    I think that the only difference is that the Euro spec lights have the rear fog light sockets.

    I agree with Brastic, the size and shape is the same as the US version, just the sockets are different. If you do get a Euro version, just dont wire up the fog light. The fog light is just a set of bulbs that is "on" when the car is running, simular to our day time running lamps except in the rear.

    so they, have a extra bulb inside , this is the 355 lenses with the amber centers
    In the USA if you pay a company / person to start a plug, then it,s your plug and work ,it is not theirs to sell or trade !!

    good question, i've wondered this !

    I have a question for the US guys - does the whole circle light up ? I have Uk spec lights and the other half of the segment bulb wiring was not linked up - i had to modify them so that the whole circle lit.

    So i'm also wondering if the difference is half segment / full segment illumination ?

    on the tail lights i had in the 355 the center had a white tube inside like pvc so it only sent light thru the center an it was only the 2 inside lights for reverse the outsides did not have anything in the middle for a bulb, now you could order 4 inside lights
