Re: XE Taillights onto a XF

Cos they look better

They dont fit. The metal is different, the hole spacing is different. I spent 2 hours at pick a part trying to make them fit and they wouldnt go.

Re: XE Taillights onto a XF

because someone backed into my right rear taillight and the indicator is busted. my xf is my bunky getaround (especially now the sprint is being deregistered) and i have a heap of XE taillights laying around...

thought i'd drop em in to keep the coppers away from me.

my mate with a XD put in taillights from a XF and i swore there was welding/metalwork that was required.... thanks guys

still after a driver's side XF taillight if anyone has one
