Wunderlich tail conversion

Heads up for anyone looking to purchase this in the US

Wunderlich currently has a side-mount license plate holder, but their US plate adapter doesn’t work with it. I reached out to them to let them know, and they’re currently working on fabricating a new adapter to work with this part. They were super quick to respond / help figure this out.

The issue is with the license plate light bracket. This bolts on between the tail conversion and the plate adapter. While the tail conversion has bolt holes that line up with the plate adapter, the license plate light bracket bolt hole spacing is too narrow for their current adapter.

You can mount a Euro plate to it, as initially designed.

Wunderlich USA made an adapter plate for US plates. This, and only this, doesn’t currently work but is being revised right away.

You can also re-use the plate adapter that comes on US spec R18s if you want, but the thin metal plate designed by Wunderlich is quite nice.

Is this available yet?
I haven’t received their plate adapter in the mail yet, I imagine due to the holidays. But as I mentioned above all US spec R18s come with an adapter on the back. The reflectors disconnect easily and then bolt right on. The difference with Wunderlich is it’s a (slightly) lower profile and is made of metal vs plastic.

(It’s not centered in the photo as I threw it on quickly just for the photo)

Could you also give us more information (or a new topic) concerning the rear indicators we see on your photo.

They look like the Kellermann Bullet 1000 DF, any problem to connect them ?

Thanks Chris
