I was happy enough with the standard lights, but thought these do look better and more up to date. It was following Andy on the Scottish road trip last year with these fitted and comparing them to the others in the convoy with standard S1 lights that convinced me to get them. They are so much brighter and it is so much easier to see when the brakes are being applied.

The same used to be said about HID's headlight bulbs, now replacements on the net cost the same as halogen bulbs at your local Halfords.

They are similer in style to the R3 lights everyone wants however they do not require any modification to the cars chassis (unlike the Original R3 lights) They also fit with the Series 1 Body Lines.

Image

These high quality LED Tail Light clusters are styles to look like the Later R3 style tail lights. However unlike the R3 Lights these are designed to fit the Series 1 RX-8 chassis without need for modification.

Made to a high OEM Quality These units are a direct fit and feature ultra bright high intensity LED's for superior visibility over the standard bulbs found in the series 1 light clusters.

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOi1I6sjk5s[/youtube]

These units are a full conversion and require no modification or transfer of parts from your existing lights.
Simple to install, Just unbolt your original units and then bolt these in to place, no hassle and no fuss.
These Units come with the clear lens for superior visibility even during the day.

Priced at £249.99
These are now in stock and ready for delivery.
Quite fancy ordering these !is there any club discount ? cheers Steve

Hi All...sorry to be a bit of a numpty but I have received these lights and upon opening them I thought I get some instructions on fitting them...there wasn't any so can anyone help in terms of what I need to do in terms of connecting up please...I think the reverse and indicator bulbs on the old stock lights just slot into the new lights but not sure what to do with the 2 little connectors and the big flat one...sorry for not using the correct technical terms etc...

Many thanks

No still not LED`s the same lights from what I can see they probably didn`t include LED`s there as they are both small bulbs/lenses but I have a LED bulb in the reversing light and the OE bulb in the indicator which seems OK.

like a missing tooth when smiling. seen this too on mercs look awful.

I have these lights, the build quality is very good. the plastics dont feel as good as OEM (cheaper with less glass content i assume) but that has f##k all to do with the lights being good or bad, they look GORGEOUS.

That's just greedy having two sets, smoked and not smoked, personally I think I prefer the smoked.
