Video guide on how to install new rear lights - Vland

Today I fitted Vland V2 tail lights to my Subaru BRZ. They are 2017 facelift style lights with the added bonus of sequential indicators. It was super easy and I made a how to video. The before and after difference is amazing, it really refreshes that back end:


There are plenty more how to video coming up as I modify my BRZ, for updates please follow my youtube channel and instagram page:

Did you torque them up to the correct spec? And did you leak test them?

I have found it's very easy for them to let water in if not done correctly, or the gasket isn't seated correctly. You end up with pools of water in the arches and under the boot. I always spray the hose over the car.

That has the correct tightening sequence and torque.

Thanks yes leaked tested and all are fine. Torque settings have also been added to the description of the video for now and an onscreen prompt. I will be uploading a new version of the video later with proper prompts.

Thanks again for your feedback
