We are excited to announce our reflector bumper tail lights.
Our plug-in play harness requires no tapping, just plug in to the rear tail lights on each side and into the new replacement reflector kit.
The additional lighting follows your tail light behavior whether it is less or right turn signals or emergency signals; these reflectors will duplicate that behavior. The removal process is simple. Just follow the directions provided in this video.

I like this. This mod adds lights low above the road surface, very useful in low visibility / obscured visibility conditions like heavy fog.

We had done a very similar mod in our two Ford Fusions, to good effect.

Really need to put a demo in the video. Sat through the beginning hoping he’d do a demo first and then scrubbed through the rest with no luck…
Agreed. I also don’t understand why they have the ugly arrow pattern. The tail lights of the MME are simple strips of light without pattern. IMO this product should be the same. I would definitely consider these if it were…

EDIT: Are the lenses of these light also reflectors? (After all, lights aren’t always on.) I suspect that reflectors are required by NHTSA rules, though I don’t know that for a fact…

Two suggestions (not criticisms): Show the final product installed and functioning and have all of the tools ready for installation. I'm interested in the product but not too keen on the lens design.

I would love to be able to install the stock rear fog light (see discussion here : https://www.macheforum.com/site/threads/rear-fog-light.20846/). I know there are several aftermarket options for ICE Mustangs. On my old VW Golf, I was able to buy the switch, wiring, bulb and fuse to install it. It was plug and play. This option would be much more useful in my opinion. In my area, there is very often a very thick fog. Here is the Euroswitch for the Mach-E, with the OEM rear fog switch :

Thank you for the suggestion! I now included a demo in the thread.

Yeah this is a question of adding a wire run, changing out the reverse light assembly for the Euro one which has a red LED built in for the rear fog light, and identifying the ccorrect tie-in points, then enabling it via ForScan.

I also have the switch and the reverse + rear fog light assembly here. Just have to finish working out the wiring connection(s). TBC...

Cool! Would you be so kind as to share with us the different steps of your modification? I am really interested! Where did you get your parts? Thanks!

I got the Euro reverse + rear fog light and the Euro light switch from a nephew in Europe.

I then got an applicable wiring diagram from Su+mach-e (sp?), a fellow member here who owns a Mach E in Germany.

I then located (I think) the appropriate rear fog light signal / control wire in the wiring bundle leading from the BCM by the fuse box to the back of the car.

What remains is the best location to extend the control wire (and to confirm I have the right wire) and also an acquisition of the Euro wire plug & play plastic plug for the reverse light - the US and Euro plugs are similar in shape but different. The Euro plug has three wire leads while the US plug has two... and their guide plug ridges are purposefully different.

I hope I've answered your questions. TBC...

Is it a trick of the light, or does this grey car have blue paint in the tail light recesses? 🤷‍♂️🐩

That's an infinite blue car that's been wrapped.....

I just got these lights today. I'm not sure how visible yet the arrow pattern is (this arrow pattern of LEDs are used in other similar Chinese aftermarket bumper lights), but I can report that these lights appear to also have reflective material so you're not losing that safety function even when they're off. (see photo!)

Picking up some ramps and a drill extension and crawling under my car with a camera when it next stops raining -- stay tuned....
