No...not at all. They fit perfectly. Same screw holes. No fuss. I just had to figure out the wire colors with a common tester and wahlah.

And by the way... if anyone gives it a try, My 09 357qs tail light wires are BROWN...BLACK...and BLUE. The wires on the light are RED...WHITE...and BLACK. And so it's Coach BLACK to Light WHITE...Coach BROWN to Light BLACK...Coach BLUE to Light RED. I hope that will help. At least that is what they were on mine.

I have heard the stories about the "old style" lights not melting snow. I find it hard to believe that a 12 volt bulb or even two 12 volt bulbs in one assembly can generate enough heat to melt snow on the lens.

I have a 2005 Georgetown 325 SE and want to replace the existing rectangular tail lights with an LED assembly to provide more visibility both in the daytime and night.
Is there a unit that will easily replace my incandescent lights?

True - but if it's snowing outside,that means it's cold outside also. I'm guessing The overhead bulbs are inside - makes a difference.

Dmoore1776... if your tail lights are the single rectangle with the reverse white lens in the middle, then I'm not sure. On Ebay, there are many different led lights that you might want to browse threw. Maybe Amazon also. I hope you find what you want.
