Anyone done HID reverse 08+

Iv seen a thread on 05-07 hid conversion on tails which looks much easier then the 08+ tails..

Just wondering if any one has done this and the steps they took for mounting the bulbs themselves

Re: Anyone done HID reverse 08+

I know a few have... Not myself personally. I would recommend LED's and not HID's and that's just me. The HID's may take too long to warm up, possibly not worth it. IMO.

Haha don't blame you. If/when you do this, you should set it up so then you can turn them on while driving. That'd be sick.

Re: Anyone done HID reverse 08+

first off, the 07+ tails are the same, its the 05/6 that is different.

i have them on my 07. I was able to take part of the stock reverse socket and siliconre it to the HID capsule so now it goes into the tail same as oem .

If Im wrong about the year then my bad lol.

But if yours has "sockets" I dont think its like mine. If you could show me a pic that would be great.


My tails are the 2 bulb style with one reverse and one dual filament bulb for turn and brake. the only write-ups iv seen are on the 3 bulb style with the "sockets"

Id dunno maybe ill just find something else to work on.

07+ have one bulb for turn/park/blink and one bulb for reverse.
the early ones use a 3157 for reverse. the 07+ use a 921.




have fun
I wasnt asking for you to take it off. I thought you might have a pic of your install. I wasn't doubting you on the tails when I think sockets I think of the other style tails.
