    LED taillight swap

    Okay so I posted this on another thread but thought I would start a new one to post pictures and a video. I installed these on a Saturday, took me about 6 hours start to finish but now that i know what to do it's probably a 2-3 hour job.

    The install does require splicing into the factory harness (it is reversible) and you will have to cut a few of the harness that come with the lights to reroute the wires. However, I do have a couple pictures detailing what each wire controls so as long as you know the function of the original plugs (which is pretty easy bc they're all 2 wire except the brake/turn) routing the wires to the correct OEM wire is really easy.

    The video does not capture the true colors. They are a very vibrant red and the turn signals are orange. I took this on my phone so the color rendering isn't great. Anyways, I love them - definitely worth The $400 and time to install. Enjoy!

    Those look great. I like the sequential, Audi style turn signal too, nice little touch.

    I spent about the same on my LED Spyder tails for my 2014. As you said, so worth it. A very nice upgrade from the bland, stock tails. Safer as well with the increased brightness.

    I was looking at these a couple days ago. If you are near me can I like pay you for labor to install these? Was seriously considering it.
