has anyone bought those? (LEDtaillights)?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/96-04-PORSCHE-BOXSTER-RED-SMOKE-LED-TAIL-LIGHTS-DEPO_W0QQitemZ200197090357QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item 200197090357

They seem to look very nice and non-ricey.
Did anyone buy those and has any experience?

Thanks

These are the LED tails I have. Prices have come down in the past 12 months I paid in the high 300s for them last year.

The lights are very bright and they fit just like OEM.

are the turn signals also LED or are they "old style" bulbs?

The blinker and reverse lights are "old style"with this light.

I have heard of a few guys who have replaced their blinker bulb with an LED bulb. I am not sure if its plug and play.

Try superbrightleds.com

I remembered that this video

Shows these lights on my car. I have the city lights on so you can see the rear lights, the brakes are applied and you can see the blinker working.
