    Default Tail lights for Hatchback

    Hi guys,

    I am not looking to replace my tail lights to LED shown in the picture.
    Some sellers actually advertised that the tail lights are only for sedan/saloon version and some did not mention at all for sedan or hatch.
    Does anyone know whether the tail lights are actually difference between the sedan & hatch?

    I can't decide which one to go. Please help!

    I was tossing around between these below.

    1. Smoke/red LED tailight - (most expensive option & very keen on this but I can't find the seller that sell this colour & willing to ship to Australia)

    2. Black lexus style taillight - (next expensive option but not that keen on this)

    3. Black trim taillight cover (3rd expensive option & not sure how it looks like on my vectra)

    4. Replace bulbs with LED (cheapest option but may not look as good as above options)

    My vectra is silver colour and the existing taillight is smoke/red colour.

    Personally I don't like the Lexus lights, and don't waste money on the LED bulb option as mostly they still throw up Canbus errors unless you buy the very expensive ones, so for me it would be LED tail lights and coloured indicator bulbs

    The LED taillights have 3 colours.
    Red/Smoke, Red/Crystal & Smoke.
    Which colour will go well with my sliver vectra?
    I prefer the Red/Smoke colour because is the same colour with my existing taillights. I am not so sure about the smoke one. When the taillight is on, it looks good but not when it is off. It might go well with sliver,I don't know. Has anyone seen any sliver vectra with the smoke LED taillight?

    My problem now is I can't find any sellers from ebay who sell the red/smoke taillights that ship to Australia.

    I can only find the red/crystal & smoke that they do ship to Australia.
    Damn it.
