Does anyone rate any of these taillight replacements? Not looking to repalce mine anytime soon, just wanting to get a general consensus

If I had to rank those in order of preference, Middle gets #1 (although it looks like the sides don't light up), bottom gets #2, top gets #7.

If you are getting the second tail light set (probably manufactured by FK automotive, ECS sells it for $99), then I can tell that they won't fit properly to the car body with the supplied tail light gasket and leaks water everywhere. I ended up fabricating gaskets my own to fix the water leaks, also one of the bolt in screw came off from the plastic housing very easily which made another mess..

Check the brand of these tail lights, if its made by Helix or Depo they are good. If it's by FK, better avoid those..

I had kinda the last ones there on my car some years ago, but they had smoked field in the middle.
Inpro led lights, dont think they make them anymore.

Not the worst look in the world, but i went more OEM with the whole car so swapped em for facelift ones.

I've seen a few b5's with the No Error Depo's, and they look pretty good.

I'd pick up a set, but I'm not wholly interested in spending $200 on tails. I'd just keep the stockers.

Those actually look pretty good, seen on a car. But for the money I'd buy that Neuspeed RSB I've been eyeing and a sandwich. A few sandwiches, probably. Or one really big sandwich.

Ran a group buy on the bottom ones a while back, had to have them shipped over from Germany. (InPro LED lights)

Still running them currently, and have had zero issues.

Here is a link to my review thread on them, with a bunch of pictures:
