I thought Mini had a recall on all the OEM clears due to FVMSS issues?

No, because it was an aftermarket kit sold separately by dealers. The kit came with reflectors and instructions to install them: http://www.motoringfile.com/howto/Rear%20Reflectors.PDF. Of course, not everybody was willing to drill holes into their bumper.

I'll add my pics to this thread......top pic is our '04 R53 with a set of eBay rear lights that I installed in place of the stock OEM lenses....I rewired the circuit board so the top bulb lights up when braking along with the bottom bulb. Center bulb is still for turn signal. All bulbs in the rear lights are LED's

Bottom picture is the '06 R52 JCW that I picked up a while back, still working on getting the car back together and road worthy.......car came with the LED rear lights when I bought it....I don't really care for them, not sure what I am going to do.....I may try and retro-fit my OE '04 lights back there..or get a set of eBay lights like my R53 has now.....
