Holy smokes, that looks like the next generation Boxster. That butt … uhm rear looks 20 years younger now. AWESOME!
Are there any build-in reflectors?

Wow. Those look good. I got tinted ones but might be regretting that after seeing those pics/vid. Can't wait to see your video and lights on. I will be putting mine in this week hopefully also.

I would recommend the LED headlights from https://www.xenonpro.com/led-headlights has anyone else ordered from them before?

I am interested! Would've liked to have seen backup lights and rear fogs.
I think your daughter is inheriting the Boxster.

rflores2323,

Those look great. I'm going to get a pair myself but am wondering how to handle the Texas requirement of must have two red reflectors on the rear. The tail lights themselves are DOT compliant but Texas has additional requirements for two red reflectors if the tail lights don't have them. Are you just going to drive and take your chances? My city police are fairly aggressive and I finally had to mount a front license plate to keep from being stopped as I got warnings.

I'm going to look into those red reflecting license plate screws and see if those might be sufficient when I take off my current tails in favor of these.

Mike

Thanks. They look great and at night they really look awesome.

Yes I was thinking same thing with the reflector lights. Bought some small motorcycle red reflectors for license plate. Will see how they look. I really don't think most cops are looking for that. I probably would get pulled over for no front license plate as all my cars (navigator, Audi Q7, Kia optima, and boxster) don't have front plates. Lol.

So to answer some.... there are no reflectors on these lights.

Rear fog lights.... It's not a thing here in the US, I tried, but I could not get the to perform a rear fog light function.

Here is my little video of them.... Not the best video, and please note they are much brighter than what my phone makes them out to be

Here's what I picked up at Autozone today to potentially solve my reflector issue.

Overall they seem very futuristic. Rear fog lights [are] a thing in the U.S. My U.S. Specd Audi has them, my U.S. specd 2001 Porche Boxster S has them; they are brighter than brake lights, I use them in very snowy, foggy days to warn vehicles behind me I am there in limited visibility conditions in Colorado during the winters.

well IMO reflectors are a MUST, no matter if it is the law or not.
But I would go for original ones, e.g.

I just heard from a shop, that there were problems with the shape/fitment. They estimated at least 6 weeks before they will be available here.
So how do they fit, e.g. are the gaps okay?
Did anyone figure out the fog lights yet?

Here is a video of fitment on mine. I really don't see a fitment issue. Yes there is a small gap but it's not huge.

What is the mm gap with OEM lights?

I think they look great and if off by a few mm to me it's not a huge deal. They are aftermarket and not OEM but I know some people feel different and has to be perfect.

See video here

I am not affiliated with USR or Revi Motor Werks. Just passing along a possible good deal if there is enough interest



Tinted!
I am interested if someone can send me the discount code and a link on where to purchase!, thanks

Keep them pics coming, they look awesome! It certainly changes the rear impression of the Boxster. And not in a bad way.
@rflores2323, those gaps don't look bad, I am pretty sure that you can adjust the lights a little bit more to get rid of the "gaps". Even happens with OEM rear lights.
