I have been tossing around the idea of getting some of these HSV 427 black taillights. However, I have seen on some websites that they are specifically stated as 'aftermarket' and not Genuine HSV taillights.

I'm sure there are Genuine HSV 427 black taillights, but does anyone know the difference between the Genuine and the 'aftermarket' 427 taillights?

Thanks!

The aftermarket 427's usually bought from Burg have a big chrome ring around the red lens. The real ones do not.

They're not too bad. Under AU$400 plus postage. Remember, they should not charge VAT on an exported item. CC me with your source in Oz. I've got one too. Thanks.

If I remember my headlights correctly, the fake 427 taillights match our headlights exactly because of the chrome rings.

Get the real deal!

I just got the real ones $430.00 the fake ones are $350.00. The real ones look a lot better and are worth the extra $80.00.

When I click on that link, then click on the picture of the rear of the car for full screen, I get nothing but spam and spyware pop ups.

No Coness,
Let me know what you decide. I might be game for buying a set, maybe we can save on shipping.(I can't fork out the bucks right now though.)

i talked to the seller. roughly $250US shippped. cant beat that price. comes with all necessary wiring harness. should be plug and play.
i am leaning towards these b/c of the price. i hoped to be buying in the next month or so. :cool:

The thing is... I hate chrome. There is way too much chrome in those taillights on ebay that GTOdriver7 posted. The taillights on the real HSV427 doesn't *seem* to have all that chrome.

I'll spend the extra money to get the 'chrome-delete mod' on the taillights... however, that is just me... I'm funky like that!

Re: HSV 427 taillights

427 HSV Genuine taillights

This is what the 427 Ligthts look like from the side view. No chrome visible.
The non genuine lights show chrome around the lens and is clearly visible in a side view. Obviously from behind the rings in the lense are even more visible.
