    I was in a very minor accident this afternoon where another driver cracked and scratched up my driver-side, rear tail light. Searching around this wonderful site, I found the Toyota part number to be :
    81560-04160
    Amazon Link for OEM Toyota light
    (I don't understand why the picture looks so crappy. I assume the light would come new and clean...?)

    My question, how does the light above compare to the others Amazon sells? I'm guessing these are just aftermarket guys that make "OEM" but might not come with a little harness or something.
    Option #2

    The person who hit me will buy the part, so the cost doesn't matter to me as much, but I'm not the kind of person to screw someone over just because I can... Any help is appreciated!

    The picture cleans up as it loads. It's a progressive jpeg, and really not a good one.

    As to aftermarket... they leak. They ALL leak. You'll get fogging first time you wash it or it rains.

    I would have them buy it from the stealership. It is 224 dollars i think. I paid 192 for mine with my military discount. I had a garage accident with mine.

    Get a factory replacement. You'll regret aftermarket.
