You'll need the license plate garnish for a 2013+ retrofit

I park the 2011 right next to a 2014 on a daily basis. By eyeball this outer tail light appears to be identically shaped but entirely different patterns in terms of what they project to the eye. The light I am referring to is on the passenger quarter panel and nowhere near the license plate.

It it is helpful when those that understand provide accurate information. Thanks for looking roadfrog!!

Trunk Panel Lights do not bolt on interchange!!

I don't have workshop manuals for neither the 07-09 MY or 13-17 but I already have the tails for my 2013 facelift project and have no reason to believe it wouldn't bolt up. The inner tails are what won't fit without the 13-17 license plate garnish which I'm either gonna try and cut+bondo my 2007 or source a new or used one instead. Can't promise pictures anytime soon, maybe in 6-8 months time.

You need the complete trunk and bumper to complete the look.

Damn look at that, a completed facelift! I can tell because the door chrome trim doesn't line up. Very nice work.
