@H22hatch and @Jbale

Do either of you guys have the final coding for these tails? Hatch, I think it was you that out together an Excel sheet right? I have a pic of it but it's barely readable. Would you happen to have a link to the document? Pre-thanks!



Oh, I got instructions from Audiament... To call them

That honestly irritates the shit out of me. By now they should just be providing the coding instructions to everyone that orders the adapters. I'm just salty about the way they do business. It's not right to have to wait around and get coded at their convenience.

Even though mine work fine I'm going to be pulling them out over the next week or so and selling them. And getting a set of the harness from jbale. That guy is an honest standup guy that really just wants to help the community.

But to answer your question, yes I can send you the spreadsheet, just need your email address.

Awesome, thanks! I'll PM it over to you now.

Ya I feel the same way. (Even though I bought them off eBay) It's phucking antiquated to expect customers to download, install, and configure a VPN so you can tunnel into their computer to take control of it to code their lights in a time zone where there is probably a 10 hour difference.

I'll give them credit for offering the service to help people do it though.

My guess is going from one to the other is fine without reverting as long as anything you set for the euro LED that isn't going to be changed by the new 7.5 tails is set back to stock (If that makes sense).

Others would know better than me but my understanding is that you may be about 80% there.

Good news from e-acca. Now to figure out what to do with this set....

Dear Kaab,

I'm here with the great news for you!

Both missing tail light pieces have arrived today!

We will pack and ship your order tomorrow and will update your tracking details, as soon as the order is shipped.

Hope you have a nice day!

Best Regards,
Natalja

That's awesome! They just tried to deliver the tails to my house, apparently it requires signature. I'll have to go to my local PO tomorrow and pick them up! Really excited.

I ordered from cars245 on 07/02, just got a text that they tried delivering to my house. So 15 days total. I feel bad for the people who waited months.

Ok, so this has probably been answered by I don't feel like going through 70 pages of the thread to find it.

What is the consensus on the R dynamic LED taillights in the US in terms of legality? I'm sure the regular ones are fine but is the tint on the R tails dark enough where they would not be considered DOT compliant?

Love the way the darker ones look but don't want to deal with getting pulled over for stupid tickets.

I would argue there is a fair amount of red in them and they light up plenty bright.

But I'm not a cop having a bad day.

It wasn't the tint as much as the height of the blinking light. The dynamic orange LED strip on the euro tails is not tall enough to meet DOT requirements.
