US models come standard with amber side markers. Any source for clear in US as in Europe? Or in London, UK area?
I could not find the bushing that everyone describes in their install. I completed it today on a 2021 4S and couldn't find the clip that everyone refers to. Did you see the clip and use it in your install? I wonder if it was removed from the markers for 2021. I looked everywhere. They seem tight and are just a bit larger than the old markers. Thoughts from anyone?Just installed the clear side markers on my Black 2021 Taycan Turbo.

They are “U” shaped plastic shims, glued to the old side markers. About 1/8” thick or so. One leg of the “U” larger.I could not find the bushing that everyone describes in their install.

I have the old amber ones and there are no tabs glued on. The new model sold to me by Porsche was 9J1 953 041F and 042F, wonder if there is a marker change from 2020 models to 2021. The old marker model number is 9J1 945 061F and 062F manufactured on 1/8/2021. Maybe they removed the clips.They are “U” shaped plastic shims, glued to the old side markers. About 1/8” thick or so.

As advised by drivers in this good thread, a careful removal with a box knife does the trick by gently sliding the knife between the shim and the marker. The shims come off quite easily but watch your fingers.
I used contact cement to help hold them in place while I reinstalled the markers.
Bill when I see you next, we will compare markers as I do believe it sticks out a bit wider than the amber markers but not much. There were no clips on the old ones and no clips on the new ones and no clip on the holder. The key to a 2021 install is patience, small hands and the prescrew hint, if you don't do that it will never go in.Based on what you and @rquinton posted, it appears that Porsche changed the design. The old spacers were a bit odd so I'm glad to hear the markers were modified. As long as you pre-thread the screw (and back it out) in the clear marker before installing it, the new part tightens down fairly well with or without the spacer.
This is an absolute must IMO, but a minor correction - the side/rear reflectors are still red!!
Had the time and rainy weather to install the clear side markers. Thanks to all for the great instructions found in this thread, the job was quick and easy. A major improvement over the US stock.
The only color on the car, other than silver or black, now resides with the Porsche crest!
That's what I'm doing. Told my salesmen to install before delivery.I had the dealer install the clear side markers before delivery this week. It is one of my favourite options on the car! This was the first Taycan they had done. Looks amazing. They didn’t charge me for the lights or the install - but then again I did pay full MSRP for a custom build so it is the least they could do IMO.
