I think the originals look better than any of the aftermarket. Easy switch out so you can go back if you change but something bugs me about these LED lights. Maybe its because they are cheap and every cheap car has them now. Same goes for sftermarket headlights. bizenon, hid, and incandescent lights will be the thing of fine cars in the future. Only hyundais etc will use the cheap glare producing LED's. Can you tell that all these jerks in hondas and other crap always want to race just because they are next to a 911?...lol

MkC2S, not sure how I missed this but they look way better in your pictures than on eBay. I have had my Depos on for many years and zero issues (I love them) but the ones you got look real good. I might need to catch up with you some time to check them out in person (live in north Frisco). Good to know you have had them on for a while now since this post maybe you can give some feedback on the quality.

Here are my Depo's they are real nice but my only complaint is when you brake it only lights up half the led's or this pattern ] [ and not the whole thing. I like the version you got as the whole thing lights up. Is the brake light a strip of LEDs? or the does the whole light bar get brighter?

I can see you're point but my Depos were not cheap and the build quality is extremely good, so to me they don't look cheap. I had the same concerns when buying my depos but once they arrived and I had a chance to look at them in person they didn't look cheap. They look very factory, can't say the same for other aftermarket lights as I haven't seen any others in person.

I have them for about a year now & it's still held up very well. So far no burn out on any LED's. Overall, I'm satisfy with them. I thought about the smoked version but wasn't sure how dark it is. I can always tint the clear part.



park light (photo looks orange but it's red in person)



foglight & parklights (Foglight are LED's not incandescent bulb like other set)



brake lights (single strip & plenty bright IMO)



blinkers



reverse brightness in dark

All I can say is....keep your originals. Mark my words....when clean 997's become the collectables I feel they will...the originals will be what is important. The 997.1 is the last 911 to have incandescent tails and it is a signpost that will be important down the road. same goes for all the led's that are being modded into headlights and interiors. There is a reason why Porsche design is respected. Why not put Led headlights in a 356? Blasphemy IMO.

Thanks for posting these pictures, I always worry that the brake lights aren't bright enough in daylight but now that I see it, they are good enough.... might have to order a pair for my self....
Any error codes ?

I'm way ahead of you. Kept all my stock parts this time. Learned my lesson when I traded my 996 with all the goodies & they offered me less with aftermarket parts.
