By the way, if you have upgraded from the amber ones, can you plase kindly post some pics. Thanks and have a nice day.

I am looking to do this too.

Apparently, the 'right' way to it is buy the Porsche items from the dealer. A bunch of Porsche dealers in Excellence magazine sell them.

You're right about the ebay units. Most just don't look right for some reason.

Also, it seems everyone refers to 'clear' taillights when they really mean red and clear. Am I right on this?

Try Brandywine Porsche in Pennsylvania.

I bought mine there and they are OEM... paid less than 180.00 U.S. for the
pair. A great and instant improvement...

If you get their phone number, give them a call and speak to the performance parts specialist. Someone there will make sure you get what you need!

The install of the new tail lamps was a real let down for me. It only took fifteen minutes! I was hoping it would have taken longer to enjoy the process

You're dead on with the aftermarket lamps... they just don't look right. Buy factory ones on sale somewhere. Suncoast sold me mine for $149 on sale.
