Euro Red/clear Led Tail Light

so i bought a pair of these and installed them- any one that has done the same notice more of a "gap" around the lights instead of fitting snuggly in place like the stock ones?

Link to lights i bought-

those look really nice.
they give the 10yr old designed car a bit more modern look.
i really like the LEDs, i was thinking of getting those too, but now you got me worried man hehe.

but can you post some pics of the mentioned gap so we can see what you are talking about? maybe contact the seller and tell him/her whats happeneing and maybe you can work something out to get a new let of lenses..

I posted my pics, but i guess no one looked. My car is the same color as yours, and I put them in 2 weeks ago. I love them, but did notice about an 1/8 to 1/16 inch gap. It still looks good to me and at night,....what a difference!!!!! I love them, and they update my '99 to look like beyond new.

When you install those, there is a little room for play... so don't just put them
in place and tighten them down. You may have to hold it in place, slightly
elevated (so it's not resting on the bumper), and THEN tighten the nuts in back.

i did that and theres still gapping around it regardless as long as the gasket holds water out of my trunk then itll be fine i guess...

Are both lights like that or just the right one?
