I'm on the fence on these. I really still like the subdued stock ish look. I think they look good, but I have a different direction.

I'm sure these will catch on, will look great if that rear diffuser Mobile Attractions is making comes to fruition.

I really wouldn't call it it plug and play since at very least you have undo a multitude of bumper screws from both the rear wheel wheels and pull away the top front of the front bumper as the bumper clips into the lower retainer of the lights... I found it easier to just remove the whole bumper completely off to protect it from when I work on the lights. also you are actually installing 4 lights total as the trunk lights are separate...

all in all, its easy but time consuming work as opposed to my goat which was two screws directly on the light, now that I would consider plug and play.

Does the bracket under the aftermarket light have more "bite" on it than the stock bracket? This is the cause of the loose bumpers because the stock bracket doesn't really clip in as well as it should which cause the fascia to pop out.

Stock bracket for reference:




Suck, squeeze, bang, blow

I didn't have any issues with the aftermarket brackets on the lights, they clipped in fine. when putting the bumper back on I started with those clips first on both lights. (helps to have a 2nd set of hands for this step)

I checked with the folks at Spyder Auto, and they said their lights are tested and meant for 2014-2016 model year and we're not compatible for 2017, because they haven't been tested. On the vehicle yet....
