Slightly darker than what? Do you have standard or alltrack rear lights?

I got the OEM tinted (Alltrack) units for mine from LLL - 2018 Tailgate (Rear Lid)

For RHD (Left hand traffic) vehicle choose wrong RHS fitting if wanting a matching look - You have to use a RED (preferably LED) bulb for the rear fog then.

I think it is worth doing if you are changing to tinted units

Not quite sure what exactly you mean ?

The fog light is still the same position, just without a red filter. So you have to use a red LED bulb (or a red filament bulb, but not as nice).

OK ?

Alltrack rears are tinted.
Also came with factory Xenon upgrade option I believe.

Thanks!

I’ve got factory xenon’s to fit this week - I’ll go for the All track rear lights once I’ve decided if I’m doing tailgate conversion or not 😂

Thanks for the info

How much did you pay for the xenons out of interest?

Crikey! I’ve seen new sets for about £1,600 but didn’t realise the second hand ones would be similarly expensive. Clearly in demand!

High demand - Top of the list Mod.

Even better when upgraded to 35W (New bulbs and ballasts)
