tyc looks classy if the theme of your car fits it, check my pics for examples, p.s. you have to paint the bezels for them to look good though

i have the carbon fiber altezza corners and the vinyl strip from axisaccord over the center. i think it looks good on my car. i think clear corners in the back, the reflector looking kind would look good to but i think they are illegal here. i want to shave the center lights to

Stock ftw... I really don't like tint on any tails. Shaved center would look pretty clean if you don't have a spoiler on the back, otherwise just debadge your car and it'll be supa clean!

i guess you didnt get my point. if you didnt notice nobody has led tail lights for 4rd accords. i know its too much crome but you can get smoked tail light covers and it should look better. but i have project in mind do to stock conversion
take couple led stop lights from this website http://vehiclelight.com/ledstli.html and fit it into stock tail lights (http://vehiclelight.com/1tl12ri.html) and this (http://vehiclelight.com/1tl16ri.html) or (http://vehiclelight.com/obmcr1.html) its gona cost some money but i bet nobody else has anything like that for 98-02 4dr accord


what you think?

no i didnt get your point because i didn't know you were trying to make a point in the 1st place. :lol:

my post wasn't regarding to you ... it was for the original poster, which has coupe tail lights. i could careless about the sedan because i don't own a sedan.

btw ... i bet the light output on those aftermarket LED tail lights will look crap. now ... if ppl are willing to spend money on sedan, i could make an led conversion, but it wont be cheap.
