    There dont seem to be any aftermarket full LED tails for Civic hatchbacks. The only ones I know of are the unreleased Mugen ones.

    Everything on the market seem to be for the coupes or sedans.

    Ah, I see. So the sedan lights won't fit the hatch?

    I'm almost positive it's different. It's why no one anywhere has aftermarket tails on their hatchback.

    The outer piece should work on the hatch. Just not the trunk piece for the hatch as they are more flat shape.

    I think they look good. The OEM lights seem kinda cheap IMO. They're over-"jeweled" and complicate the look of the back.

    Doesn't look like they have a Euro-spec. Can't go back to US spec!
