I doubt anything will change in such a way that these won't work on the '17.

I did ask that question, and the customer service rep, said his screen said they were working on something compatible, but it wasn't specific. It could be simply testing for comparability to a whole new product. The risk of not waiting and assuming the 2016 version will work is that who knows if a wiring harness was changed or not.

I'm sure these will catch on, will look great if that rear diffuser Mobile Attractions is making comes to fruition.
I like these, but I also agree with you. I definitely want to change out the USA stock, but I prefer the Australian stock version better.

I've noticed with these Spyder's, and the Phillips brand as well, that you loose much of the side light that's on the sides of the tails. They illuminate much more on the stocks than these or the Phillips do. This is the reason I haven't bought them yet. I do like the look more than the stocks.

I am hoping I can get the rear end of a W1 with the OEM LED tail lights. I wish I could do the front end but am worried about the fitment of the extra fender width. Rear fender width is unchanged. My previous issue with using importing OEM LED tail lights is the buildup of moisture inside the lens. Just found out the front fenders of the W1 are plastic, the other special editions are aluminum..... hmmmmm

I would imagine that Holden would NOT change the taillight set up for the 2017 model year, even small cosmetic changes.

I went with these Holden OEM VF2 Taillights instead of the Spyders
