Depo LED taillights, who has them?

Need to find a photo of a 986 with the Depo LED taillights. They're sold on ebay if anyone wants to know.

Just wanted to see how they look...

I've got them, but there are different colors - all red, red and clear, red and white, black, and clear/chrome. The ones I have are the chrome/clear ones.

I have them in the "standard" (tinted) version.
I am currently on a business trip, I can attach an image when I come back by the end of the week.

I generally like them but there's two words of warning:
a) The only functions where normal light bulbs have been replaced by LED are
- brake light
- rear fog light
so I was a bit disappointed when I figured out that the normal rear lights are still using a light bulb

IMHO I'd rather have the rear lights in LED than the fog light which I NEVER use

b) the small position lights at the very far outside of each light have been eliminated.

Hey Kirk,

Your ride is BAD ASS bro !

How much did the Gemballa bumper / exhaust set you back ?

They should really rename it DamnBalla because thats what ppl say when they see your car with that kit.

Thanks Nefarious986, I got a kick out of your comments.

I think I posted something about my costs in this thread, there are more pictures of the car with a babe there too...

I think the Gemballa bumper is like $6,500 and $2,000 for the exhaust, but I could be wrong. I got a deal on mine though...
