    Cool Re: Clear Tail Lamp Package on a Crystal Red car

    Mine is Euro spec and came with clear tail lights and red spoiler brake light on the trunk lid. In South Africa, we get Euro versions of everything because we are right hand drive like the UK. I want to switch mine to red tail lights. The clear tail lights don't do well in the sun and get strange staining and water marks on the joins in the plastic lense of the tail light.

    I had some custom New York plates made for my car because the stupid Euro plates we have in this country make the car look hideous. When I look at a car, I don't want to see license plate on wheels, I want to see my car!

GM # 22752227 left side and 22752228 right side. These are Genuine GM part numbers and D.O.T
    OEM clear euro/ export tails lamps require repining the wire/pins inside the connector on the harness plus some electronic tweak to work on a US spec CTS. I like the overall look of them and I wish they had clear 3rd brake light for the V series cts. I plan on tinting mine down a shade or two which will look much better IMO.

    If you have a U.S. CTS do you still have to modify the pin/plug I want these on my gold mist CTS but don't want to modify

    It look good...but will it be safe. When I stop, I want the driver see my tail lights...no excuses! I've see other cars with their tail lights tinted, and I could barely see their brake lights when they brake.

    GM makes the US version and it is plug-n-play
