Hey some good looking taillights ideas! I really enjoyed your first design, It looks very modern and aggressive. I've always had a soft spot for custom lighting on vehicles

I came across a page on Instagram that makes extremely custom lighting for practically any vehicle. He has some designs very similar to this, bold and modern. The company is P.LUXE and I think they do a great job.

Just something I happened to stumble upon, not trying to advertise, being that they are running about 1,200 a pair for taillights. A titch out of a budget build range but still very very cool

Sick! I mean, if I can mock some up for my 240 with good quality LEd Boards and Lights. I don't mind taking orders but I will have to do them first. Yeah the LED tail lights are ridiculous in pricing.

Paint skills 10/10! When I get home today I can see about Photoshoping the audi ones on for a more "realistic" look.

I want to get more into led light designing but man..... getting clean LED lighting without that nasty hot spotting and diode look is hard. I know some people really like that diode look but I prefer a nice "solid" color.

If you get examples of the tail lights from other cars, I should be able to edit them in as long as they are not completely different shapes (i.e. using Tahoe taillights).

that being said, can you do the lambo headlights from Aventador to the kouki ones? Also the Audi Design to the Tail lights? I would honestly do that to my 14 if I had a Template and good Solid Led light.


Edit: Sorry I meant to say the Lambo Huracan Head lights.

I like the first one if it contoured the shape of the tail light.

If you have the resources I'd say, DO IT!

Even for your own purpose, the worst it can be is unique right?! Something that can make your 240 stand out in full parking lot of them

but if you were to take orders...

There is obviously a market for them, this post proves it. (especially if you could do it considerably cheaper) Not to mention the whole forum to sell to. How the aftermarket department hasn't developed much of anything for the 240 blows my mind

Curious what you're going to do with the outer lens to make it actually look like it belongs. How it lights up is one thing, how it looks off is what really matters... To me the '90s stock look (with LEDs like clearcorners does if you prefer) always wins. Have them refinished if you want a fresher look or to clean up the faded grey trim. Have done many sets for zilvians.

I like a take on that first one, but our lights are not flat across the back like a challenger, so here is my take on it.

yup. I dont understand why people are always trying to be different even if it means destroying something that already is perfect.

Keep the kouki tails and ruin the zenki tail lights. Kouki is perfect the way it is (OEM or LED).
