Euro tailights?

Hey guys,

I tried searching the forum for this, but the only posts that are relavant seem to be like 5+ years old.

Basically, I was wondering if anyone had a ball park as to how much a set of euro tail lights would cost. The funny thing is that I don't really want them for the look as much as I do for the safety. I like the idea of a dedicated amber signal, and just the other day when I had my hazards on (along with the tail lights on) they just didn't seem all that noticable from behind...

Thanks for the help.

Yeah thats about how old some of the posts are, I did mine about 10 years ago.
I like them for safety as well.
I would say brand new around $125 each, I can get you a used set for around $125 for the set in near perfect condition.

BUT, there is more to it. You need to wire them properly to work.

You need to run 2 wires from the rear lamps control box under dash to rear lamps and run resistors so the dummy lights don't come on. Pretty easy actually and works nice. Nice to have sep. brake, parking and turn signal in orange.

Hey Jason thanks for the reply. 125 for a used pair of euros seems very fair. Once I get more free time to work on my car, I'll get in touch with you.

Thanks again,
Rimouski

I know this is a bit of an old thread, but does anyone have the wiring diagram for Euro tail lights?

thanks
