I remember a number of years back a dealership in New Jersey got a shipment of brand new squad cars for the NYPD. Of the twenty or so cars, three said "Grand Marquis" on the back instead of "Crown Victoria" (one even said "Grand Marquis LS"), and one had a Mercury horn button.

Yea, the European taillights have the LED accents on them, we don't. Same with their headlights.

Now, if they magically screwed up on the front and gave you both oh my that would be so many levels of win.

I don't see a noticeable difference. I can't imagine why anyone would care.

The phone pic doesn't do it justice. In person it's much more noticeable, especially when driving behind it.

Yes, most people don't drive behind their own cars.

Did Ford put Euro taillights on my car by mistake? I have no idea and I highly doubt that anyone else cares one bit.

They put a Euro tail light on one side and a U.S. tail light on the other side.

I care quite a bit, because I like the look of the Euro tail more than the U.S. tail. I am glad the OP shared his picture and story.

Don't you hate it when people care about things you don't care about?

It's great that pictures of Euro taillights make you happy. I'm happy for you.
