A quick question..... if i got a later Reg Gen 2 rear lights and fit them on an early gen 2 model or even any year Gen 2, will it work as normal or Vise Verse?

Its that i was told they are chassis/reg number dependant!! As some will not work as the electronics in the lights where different.

Is this true or is someone spoon feeding me bull sheet 😁

Cheers

J

Even the PCB/circuits boards inside the lights you can swap right to left/left to right (if say, you wanted the fog light on the LHS etc).

One thing to be aware of is the LED colour did change sometime through the gen 2 life, my 2010 C4S originally had yellow coloured LEDs. This is colour of the plastic body of the LED not the colour of the light from the LED, the replacement unit due to water ingress had clear body LEDs so luckily both were replaced under warranty so they matched.
