I'm selling the original tail lights that came in my 2018 Macan GTS bought I Oct 2018 in Porsche Austin.
Since they're from GTS, they have a darker tone (they're tinted) - could be a direct replacement for your GTS or a nice upgrade to the standard red lights that come in Base, S or Turbo.

Comes as a complete set, with left and right tail lights.

They're 100% operation and look like new.
I had them replaced with a European version as I wanted amber indicators.
I had them taken off by Porsche Austin few days ago (Feb 3rd 2018) - can show paperwork.

Asking price $475

I wish there would be available aftermarket tail lights for the pre-facelift, mimicking the four strips of LED's on the new models. They're so much more Porsche like and the touch is so premium looking, not saying the old design is not unique and fitting, I just like to have an option.

I’ve been thinking about using tint film to completely blackout the outer rear light except for 2 upper and lower 2” strips to mimic the newer look.

Laminex has a precut kit. Has anyone tried it out? Porsche Macan (15- ) Tail Light Covers

Who put aftermarket lights on their Porsche?

Hence my interest in these lights!

Very cool. Do you have new pictures of the euro versions? :)
They look exactly the same (even with the lights ON) - it's only when I put hazard lights or indicators is flashes orange. Quite an experience ;-)

Here's a quick video with the amber (EURO) indicators. I think the GIF doesn't reflect how bright and orange they actually are. I love it!

I installed with soap and water. The trouble is forming them to the deep curves of the lights. The pre cut film only allows for minimal stretching. Which is the downfall to the kit..

So does the outer ring light up at all? With headlights on is the center strip still red? And just switches to yellow for turn signal?

Curious as to how these operates. I know there is a variety of discussion on region specific tail lights but curious how these operate when you just plug them into us spec car. Did you have to get them coded?

The ring remains unchanged in the EURO lights - it's only for stop-light. It's the center LED strip that can now have a constant red for regular beam + flashing orange for indicators...but it kinda comes from the same center strip.
