Default VLand 3IS Taillights (Similar to 78Works & Spec-Ds)

Stumbled upon a vendor that sold these taillights and saw that they actually looked better (imo) than the 78works/Spec-Ds I was going to get. They look more streamlined and aggressive compared to the 78works/Spec-Ds and the best part is it is true plug-and-play. The resistor is built inside the housing so installation was extremely simple, no wire tapping required. I thought I'd share this new brand of taillights with the community as I think it definitely gives it a much more updated look since I haven't seen anyone else rocking them in the community yet. I'll upload a video showing how the signal/brake/reverse/emergency indicators look on these taillights.

Looks great, John! The outer tail lights appear to protrude outward slightly, giving a greater in-depth looking taillight with the turn signal present. Comparing it with the ES, it definitely modernizes the rear significantly. And what makes it great is that it's completely plug and play.

I have to agree, very clean looking! Think I like those better than the Spec D's....

Is that a bulge on the side? Can't really tell.

For those asking, looks like it is this item: https://www.ebay.com/itm/112700979403

They also have a smoked version: https://www.ebay.com/itm/112700981523

I agree, these look better than even my smoked specD. Wish they were out a year ago. Nice to see that they are plug and play too, though I admit my Spec D even with wiring/unbolting took me 30 min all in or so for a complete noob.

Looking forward to the video, as from the pic shown on eBay, the brake light seems just a tad weak. Hopefully that's just their picture..

I can't tell from any of the pics, but can the reverse and turn signal light bulbs be changed? I have led lights in both my turn signal and reverse lights that are SUPER bright and good looking and don't want to loose them to a sealed light housing, forcing you to stick with the bulbs are are in it.

Wow, they look great, Definitely closest to 3is for sure. They are more like the ones Nigel offers.
One thing I really like better on my Spec-D ones is the brake light going all the way across.

I loved that about the Spec-D's, although these do look better overall. It will be hard to decide when it comes time to purchase

Those look hot, nice find. I have been digging through the older threads trying to decide between the Nigel, 78 works and Spec-D as a first mod.

So on the Spec-D both the fender portion and the trunk portion of the light activate when braking? Sounds like this is not true for some others?

I actually dont even know if the stock ones work this way or not, have to get the wife out into the garage and check.

Hmmmm, only 06-08 listed? Are all years of ISF tails the same?
