I ordered a set from the dealer only to find out they have been discontinued? I was able to fine a set for $300.00 but are they really not being made anymore. Dealer said they were prone to cracking?

I've had mine over a year and they're fine. I suspect it's more along the lines of cost reduction in parts that are low volume sales.

Agreed with CIWS on the sales - and yes; the first set I recieved one of them was cracked and I a difficult time getting the second set but finally did.

I have a one clear lamp for the drivers side thats brand new in the box; If I find a mate for it to make a set I will let you know.

Cracking during shipping for sure.
I had to order 4 times to get 1 set that was in good condition.:eek:
Now my concern is the durability on the car.
I also added the smoked 3rd brake light, Sure is a great looking change.:cool2:

Thanks for the pic. Those clear tails really dress up the rear. Why did you not do the 3rd brake light? Does it not look as good?

Any of it's really a matter of personal taste. For me I liked the way the red 3rd brake worked with the small bit of red in the clear tails on the black car.

Ouch, problem with motor or something all the V guys should be watching for?
No the oil pump failed and took out the engine is all. I doubt its a common problem but there was a STS-V at the dealer getting new timing chains on his V due to them stretching?
