    Tail Lights broken during shipping...Twice

    Ordered a set of the Smoked/Clear tail lights and 3rd Brake light for the STS-V
    The Brake light arrived in 4 days.
    The Tail lights took 2 weeks, and one was broken when I opened the box, GM doesn't put much protection in the packaging.
    Returned for a replacement set...2 more weeks ... another broken pass side lens.
    Returned with fingers crossed, 3rd times a charm right.

    That's crazy. I do agree on the minimal packaging though. But I had no issues with them.

    I had the *same* exactly problem - the drivers side was perfect, and the right side was cracked at the top left and bottom right. Second time was the charm for me!

    A GM dealer , but not a sponsor of this forum.

    After 2 broken sets I got a refund, trying another source this time.

    Seven weeks and three sets of broken lens later
    I finally got a set to arrive undamaged.
    Now I'm thinking save a little cash for Chromed wheels.
