Installed my taillights today. Took me about an hour and a half. Pretty straightforward install. You reuse your turn signal and reverse bulbs and the new taillight does not need the side marker connection.

You do have to be careful to leave enough slack on the wires before the hinge going to the trunk lid. I wrapped mine in electrical tape and used cable zip ties for a neat install.

The quality is excellent and the LED illumination is dramatic compared to stock. Here are some pics...

Very nice, finally some good pictures showing how the brake lights work.... all of the red lights just get brighter. Turn signal seems kinda small.

I think I've asked this before, but how do the trunk lights get power for the red parking and brake lights? Since the stock setup is only reverse light there.
Yep. I guess to make the LED frame larger and more dramatic, they sacrificed the size of the turn and reverse windows. No biggie though....

There is an extension wire harness that goes from the right tailight to the trunk lid. This sends power to the red LED illumination on the right trunk lid piece. A shorter cable then daisy chains the piece on the left side.

Yeah the red version is growing on me but I'm just trying to see if the black one will go with magnetic gray.

Looking at different Gen7 MGM pictures on different lighting conditions, the black version did not look alright at all just by imagining it haha.

Still waiting for someone who has them on an MGM.

Yeah nobody has posted pics with the smoked out LED taillights yet, right? I have a black gen 7 and would be curious to see what these looked like, but I am definitely not going for a cheaper look.

I like these new style tail lights. Do the 3 spot leds come on while running as well or just during braking?

I cant decide between the red or all smoked. Is the red still a darker shade compared to the oem red?
