New RX8 lights fitments?
« on: February 24, 2011, 08:31:24 AM »
I am looking to get an RX8 very soon and have noticed that the 08> have very very nice rear light clusters does anyone know how they vary on size and shape from earlier ones?

I wish they would be straight swap but guessing they are totally new shape? I like the old style but new ones just fit my personal taste that little bit more :cool

Anyone done the swap?

Think Clive had to fit an R3 bumper to make the lights fit although others have fitted them with modifications to the old bumper but they never look quite right.
