New tail lights, anyone have installed yet??

Seen some new tail lights and was wondering if anyone has yet to order and install them?? They are eagle eye brand which I couldn't find any info on but really want to see if these are cheap quality or not. Basically a knock off of the 2013 but if anyone has any info!!

They look not too bad. Would look better with black housing.

Most aftermarket headlights and tail lights are not good quality. Many leak and burn out quickly. I'd stick with OEM and customize it from there. Lots of great places out there that can make your wildest dreams come true

I had Eagle Eye headlights in my last car. They had problems with the socket where they plug into the car's wire harness. Didn't get a good seal on the weatherpack connection, so they corroded and needed replacing.

Also, they had ccfl halos with bad ballasts. Sometimes they worked, sometimes they didn't.

In addition to that, they leaked.

I won't buy Eagle Eyes again.

I ordered a set because my BK1 taillights are looking like crap (VHT'd them and they faded after 2yrs so now the clear coat is really hazy) and should have them on Monday. Didn't want to pay $400+ for OEMs, not now at least. These were $250 on Amazon.

They make a set of these with the brake part already colored red. Those red reflectors stick out like a sore thumb without it.

Will do. Here's a pic from the FB post I saw that caught my attention initially.

Alright, so after seeing some fitment issues with these SPPC lights on the FB group, I ended up ordering some OEM BK2 tails instead. The SPPC lights will be shipped back to Amazon for a refund and I'll be doing the 'Audi mod' to the OEM lights when they come on Monday.

How bad was the fitment? I ordered a pair of the SPPC last night I just personally cant bring myself to pay 400+ for those tail lights even though I contemplate it everyday haha

It varies and some of it might be user error, who knows. I just don't want to deal with gaps here and there, even though they're cheap lights they should still fit correctly, IMO.

That and I also saw a post by someone who got them who said the brake lights are pretty dim, like barely brighter than the running lights since they're supposedly only single filament LEDs.

Shipped that is about right. They are expensive but worth it, don't have to worry about burnt out led's, leaking etc.

Plus they look great.

I actually was debating between these, the superlux v3, and OEM. I've been told that the eagle eyes are flemsy plastic and break easily from my modder (he's worked with a few trying to black house them). Fitment I've seen on other GC's and they looked fine but I never got a closeup view so I can't confirm. Ended up going with the OEMs and modding them. Couldn't be happier!

Looks good Gainz! I like the contrast of gold on black with the oem red on the outside.
