" known of course for the thread but, I would assume the new owner wouldn't even notice. There is no "light out" warning or anything along those lines. I just had a two or three friends who drove behind me over the last few months say "hey your tail light is acting up"

OK, i have an offer for the tails at 50 shipped. Will take that if I don't get another offer by EOD. Other than the one dimming thing I mentioned above, these are perfect plug and play LED tails. 75 shipped?

What side is having issues? My driver side EE LED light stops working when it's cold out. The blinker will work but the red won't light up at all until the ballast heats up. It's strange I still need to troubleshoot it...

mine isn't anything close to that severe. Everything works fine it's just that, when you hit the brakes, one side doesn't illuminate as much as the other. I believe it is the driver's side that has the problem

Yeah! At this point I think I'm just gonna buy a new set! They've gotten a lot cheaper. Plus I'd like to tint the new set and keep the old set to swap for tickets since they do work still... Sort of!

Well, a promise is a promise. If I can't find a buyer, gvsu3er is getting these DIRT CHEAP. I'll likely pay more in shipping than he will pay for the units
