I no longer have the rear spoiler. Now I feel strange not having the added protection of the 3rd brake light. Has anyone installed the OEM 2.5 RS brake light ? Looks like it is the same package shelf but without holes for mounting and electrical. Called the dealer and they told me it should fit and gave me a piece price of $130.00. Seems kind of expensive.

you need to get the light, you'll have a much higher chance of getting pulled over without one.

isnt the stocker just an LED bar or something, you should able just to pop it underneath the carpeting somehow and get away with that, or does the rear window border get in the way?

No inspections in Michigan but I don't want to give the cops any reason to pull me over. Think I will look at the local junk yard before buying new. Thanks for the info.

Yea. My dealership quoted me the same for the 3rd brake light tray. I just took the tray out of my car.. cut 3 holes.. 2 for the bolts and 1 for the wire to plug in the brake light. Quite easy to do and you can't tell it with the light installed.

got mine off ebay for $40 and it took some fabrication to the deck lid to get it to work. the wiring harness was already there and that was simple.
