Depo LED Tail Lights Installed

Just wanted to thank those who helped me with this. Im such a newbie to Porsches. At any rate- here is a crappy iPhone night time pic. The lights look amazing, so clean, so Euro LOL.

The left side passenger tail light is burnt out. I have to go get another. Im not sure if it blew when I installed or if it was like that...

Thanks again guys for the help!

They are quite bright. I'm home alone tonight, so Before I bolted the drivers side tail light in, I let it dangle and stepped on the brake while standing up and looking back at it- I like them so far. Bright when breaking, but not obnoxious.

AS requested, a little easier on the eyes, took the pic this morning before heading to work-

Still need to get the silver colored amber lights for the clear sections.

I did mine (Arctic Silver) and my friends loved the look so much I've painted 2 more sets.

Best thing is look for a white 987, it will give you a better idea of how they change the look of the car.

I see what you are saying, they kind of have a nice contrast like the black top does. Black always goes good with white. You will like them white though I bet, if you get them done professionally the way I did (mine is red/red) it looks really nice. Either way can't go wrong. Like those tail lights. I was looking at the following, wasn't sure but yours are similar and look really nice.
