hey y'all. i bought em on ebay for 28 dollars. i can't complain. it's not like i spent 200 bones to get tail lights that look like everyone else. I got a good deal. haha
i was gonna smoke the stocks, but didn't wanna screw them up. so i got these until i get the smoke done on the stock ones. then i'll post pics of that. and if i get pulled over a lot, i'll put the altezza's back on.

I can't believe people can have any thoughts of putting those nasty things on there.

this is funny. a noob like me tryin to show off that I wanna make my car look and perform (like all the ones I have seen on this forum).

The 18's will be here next week (with 35 series tires), and I'm tryin to decide between Toxico HP Shock&Strut, Eibach GC's, and Eibach Sportline (or Pro-Kit). I have great plans for my car, (and hope that I don't get flamed for posting my mods in the future).

I understand they're altezza's, AND they're cheezy. But nobody around Pittsburg, KS has modded cars, and they won't know the difference. And it's not like I'm installing whistles in my pipes (see below*).

Thanks for looking... I promise my car will look better in my next post.

First mod? I thought I saw an aftermarket exhaust and clear side markers.. And tints.. $28 is a damn good deal on the lights! Altezzas aren't my thing, but that's a great price. And if you like it, no one else's opinions matter. So don't take negative comments to heart. Good luck on future mods, and I hope to see more pics up in the near future of new mods. Just an idea, you could smoke your altezzas, because they're probably a lot cheaper than new stock lights if you f/ck it up.

i'm a closet altezza tailight owner

from my uncle's experience, the ride on the sportlines are **** compared to pro-kits, but theres more of a drop. it depends on what youre looking for. if you want the ultimate in ride quality/adjustability get a true coilover setup

looks good...the chrome matches the white....plus if you do any headlamp mods make it clear...not black housed so they can all match and change your rear side marker to clear....it looks good though and for $28 you cant beat that...

DIY smoke your altezzas. they'll look badass, especially when they light up. and i can understand your comment about the price cuz if u can get a cheap mod, then u might as well.

there's only so much money to spend when you keep your car "clean." i've never seen any car that's "clean" and has nearly every mod (kit, tvs, exhaust, doors, hood, rims, f/i, sound system) because eventually everyone calls your car a rice rocket anyway.

i bought the car (v6 & 68K)with the exhaust, AEM CAI and Neuspeed Strut Bar.

I'm excited about fixing up this car. I didn't wanna seem mad or anything. I'll think about smokin the altezza's. They look good for now, and I'll see what it looks like with the rims.

I'm also looking at a used body kit, and I know a co. to do the touch ups and wet sand, then coat the body, too. any advice?

I appreciate all the information I have received. This is what forums are about.

Thanks.

LOL @ Thread..

theres a reason you got them for only 28 dollars.

Its way too long of a list why those tail lights blow.

hmm why spend EXTRA money for something that doesn't look good. can spend that $28 for paint to smoke your OEM's. but whatever floats your boat.
