5th GEN: eBay OEM Style Taillights

People always bash on eBay and their stuff they sell, yeah pretty much all of it sucks but these taillights are top quality and in my opinion look better the the OEM taillights. So I thought I'd do a review on them.
Bought them on eBay for 78 bucks shipped, took about a week to get to my house. They are replacing my horrible atezzla lights that came with the car.
Quality of shipping was good, wrapped in bubble wrap and stuffed with those foam peanut things.
First look they looked amazing! No defects at all. One downfall is the gaskets it comes with, they are exactly the size of the lights and won't make a good seal without a ton of work luckily my original gaskets were still good. So make sure your gaskets are still good or order some new OEM ones.
Installation: Easy peasy fitment was overall perfect other then a minor gap where it curves but it's not noticeable.
I give it a 9/10 only cause the crappy gaskets and minor gap.
Pros: Look better then OEM. No amber turn signal. Good fitment. Cheap
Cons: Crappy gaskets. small minor gap.

This ^ I did not notice how awful the brake light output was during the day. Drove home one day and my dad drove behind me and told me both my brake lights weren't working. Later we found out the bulbs were working but the taillights weren't emitting the light at all. Combination of the lenses being darker then OEM and the reflector on the inside being crappy or non existent.
I recently ditched them for some real OEM taillights. After seeing that I don't recommend buying these and better off buying real OEM taillights.

Yeah they're much darker. I liked the way they looked but the output was just way too bad.

Re: 5th GEN: eBay OEM Style Taillights

Since I'll be doing an LED tail light conversion in the near future, I think I might order a set of these ebay tails. I don't think output will be a problem with the LEDs. What do you think?

Re: 5th GEN: eBay OEM Style Taillights

Sorry for the late reply. I'm not too sure. I don't think the lens being darker was the reason why the output was bad. I think the reflective housing inside was the issue, either it sucked or there wasn't any. I wouldn't mind opening them up check It out.
