Hi,

Did you have any luck finding LED rear light units for the 996? Was going to change to all red or red/clear but I saw aftermarket LED types on an early boxter this week and they look really good.

Anyone know of a supplier for the 996?

Cheers

I got the LED 3rd brake lights on Ebay that work good. I also bought a pair of led bulbs for the tail lights, but they were not bright enough, so I never kept them on

No answer from FK automotive regarding plans to develop LED tail-lights for the 996 despite two e-mails. Guess I will have to look at other options for replacing the red/amber on my car.

I like the clear and red style but I begrudge paying £600+ when the equivalent Boxter, 993 and 997 lamps are less than half this price. Why are the red/clear rear lights for the 996 so overpriced?

I've seen custom all red lights on a white GT2, they looked v.good. I think I will go the along the same route and paint the existing amber lamps with a translucent red (leaving a few lines for the amber to shine through) followed by lacquer coats.

I'll post a pic when they are done.

Cheers. :renntech:

I found these on ebay anyone got these on yet? pics?

LED taillights

Let it be. It only looks good on the 997 MK2. Just having LED in the rears doesn't cut it. You need the aesthetic all around.

This type of mod is no better actually perhaps worse than the VW Jetta guys putting on 12 Kelvin HID units with under body neon lights.

There go my underbelly lighting plans...... :rolleyes:

well the only exception is if you have whisper quiet PSS9s, then the neon lights are a go.. if that's the rep you got around town.

i think LEDs are a great aesthetic addition on top of the safety/reliability benefits, but it needs to come from the factory that way since it joins front to back.

if porsche released 996 c4s/turbo LED rear lights as part of an update program, heck i'd hit it. i've just seen too many aftermarket setups on Ford pickups and such where it looks like crap.

If you go on Ebay and type in "Porsche 996 led tail light" you get a bunch of them on sale. These are actually replacing the whole tail lights not the 3rd brake light.

Kristian

Love the new rear LED lights on the 997. Does anyone know if there are any available for the 996?

Thanks
