Arrow Everyone Please - 3: Tail Lights

This thread concerns:

3: Tail Lights

I have seen several aftermarket products out there regarding tail lights and again I personally like to stick with OEM or Hella or Bosch. If anyone can offer info on this subject, it would be greatly appreciated. I would especially like to know part numbers. Here are some pics of some lights that I have found:

Pic 1: Here is a HELLA Black. Anybody have part numbers?


Pic 2: I love this car! I believe these are the same.


Pic 3: Are these the same lights under different lighting:


Pic 4: Who makes these?


Pic 5: These look the same as Pic 4


Pic 6: These are my favourite


Pic 7: These look like Pic 6


HELLA part numbers:

Smoked:2VP 004 686-151 Left with reversing light and rear fog lamp
Smoked:2VP 004 686-181 Right with reversing light and rear fog lamp

Anyone have lights with these part numbers?

Here are some more different lights:

Pic 8: These definitely look aftermarket


Pic 9: These look real cheap


Pic 10: These look to be of better quality


Pic 11: I think they blend in nicely in that car


Did Bosch or Hella ever make an all clear?

From the myriad of pics you've presented, I believe there are only four versions of taillights...OEM US, OEM Euro, tinted, and clear.

The lighting conditions make for most of the differences you see in the pics.

www.************************ carries the smoked version. Don't know who carries the clear or Euro ones...

Select "Taillights"



I just have to say that Shantas 500 is just looking BADASS in that picture Clear tailights really look good on silver W124's.

Yes.
The mountings are the same.

The only differences you will see is the tailight bulb holder which is a separate piece from the lenses and is usually sold separately. If you are shopping around and you here the word "assembly" then that usually means they are selling you the bulb holder as well as the lens which you may not need. A european light bulb holder does not have the provision for the tiny sidelight. The sidelight is built into the bulb holder not the lens, this is important to note.

Also for the front turn signal the european lenses do not have the side reflector built into the lens. The bulb and bulb sockets are different but fit the same hole in the lens.

Is this what you mean Captain Caveman? The middle piece in the picture.

LOL Yeah the pieces in the center and on the right sometimes come as one unit. They are different for a euro because there is no side light so there is no cut out and no extra wiring for it.

So if I were to order just the piece on the left from Europe and mount it on my North American assembly than I should be fine...right?
