I need to attend to the light crazing on my rear lights (centre and both sides).

Is it possible just to replace the lenses, or have members found it better to replace the units themselves?

Looks like it could be expensive...!

Wave goodbye to your £700.

You will never be happy until you have.

We've all been there.

I’ve a set of rear lights from a 964 in the garage.

Used set but might do you a good turn (mix and match both sets.)

PM me your email and I’ll get some photos over if any good make me a silly offer.

I re-lenses my corner ones, I think the lenses were £110.

I bought a new centre light which was £350.

The match isn't perfect but for the sake of a slight difference, I can't justify £380 for new corner lights, I'm hoping they'll fade a touch Smile

As Pete says you'll never be happy until you buy new a process nearly all 964 owners have gone through Rolling Eyes

If you fancy a nice near new oliptical slash (tasteful) stainless exhaust tip for £85 to replace that drainpipe give me a shout. Straight replacement from the olive connector Thumb

Hi all
We are in the same position with ours and have seen on type911 that they have reproductions for the lights but not the centre section. They are a bit cheaper at £145+VAT per corner (vs £200+VAT) but I'm not sure how well they will match a new centre section - which i guess is genuine only ATM?

Just a thought but wondered if anyone had tried these perhaps please or are they the same finish/colour as the the separately available lenses?

Might be of use perhaps...

Sorry I haven't worked out how to paste a link
