Tail Lights

We really enjoyed the look of the base Cayman tail lights but thought the GTS tail lights would be a worthwhile exterior upgrade to make our Cayman a little more unique. We purchased ours from Suncoast Parts

The install was very straight forward. You just remove a rear internal panel in the trunk area, pull a rubber grommet, and use a T-30 torx bit to remove the one screw holding the tail light housing. A detail guide can be found here on the Planet 9 forum

A quick tip, the tail lights come out easy and quick, so use some painter tape to ensure you don't scratch the rear bumper.

There's one bolt that can be removed by a T-30 torx bit.

We really have fallen in love with the GTS tail lights. A nice upgrade to make the care feel and look distinct and modern.
