I also purchased these from a Chinese website. Cost about $80 USD for all 4. Very easy to install, took 5 min tops. No idea how these compare to the OEM ones but for that amount of money I don't really care haha

Just installed my PimpMyEv puddle lights. $90 shipped (if you order OEM from Suncoast they are $159 and ordered with the car is a $330 option). It does take some time to receive and you have to email him what you want as the Taycan/Porsche stuff is not on his website anymore.

If you can change your cell phone case and plug it in to charge, you can do this mod.

You do not need the interior tools (I had them for my Dashcam install), a plastic card will work. Insert it in the top edge of the puddle light on one side and push you will feel the clip release, move to the other side and it will come out in your hand. The clips are a little different on the new one. The lens (red area) is glued to the housing (some other puddle lights have you replace that, this is a complete replacement, but I will say the glue is minimal so handle gently). Squeeze the sides of the black plug and pull it out of the OEM light housing. Plug it into the new puddle light (only fits one way) and snap the light back into the door. Done.

Just installed my puddle lights this afternoon. Took all of 3 minutes to do both sides. Used a plastic trim tool to be safe. Light popped right out, unclip both sides of the wiring harness and install new light. I got mine from…https://www.addcarlights.com/product/porsche-logo-door-lights/

Model D, Style A. If you use “newuser15” it gives you 15% off so price drops from $56.99 to $48.45 and free shipping. Takes about 2-3 weeks for delivery. Looks great. Me gives 13/10 for coolness and value. Also adds 6 HP.

Another successful installation of the PimpMyEV custom puddle lamps. Followed these instructions from @PDACPA. Couldn't be easier and is so much better than Porsche's OEM lights. There is a little bit of light bleed around the lamp, but not significant at all.

I got some puddle lights from addcarlights too, they contacted me by email to confirm the right lights and they arrived in about 3 weeks. I used the instructions in this thread to install it (thanks!) -- it was indeed quite easy and the (quartz) lights look great, very sharp and a bit brighter than the standard lights.

Did you have to adjust the ones for the rear doors? I installed mine but the rear ones didn’t project correctly, as the door panel is actually blocking some of the lights. The seller had me adjust the little disc inside the projector which seems to help.

just received them. Went to install them. Seems our car did not come with lights in that location, only a red plastic lens there. Wire harness and plug still present inside door. Plugged it in and no power. Guess the stock puddle lights have to be coded in the PCM somehow if not originally part of the build? How can we get 12v to the harness when the doors open?
