The pictures that gtferrari posted of the connectors go into the base of the bulb from the standard light, and then the base locks into the new light just like the old one.

this is what you are looking at

this is what holds the bulb in the housing. you will need to remove it and remove the bulb

then twist it into place on the new lights.

note that if you plug the harness in wrong the lights will not come on. just unplug it and turn it around and youll be good to go

Since i hate the led tails because the black chrome doesnt go all around like the ses so why not pry the led lense for the stock lense and paint the chrome

its pretty thin stuff. nothing like the headlights. you can go to an automatic car wash and crack the lenses pretty easily just from the water pressure. they tend to crack right along the color seam

So just a heads up about the company that's been selling them. THEY'RE GREAT. I bought these back in May and stuck them on (along with the headlights) right before FocusRising 2013. There were a total of 3 LEDs that we're out total between the two of the taillights. I never got around to contacting them for a replacement because right after FocusRising, I got really busy with school and work. Fast forward to this week, and I contacted them via email on eBay and they're sending me out new lights in an RMA. Of course, since my OEM lights are in bad shape, I put down a deposit on new headlights, and they shipped out the next day.

Sad story time: The lights were supposed to be here yesterday (10/31), but UPS seems to have lost them. I let them know what was happening with UPS, they told me they had insurance, and they shipped out another pair of lights today. Hopefully these won't be lost like the others.

Quick update, I went home from work shortly after typing that, and lo and behold, the lights were on the front porch! Still no update tracking, but they're on the car and no LEDs are out! I'm pretty happy.

I have a question for you. I'm interested in the LED taillights but would only like for the LED's line to light up like you have in the pic above but when I hit the brakes the actual LEDS for the brake lights come on, is this the default way or did you wire it differently so that the LED line is on when the lights are running


EDIT: I just read the text above the pic and ansered my own question so my next question is was it easy to do and do you have a video?
