    I have a Silver 08 and I was thinking of changing the tail lights to some LEDs but I would like to get some opinions on which ones I should get.

    Don't really like the LED ring, sort of looks like a daisy.

    If you pointed a gun to my head and made me pick one it would have to be the 3rd one.

    Ditto.... Most of those tailights have too much "bling" for my taste. If I could buy some solid red ones I would.

    I'd pick the third one. I'd open it up and black out that last piece of chrome.

    I agree--the daisy-like LEDs look like they belong on the back of a VW Bug. IMHO, tail lights need to be simple. I'm not against LEDs--as they last forever--but when you show off the fact that you have them, not my cup of tea. I'm old school, though.

    I personally like the 05-08 taillights myself and not only bc I have one but I think they look better.
