Configure LWB Turn Signals with Euro Lenses Properly
As Techweenie2 on Instagram says, "Nice. If you know, you know."
The turn signal housings for the U.S. and the Euro LWB cars are very similar, with one major difference. The U.S. housings have a built-in reflector and bulb holder for mounting the city light bulb on the outside of the housing while the Euro lights omit that bulb position and instead have a bracket mounted on the inner part of the housing in order to place the city bulb at that end. Many prefer the look of Euro lenses and they fit just fine except the lighting is off. If the position of the city light bulbs is not changed it causes two oddball effects. First there is no bulb on the end appropriate for Euro lights. And secondly, as there is no divider there the amber lights bleeds into that section (see picture).
Now that high-end cars are so valuable it's become more important for things to be set up correctly. And incorrect items such as this inevitably lead to penalty points in a show. But you can resolve this issue easily and inexpensively with this Audette Collection exclusive product.
After much searching we were able to obtain OEM Porsche divider panels. Apparently there are none available with the bulb mounts built-in so we went ahead and devised a tidy way to add them. Installation is easy as all housings come with small mounting "nubs" for installing the divider panels. Just install and connect the wire to the same place that the incorrect U.S. city light bulb was connected.
