rear light confusion

Ive got a 5dr mk2b active 8v

I was told (by another fiat forum) that the active sport rear lights would fit. But they dont.
Are the 5dr different to the 3dr.
I really like the lights.

Re: rear light confusion

Both different. I agree 3Dr rear light is better looking than 5Dr.

Re: rear light confusion

One thing i have noticed (having had both a 5door & 3 door)...
My 3 door active sport seems to suck a hell of a lot more muck up from the road onto the rear window when it's raining.
Not sure if it's to do with the sporting bumper, the rear spoiler or the fact that the Tailgate flows straight down from the window unlike the 5 door which is stepped just below the glass

I can see what you mean looking at a grey car but my car is bright red so I have never noticed it so far anyway!
