Hi All.

I was wondering whether anyone knew the answer to this for certain as I am being told different things. Are the facelift EJ9 and EK9 rear lights the same or are there differences? I was told that the EK9 has a part that is non-reflective which is the key difference but it would be great to hear from someone for certain.

Thanks all.

completely different.
UK/euro spec EJ9/EK1/EK3/EK4: Only the upper portion illuminates when you turn the lights on. as one of the lower sides has the legally required fog light. see photos 1 and 2:

JDM Spec EK2/3/4/9: Both the upper and lower portions illuminate due to no requirement of a fog light at the time in Japan. see photo 3

USDM, EDM, and JDM are all different. USDM and JDM being ALMOST identical (because both top and bottom lights up at night) except the JDM ones do not have the square reflector on the bottom corner. I have both, I will show you pictures here. EDM is different too because almost all cars in Europe use rear fog lights on ONE side of the car and this applies the EKs as well.
