God I wish we could have the led all red rear lights on ours. I hate the orange lights and at the minute the only option is an expensive one from the states

Re: C6 European Rear Light Conversion


Good Luck! Not easy? Here's a comment from a very old post:

"Are you talking about "Euro" rear light lenses? Try contacting Paul Strudwick at Teslayn Engineering need Bicester as he has already converted a C6 to pass the SVA. He told me that converting the C6 is a pig of a job as all of the lights are computer controlled and therefore changing things like adding side lights etc is not just a wiring job..."

Teslayn no longer in business? But this was their solution at the time:

Re: C6 European Rear Light Conversion


I have kept my US rear lights, see here in my second post: https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=47&t=175...

I used products from Radioflyer Innovations (switchback running/indicator lights and fog/reverse) and Cartown blinker splitter. Smile

It was very easy, although I had the rear bumper off at the time to sort the rest of the rear lights. Smile I had to install a fog light switch (bought from Cartown as the font is near perfect match) and run wires to it, but at the rear it was just a case of plugging in.
