+100000000000000000000000 Welcome to NY.... if you see Canadian Plates leave radius around said vehicle of at least 100 yards. Even if it means crossing over the median on a busy highway. Trust me your chances are better with traffic coming in the opposite direction than with that guy

thanks

the tails are the cheapo ebay clear "euro" jobs and they don't do any justice. i just need someone to sell me a set of sedan tails WITH the bulb sockets. I can buy the tails on ebay but they never include bulb sockets.

I actually kinda like em. I'll be on the lookout for sedan tails though when I hit the local yard though.
In other news this is Zymol Carbon after 4 1/2 months. Can't say it doesn't last! Problem is the car never seems to dry with it. If I put in the garage wet, it will be exactly the same level of wet 9 hours later. Weird.

If Derek has the sockets, I can find the tails. Prices for them are at LKQ.com, they don't differentiate between car types so if it says a tail light is $14 then it is, whether it's from a Yugo or a Ferrari. But probably be about $20 guesstimate.

My Euro tails from DDM are easily just as good of quality as OEM. I compared them to my OEM tails in every respect, and they truly are just as good.
