Tail lights...

Hey guys I know the 98-00 tails are different from the 00-01 tails. But it seems to be purely asthetic, will 00-01 tails fit a 98-00 or visa versa? I found these AWESOME 4D tails on eBay and I want them so bad, but I have a 98 and it says for 00-01 only.

the corners will fit, but the trunk light won't. where the trunk lights curve down toward the license plate is different on both cars. do a trunk swap and you got what you are looking for.

the bolt holes for the trunk mounted light on the 01-02's are different, thats the only thing ive ever heard of why they wont fit on 98-00's.

and btw, they do make those tails for a 98-00, just search around some more, im sure ebay will get them.

post some pics when you get them, i'm curious as to how they will look. the ebay auction says 98 to 00, but from the pic that they show, the trunk tails still look like they only fit the 01 to 02 sedan.

that's cool. the position of the lights doesn't matter much. if you look at a 98 to 00 vs. a 01 to 02, the contour of the lights is different on the trunk next to the license plate. pretty much the lights won't line up with the trunk. i can't wait to see them, cause i've been checking them out too. i was thinking about doing an led conversion, but if these work and look good, for get about the conversion.

yeah i was looking for led stop lights like they use on trucks to make conversion but then i accidentaly found those and im like screw conversion this would look much better. i would have to check out difference couse i never noticed that before

yeah i checked 98-00 lights and trunk part little smoother then in 01-02 so yeah i guess they would not fit. i think they just post pic for both models couse they look same but will send you for right year if you order it. ill post pics when i get it

Let us know how the output on the LEDs are on these bad boys. I've been waiting for someone to try them. I think this will make you the first here on V6P to have these tails...unless someone is holding out on me.

Wow, I registered on these forums just in time. I saw the pics in the gallery, and they're awesome. They're cheaper than the altezzas when they first came out too. Are the reverse/signal lights LEDs as well?
