    Has anyone got any pictures of the rear LED lights in operation? I'm particularly interested in the indicators.

    Cheers

    Thanks. I did try google - Honest! I must have been using the wrong search terms. I kept getting 8P rear lights or full LED headlights.

    haha! I was only ribbing!

    Anything you want to know about them specifically?

    From looking at mine it appears like multiple LEDs whereas the actual lights use optics like the 8P did. They're very bright and flick on and off quickly.

    If you manage it, please post a tutorial or something! Would there be any legal issues with doing this?

    It'll be a while - I'm not expecting my car before September! Could be a bit complicated too but I'd try and do a tutorial.

    IANAL but I'd think it's legal in Europe (the R8 does it). Probably not legal in America.

    Yeh - not so much that the effect itself is illegal, but more that you'd modify from the manufacturers original spec/function... guess I'm just being paranoid!

    That approach *might* be possible. Might require fitting some parts from the R8 though and I'm doubtful it could be done.

    I'm thinking of adding a little custom electronics module behind each rear light cluster (four in total) that would delay the switch on of the individual segments.
