Thanks in advance.
the new design has the brake lights constantly lit up. when you apply the brakes the lights turn off.

just kidding.

these are just the new taillights that come with 2012+ models. jzhang retrofitted them to his car.

the red light strips are changed, the new ones are more apparent.

I basically too my pre-LCI lights and swapped them with the newer LCI lights. easy.

Look at it this way. There was no way for anyone in the US to get it before me. The LCI was released in europe first so of course.

haha, i wouldn't be afraid to, but I like the originals (now that they got the leaking to stop....)

If i didn't like the way the stock ones looked, i'd have the LCIs on order by now.

Maybe if the LCI grows on me a bit, i might attempt, but for now i'm pretty happy with the look.
