06-07 taillights on my 2008 M35x

Postby Sjohnson1896 » Wed May 02, 2018 5:54 am

I recently purchased this 2008 m35x I am aware of a previous accident but I recently noticed my taillights are different from everyone else’s ... anyone have a clue on how to switch back? I would like the newer rear end Image

Did you attempt to post an image? It's not showing for me

I don't know how you'd fit an 06 taillight considering the space for the 08 one is smaller, but I'd like to see the picture.

I personally thought the larger 06-07 set to be more visually appealing

No need to play the video, the thumbnail should show you enough what the difference in the rear end is

I wonder how the 2008 sport rear bumper would look on a 06?

You may be comparing your tail lights to an older model. They are VERY similar and you may not notice with a passing glance. If you look closely to the image above from Ed, you will see that the 06 and 07 models have a different trunk lid with round back-up lights, different front bumper, different grille, and different rear fenders. The 08 - 10 models also have blue-white dash illumination and some have the HR engine with dual intakes.

Here you are!
Some owners in Japan really did that, not just swap, need to be combined, it's really crazy and troublesome.
