No, I cancelled my order because I think they will melt part of the tail light ***'y and don't want a $$$ fix on my hands.

IMO wise move. Could melt the housing plus cause other electrical problems. That would be the last thing anyone with a Porsche needs (where electrical issues are the Achilles' heel of the car).

LGARCIA will become famous soon enough
Too bad there isn't an aftermarket solution that can solve this issue. Something along a more aggressive looking lower bumper diffuser and extra reverse light.

Here is an example with a carbon diffuser I had with a light combo on a Nissan 370Z...

For the reverse light you would need it to be white leds.....

Got a package from China yesterday


I had tried to order the same lights as skiracer, but they where no longer available on Amazon, so I got these, 50 watts 900lm!! (also amazon)



the camera does it's best to adjust for the available light so the dramatic difference is hard to see in these, but if you look carefully there are some good clues.
BEFORE:


AFTER:


I took a picture of the part tag on the housing, if someone has the housing without the access hatch they might be able to find some that has it.


if you can find some from a salvage yard for a good price the upgraded lights are worth it.
of course that is assuming the tag on the non hatch ones are different....

here you go ciaka

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MV6QVZ2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MV6QVZ2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
plug and play and a very noticeable improvement, not bad for $25 they also arrived about 5 days faster than predicted

you'll want to check your tail light assembly before ordering them, make sure you have the access hatch
