I saw a VT Calais today & it had 2 park lights on the boot lid above the reverse lights. I had a look in the boot of my executive & it has the holes for the bulbs but no wiring or bulb sockets. Is this a straight forward plug in job with the Calais harness or will I need to run some new wiring? Cheers.

It's a straight harness change that will plug into your existing wiring,the harness is available from Holden.However Calais/Berlina models have reflective lenzing inside the garnish,making it blend in with the complete tail light.The executive does'nt have this and the light's look out of place.I really would'nt bother,spend your money elsewhere.

Nothing :'(
Or get a berlina/calais garnish if you want it bad enough. I've seen SS's with just a little bit of light (just a dot) rather than the whole thing lighting up like on the berlina/calais, looks good! especially if the lights are tinted

Failing that, you could always convert to LED bulbs, and sand off the top of the LED so it 'disperses' the light instead of making it a 'beam' of light.

Just a thought :)

hahahah...seen VT's with a tiny light inside the garnish, looks crap. Better off visiting the wreckers and getting a Berlina/Calais boot garnish.
