Always good to see new takes...although this is not quite my cup of tea. I would prefer the 718 style
This looks nice as well. Do you have a link to this?

Maybe they already don't, but come on, let a person do what he/she wants with their cars. Just sayin'..
So who's stopping anyone from doing changes to their cars ? We are just discussing whether we like or don't like these tail lights . You might want to try some decaf

Totally get that and would never want discussion to stop. Some people just come across as condescending instead of just expressing a preference. Gets old And I've never seen the point of decaf. Hot bean water?

hahaha...same discussions, and luckily never get old.
Different opinions are always good...just Image, if we all would (have) to agree 99.97% ---> "The Horror"
Okay some more pics. I personally never liked the bling bling LEDs (tail or front), but the new take ones seem to follow the same pattern. Whereas the 718 style seems to follow the latest "ambient" LED Technology. It is just not "right in your eyes".
718 style quality wise? They are twice as expensive as the new take ones, but that does not mean anything.
Both versions seem not to have reflectors, which to my understanding are mandatory. So they might need to be installed additionally.

Decaf? Okay, got it.

Now we need a new take on head lights (992 style would be nice). Hahaha...i just picture all These different styles on my Outlaw Boxster, it would be a true Frankenstein 986, awesome, lol

Asking for opinions on the internet you are going to get a variety of love it...... hate it......your an idiot.........your momma etc. If you don't like someones opinion just ignore it . Life is too short to care what others think ....... YOU have to be happy with your choices . Sure it feels good if 20 guys say your update of the moment is the greatest thing since sliced bread but that lasts for what 15 minutes ? Party on

Of all of the many iterations of tail lights I've gone through, these are my favorite

Just the '04 SE.
I just modified a stock amber set with VHT Nightshades red, though. See here: What did you do with/to your Boxster today?

With some mesh to hide the muffler... I like that look.

Now THAT Boxster would deserve the name "spyder".
Makes one squint and blink their eyes
