    are V and non-V tail lights the same part? (2006 model)

    Hi forum friends,

    I've been pulled over 5 times by the Florida Highway Patrol for my tail lights. I finally went to a tint shop to have the tint removed (I assumed it was tinted) and the employee says "Sorry man, these are painted". Thankfully most of the troopers have been cool but I fear my luck is running thin. Since they are painted, I would like to trade or buy a different set. The OEM replacements are crazy expensive so I first wanted to ask: Do the regular CTS and CTS-V share the same tail lights for 2006? This should help my search in finding either replacements for purchase or someone who wants blacked out tail lights.

    Thanks in advance for your help. I'll post another thread with pictures once I get the answer

    Luke

    I've tried this with paint thinner and no luck. I'll try brake cleaner and see what happens. Thank you for the idea

    If you want normal tail lights, mine are for sale. They include Cree and OSRAM LEDs and load resistors already installed.
