    355 side marker lights

    Aside from using the original ferrari side marker lights, does anyone know of any lights that look similar to the ferraris once installed?

    Those lights are the bastard child of the european auto industry! Everyone uses them. Fiat, Jag, Lotus, Ferrari... everyone!

    I purchased "real" side markers for my car only to realize, when I opened that shiny Ferrari Box, that they were identical to my Lotus Esprit Turbo lights.

    Got to checking and wow... they are very widely used. Check you local junk yart... I'm certain you will find some there!

    Case in point...



    The rear lenses are red.

    Best,

    DKOV,
    Those lenses stick outside of the body panels. What I am looking for is to have them sit flush like the 355's do.

    Right... they do. On the Lotus, you use the included rubber "collar" to set it out as it's flush against the body. On the 355, the light is inset into the panel. So you do NOT use the collar and it mounts flush.

    Same lense and socket though

    I purchased my side marker lights from T-Rutlands in Tucker, Georgia. They were $28 each with the wiring pig tails in the box.
    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    what year cars should I look for? Many of the junk yards around me do not allow people to wander around them.
