Thanks gr8scape, I finally can post the picture. The photo above is the Rumion taillights after installed onto XB. You can see the gap in this angle. I will post 2 more photos, one you can barely see the gap and the third one from behind which you won't see the gap at all.

If anyone can come up with the solution how to fill in the gap without replacing the Rumion bumper would be great. Otherwise, I think I can live with it since I love to have the 2 reverse lights after all. Hope it helps.

That gap isn't NEARLY as bad as I had expected!

I might look into these as a "long term" item for my OWN box.

The Rumion taillights look great too bad it wasn't meant to be installed on the xB... With the proper mods, it could really look super.

I officially want these lights! How much did it cost to get wired up for your back up lights? and this might be a stupid question but will it be bad if water gets in the gap?

Well, I am no experts on this kind of electronic hook up, so I went to an after market shop and they charge $50 an hour. So the whole job took couple of hours. If the dealer willing to do it for you but they charge $90 per hour. If you are really interested and not willing to do the wiring yourself, go around different places to get the BEST price. I was in a hurry to get it done before the holidays, so I just call couple of places and I went for the cheaper place. I believe most of the place can't tell you exactly until they take a look. And even they only spend 1 hour and 5 min to do it they probably will charge you for a 2 hour job. But they did a good job so I don't mind to spend the money.

As far as the water goes into the gap question. It actually not a stupid question, I had the same question to the tech guy and also couple members told me the same thing. The lights and the panels are all sealed, so water will not go inside. When water goes into the gap, it would just leak out behind the bumper and to the ground. I did couple test myself on that, so it should not cause any problem at all.

Hope it helps. Again, even it got that little gap, I love to have 2 reverse lights. : ) Also, I ordered the lights through ebay from a Japan shop and only took 10 days to get here from Japan. Pretty quick.

The tech guy said he got couple wires reverse since the Japanese lights are opposite than the Xb...something like that. But I guess he pretty much follow the XB wiring and match to the Japanese one in order to make it work. But again, I am not 100% sure, I paid him to help me so all I care was to make everything works, and he did.
