Are Depos vland? or is there an aftermarket tail light that's better than the rest? I'm not even sure what brand mine are lol, whatever USP sold me at a car show.

My understanding is that Depos are made Taiwan and Vland in China.
I have been pretty happy with my Depos in terms of fitment (adjustable w/ torx screws) and finish so far. I donít think Vland tails have torx screws for fine adjustability.

I will be very attentive to the publications you make.

No depo and vland are different they aren't the same. Depo are better when it comes to quality and fitment.

I felt like I've seen more people happy with their depos vs people with other reps, so I was curious.

I'll probably end up ordering a pair pretty soon...

depo would be the only aftermarket led tails I would get if I didn't have oem leds.

I have several colleagues from the Spanish forum waiting for definitive information about your system.

They look like they would complement the Osram headlights well.
