    I had bought a left taillight to start with from a scrapyard for a good price as it had some scratches but they forgot to tell me about the crack!
    This light came from a 2013 with only 23000km on the clock. They have a set from a 2010 but it has 100000km on the clock and am a little concerned how long they will last before leds will start to fail.
    Got a full refund so will continue searching and fill up the lighting fund.
    There is no substitute for cubic inches!

    A new tail light from Jaguar is £200 and the fog/reverse light £100. Why buy scrap?

    I do not offer advice, I only say what I would do with the set of circumstances presented. Your choice always.

    Thanks but with VAT and shipping it's a little to pricey for my budget.

    I don't want led lights in my old units, that's pointless. I like the look of the OEM rear led lights that came 2010.
