Hey Michael,
Thanks, your car was the inspiration for me to do mine! And your car does look stunning thumbsup
I'm hoping that it will be a case of just doing the handover and I wont have the annoying fast indicator noise inside the car anymore.
I will update once I get it into the OPC

nick, i am almost positive that your rear module final setting may still be set as incandescent and not LED. i think during the handover and settings copying the the module may have been reset.

to those that are doing the conversion, depending upon the year of your car (i think this applies for 2005) your rear light male plug is a tad too long and the 2009+ taillight even when plugged in will not have the electrical contacts connect. either the plastic tabbing needs to be shaved or the rear tailight female coupler needs to be shaved down a few mm. i had the exact same issue as nick when i was supervising my conversion, and thought my lights were damaged until i had the body shop doing some shaving and it worked.

ps nick, you car looks great - you need a full interior + exterior photoshoot done when its all sorted.

obviously i love the 997.2 clears + conversion.

Slightly off subject but Michael might know , I am not on the hunt for a set of clear rears for my gen2 , I have seen a set but is says US spec and that they wont be uk legal does this mean there is no amber indicator and that it flashes red instead. thought I should ask before throwing away money Grin Thumb

while i am not 100% sure re the differences between uk + na road legal dot requirements, but i can tell you that there is no amber at all on my clear tail tails or any that i have seen anywhere in north america + canada - so chances are you are 100% correct.
