Hey, guys, I know I probably will get a lot of ****e for this post but I can't help but acknowledge that they do look good and you have to agree that the quality of eBay lights have gotten much better since the beginning of times. So my question is if they look tacky or classy? Or if it this ones but OEM replicas for LCI. It's just so much cheaper than getting the Bruce cables and OEM lights or Lm2 coded and lights. If anybody has any experience please chime in. My car is the same color as in this listing FYI :)

I'd wait. I was able to find a pair of used LCI tails with converters for $450 + shipping. They work fairly well, idrive complains about a bulb being out on the right tail even though I have checked multiple times and they are all fine.

That's one of the reasons too I don't want to deal with converters-warning lights :p

Or you can keep your existing nearly-identical lights, put in new bulbs all around, and save the money for something better. No warning lights, either.

I don't know about the technical compatibility of switching to these lights, but IMO (based just on the ebay pics) they look nice. Do these still incorporate the adaptive brake light feature?
