I think those are the new BuddyClub tails. You can see them in their recent promo video:

BC's previous tails were 'inspired' by Lambo Aventador, these new ones also look inspired by the Lambo Huracan...

Yeah they do look more like Buddy Club's than Tom's.

Original Tom's are still my fave.

While they do look like Buddy Clubs, why would Buddy Club plaster Toms stickers on their car?

Maybe just some guy that put tom's plate and badge on car.
Not actually Tom's demo car.

I'm thinking these are Buddy Club's. Either way, not for me. I'm into the OG TOM's.

These are not buddy clubs. Those seem to be TOMS

While these really are what the new buddy clubs look like...



I guess 2018 is going to be all about giving us options as long as we like one design/layout.

By the way the guy who posted this insta pic claims the buddy clubs are for sale now but I could not find them anywhere.

I think BuddyClub is the distributor for Tom's, or something. The companies have a relationship such that when I had issues with my lights, Tom's put me in touch with BuddyClub here in the states. So maybe that explains it? I dunno.

These are the new Toms which are a red version of the new buddyclub.
Toms and buddyclub are distributed by the same company.

There may be a lot of truth in that. Honestly if you look closely they are essentially the same tail light but TOMS has a red lens. If you pause the buddy club video when the girl is opening the trunk and check out the tail lights you can see that they have a clear lens like the pic I posted.

I love the tail light lay out but it does kind of suck that as consumers we will be getting the same design from 2 companies. Now valenti has to come out with a similar tail layout but with a smoked lens lol.

So save money and buy the buddy clubs and just tint them red.
