Re: Tail light supplier

Unfortunately they do not sell the face-lift version in South Africa. I have now bought Depo lights for the facelift model in Dubai. I fortunately have someone that can bring them for me. Fully functional (Not Dummy) set of lights R904 if you can figure out how to get it here
