Hi all,

As this forum helped me many times, I have a little ask from 4s owners. I have idea to put the blend beetwen lights from 4s to my Carrera and here I need measures from this blend to measure if is possible to do it. Can anybody help me?

Best regards,

Kras

Kras,

I am not sure I understand your question completely, however the measurement I think you are asking for is the distance between the tail-lights on a C4S ( so you can compare it with your narrowbody spacing to see if placing the reflective strip on a C4S will fit on your car. My first reaction is "no" as the widebody is approximately 2+ inches wider than the narrowbody.

However, here are the dimensions I took off my MY02 C4S coupe. Overall length of the reflective strip 33 3/8 inches on the lower portion of the reflective strip (closest to the plastic bumper). Overall width from lowest portion of the taillights 33 7/8 inches. There is a 1/4 space on each side of reflective strip from each tail-light to allow for clearance when the rear-hatch opens.

Hope this helps. Demosan :cheers:

Hi Demosan,

Thank you very much for your help. I know that 4s and turbo are wider, but not beetween lights. I had allready original 4s bumper fitted to narrowbody. As everyone says, that this is easy, I had few problems with it. But now it fits like original. I know this will be another challenge, but cold days are coming and I have time to think about this conversion. Now I have another request for you, if you be so kind: I need also the measure of height of reflective strip and the tickness, because I know the lights are different.

Thanks again,

Kras

Hi,

As I said there were few problems I must tell you that this is not only "cut in the middle 1,5 inch".

If you do this, the bumper will stick a little by the lights and I think this is only half way. But if you want it right, you must cut also on the sides. It is not a easy job. I can send you pictures of progress if you want.

Best regards,

Kras

Kras,

I have taken some measurements for you, however I would suggest you look at a C4S to get the complete picture of the reflective strip shape as it is not just a flat strip. When I looked at mine it is more comlex shape than I thought, i.e. there is "lip" on the lower surface that aligns with the lower surface edge of the engine hatch. On the upper surface it is curved and mounts on a recess that is on the engine hatch. that said, here are the dimensions you had requested: thickness reflective strip .25 inches. overall width approx. 3 15/16 inches ( this dimension is bit difficult to measure on the car as the upper edge of the reflective strip is curved and mounts on a recessed surface on the motor hatch.

Hope this helps!!
