Need tail light opinions

My passenger side tail light has a hole in the housing and needs replaced but I'm unsure with what. Online it looks like OE comparable lights go for around $60 and OEM for around $150, are there any real difference? Ive been driving for a while now and the bulbs are probably about blown anyway, plus the housing cost to much. Also, I'm entertaining the idea of aftermarket LED type lights. Any advice on which i should go with?

Get these and call it a day. Almost 100% OEM look but with a cooler black bezel instead of chrome. I intend to buy them after I get rid the chrome bumper.

But unless im missing something one OEM light will cost almost as much as the pair of aftermarket lights. My dealer quoted me $209 I think for one light. Although I think he got the led/non-led assembly mixed up. What about the OEM vs OE comparable lights?

To give an idea what im talking about at.

Go without LED they look better anyways for only $110. I don't know much about tail lights but ya pay for what you get. If you can get a knock off that looks the same go for it, less money the better.

Thanks,

Brett

Sorry but i'm confused about the above statement. Wouldn't I wanna stay away from knockoffs then?

My pay pal doesn't work so I expect to pay a bit more on a legit site.

I'm just saying I like the stock looking tail light better than the ugly rice rocket style, if its not oem but you can find an aftermarket that looks the exact same I say go for it. That's all.

I feel you. I'm just trying to get as many opinions as I can before I purchase. What would be the benefits of the aftermarket LED tail lights?

Do you have experience with LED tail lights? Are they no brighter? Or anything?

I have these due to busting my stock ones almost 2 years apart and even running factory stock and one of these couldnt tell the difference and zero leaks or problems.
